Bloody Brews to Toast to True Blood’s Final Season


Bon Temps has been rocked for seven years with the emergence of vampires, but this final venture into the Louisiana bayou might be the craziest yet. While we can’t shed a bloody tear for True Blood’s final season on Sunday, we can at least raise a glass to Sookie, Bill, Eric, Pam, and the rest of the gang for ensuring our summers sizzled over the years. Shake up a couple of these cocktails as you gather your nest to tune into the last season premiere, and she if your canines don’t grow with delight!
