If you're busy planning your "True Blood" Season 6 premiere party, this official cocktail should be just the thing to liven up your cocktail list. Zap2it can exclusively reveal a new drink out of the upcoming "True Blood" cookbook, "True Blood Drinks & Bites."
Called "Lumière Sparklers," the non-alcoholic beverage includes a ginger and rosemary-infused simple syrup, sparkling apple cider and unsweetened pomegranate juice. The virgin cocktail is an homage to the Lumière Fruit the fairies ate in "True Blood" Season 5. Hopefully this drink doesn't have the same negative side effects that the fruit it's based on did. You can find the full recipe by clicking on the image below.
"True Blood Drinks & Bites" was written by Gianna Sobol, Alan Ball and Benjamin Hayes, with recipes by Dawn Yanigahara. It's due in stores on June 11. In addition to the Lumière Sparklers, there are recipes for Scorn Fritters, Cheese Stakes, Maenad a Trois and Vamp Repellent. The new recipes are accompanied by unpublished original photography from the first five seasons of "True Blood" and quotes and commentary from the characters.
The sixth season of "True Blood" premieres on HBO on June 16 at 9 p.m. ET. In anticipation of that debut, the "True Blood" Volume 4 soundtrack, which includes music by Iggy Pop with Bethany Cosentino, Alabama Shakes and The Flaming Lips, is due out on May 28.
