    2. Bloody Brains — iZombie

    1 1/4 oz strawberry vodka

    1/8 oz Rose's lime juice

    3/4 oz Baileys Irish Cream

    Splash of grenadine

    Wednesdays (starting Oct. 7)

    This twist on the classic White Russian adds cola, giving it a little sweet and fizz plus a darker look.

    4. Salt and Brimstone — Supernatural

    The CW / Lady M / Via

    Mix any kind of margarita you like, and the ring of salt will keep any demons out of your drink. For extra flair/hellfire, add a flaming piece of citrus peel.

    You'll need:

    3 oz tequila

    2 oz lime juice

    1 oz simple syrup

    1/2 to 1 tsp orange liqueur

    1 Tbsp. salt

    Thursdays (starting Oct. 8)

    5. Blood (Orange) Cosmopolitan — The Vampire Diaries

    The CW / MB Morell / Via

    Add a little blood orange juice to your Cosmo recipe to get a citrusy variation that's both delicious ~and~ visually unsettling!

    You'll need:

    2 oz freshly squeezed blood orange juice

    2 oz cointreau

    3 oz vodka

    3 ozs cran-raspberry juice

    Drink every time: You sob because Elena's gone but then feel OK because Damon's still here.

    6. The Highbrid

    The CW / Mix That Drink / Via

    Originally called the Highline Spritzer as it was inspired by New York's High Line parks, this cocktail can be considered a hybrid since it mixes spirits (tequila) with wine (prosecco). It does not have the werewolf gene as far as we know.

    You'll need:

    1 1/2 oz white tequila

    3/4 oz Lillet Rose

    3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

    3/4 oz lavender syrup

    1 oz prosecco

    Drink every time: Somebody talks about hybrids.

    Fridays (starting Oct. 9)

    7. Mary, Queen of Scotch — Reign

    The CW / Edsel Little / Via Flickr: 27119975@N00

    You don't find a lot of cocktails with scotch in them, which is what makes this one both delicious AND rare. You might know it by its original name, Blood and Sand, which still sort of applies to Reign in a way.

    You'll need:

    1 oz Scotch, blended

    1 oz cherry liqueur

    1 oz sweet vermouth

    1 oz orange juice

    Drink every time: There's some hot, hot 16th-century lovin' happening onscreen.

    8. The Boozy Tooch — America's Next Top Model

    The CW / Mix That Drink / Via

    If you're going to drink during ANTM, you need a cocktail that is as fabulous, complex, and intense as Tyra Banks herself. This cocktail has enough sweetness to hide all the rum you're drinking, so watch out. It'll sneak up on you, just like Tyra.

    You'll need:

    1 oz Malibu coconut rum

    1 oz Midori

    1/2 oz blue curaçao

    2 oz pineapple juice

    1 oz lemon juice

    1/2 oz simple syrup

    Splash 7-Up

    Drink every time: Something completely insane happens on the show.

    Mondays (starting Oct. 12)

    9. The Crazy Ex — Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

    The CW / Mix That Drink / Via

    With a mix of apple and cranberry, this cocktail is a little bit sweet and a little bit sour. Kinda like that one ex you have. You know, the one that would probably move to West Covina to get back together with you, just like how Rachel Bloom does on this new musical comedy show.

    You'll need:

    3 oz apple vodka

    3 oz cranberry juice

    Drink every time: Rachel Bloom sings something hilarious.

    Learn how to make it here (basically just shake 'em up together).

    10. Virgin on the Beach — Jane the Virgin

    The CW / Mix That Drink / Via

    A show about a virgin naturally would go great with a virgin cocktail. This is just a classic Sex on the Beach with no alcohol, so if you're feeling boozy you can always add a couple ounces of vodka.

    You'll need:

    3 oz cranberry juice

    3 oz grapefruit juice

    2 oz peach nectar

    Drink every time: The narrator's velvety voice purrs into your ear.

    Learn how to make it, and a couple variations on it, here.
