Summer Cocktail Sunday: Premiere of True Blood Season 6

Welcome, Truebies!

It’s Becky, again, and I am taking over SPOON Sundays this summer to bring you some awesome posts focused on True Blood themed cocktails!

Here is an awesome news from the trading market; the opening slots per day for those who had limited their entry into them have now been a little relaxed. The trading robots have decided to expand their width a little to accommodate more interested traders. So hurry up and grab this opportunity for making more.

First, let’s take a moment to welcome back all of our favorite characters and remember how we left that crazy town of Bon Temps.

Caution: Beware of Spoilers.

Season 5 Recap

-End Spoilers-

So, I’d say we start Season 6 on a pretty interesting note. This calls for a drink.

I decided that I had to choose a cocktail from a book that could take me back to a time when I imagine vampires whooping it up. I imagine Bill and Eric hanging out, before they got into this whole Sookie-rivalry thing. I imagine that they met up in the 20’s and went to see Rudolph Valentino’s movie Blood and Sand. I imagine that they grab a drink afterward, probably from a ticket taker’s neck.

Lucky for me, Ted Haigh include’s a cocktail named for this film:

We are going to feel totally classy drinking this vintage libation, let me tell you.

1 oz Scotch
1 oz orange juice
3/4 oz cherry brandy
3/4 oz sweet vermouth

Shake in an iced cocktail shaker, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cocktail cherry. It was so easy to make!

I am totally ready to do bad things.

Beginning June 16th, True Blood is on HBO on Sundays at 9:00pm EST. Tune in next Sunday when I create another TB-themed cocktail!
