With the highly anticipated sixth season of HBO’s True Blood approaching rather quickly, fans are curious to see what Alan Ball’s replacement will do to the show. Between werewolves, religious movements, military overtones, and faeries, viewers’ patience is running thin with Ball’s overly saturated themes. Should viewers expect True Blood’s multiple plot-lines to come to a simmer by HBO’s decision to cut two episodes from their standard 12? Either way, there’s no denying a Truebie’s thirst, and here’s three cocktails to celebrate the premiere.


After Dark INGREDIENTS • 1.5 oz. vodka • 1/2 oz. ginger syrup • 1/2 lemon juice DIRECTIONS Pour 2 oz. Tru Blood over ice and into a highball glass. Shake the rest of the ingredients and layer over the Tru Blood. Will cause a two-tone effect. Garnish with a slice of ginger and a slice of blood orange.

Team Billith INGREDIENTS • 1.5 oz. orange vodka • 1/2 oz. lime juice • 3 oz. ginger beer • 3 oz. Tru Blood DIRECTIONS Pour all ingredients into a highball glass with ice; garnish with an orange wedge. Faerie’s Nectar INGREDIENTS • 1.5 oz. pink grapefruit vodka • 3 oz. grapefruit juice DIRECTIONS Shake with ice and strain over cubed ice into a glass. Top with 3 oz of Tru Blood. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.
