UNAUTHORIZED TRUE BLOOD DRINKING GUIDE

COCKTAILS BY KITCHENOVERLORD

image

ERIC NORTHMAN (TURNED AROUND 930 AD)

THE MAN

Vikings were the badasses of the ancient world. They were taller, they were stronger, and they were downright meaner than nearly everyone they met. Even their food was badass. Any civilization that considers rotted shark meat (known as Hakarl) a delicacy is made of people who aren’t afraid of anything.

Eric was the son of a Viking warlord. In the series, his parents were more than ready for him to get married and produce some legitimate grandchildren, but he was having too much fun lingering with ladies and fighting with friends. (Fans of Charlane Harris’s books know he had a very different origin story in print.) Before he could find a wife, a group of werewolves slaughtered his entire family.

This early exposure to the supernatural didn’t stop a mortally wounded Eric from accepting Godric’s offer of eternal life. Being a vampire was better than being dead. Plus, it would give him eternity to carry out his father’s dying wish to avenge their family.

Young Eric would’ve grown up drinking anything he could loot from the more settled people to the south. This meant he would’ve enjoyed plenty of Roman influenced wine, German ale, and Central European hard cider.

Once he came home, though, he would’ve wanted a big mug of good Viking mead.

THE CULTURE

Most Vikings drank what modern brewers call a melomel – basically, alcohol made by adding some berries or fruit to the honey. The berries give yeast a little something extra to eat, ensuring a better quality of fermentation.

Unlike Russell Edgington’s hard cider, which is drinkable in five days, Eric’s Viking mead takes up to a year to fully mature. This was the drink of victory and celebration. His people imagined it was a pale reflection of what their gods drank in Valhalla. Modern Eric might remember it as being nearly as tasty as fairy blood.

THE DRINKS

If you want to drink like a real Viking, break into your neighbor’s house and take whatever they have in the fridge. Help yourself to their jewelry, furniture, and daughters while you’re at it.

If you’re not in the mood to explain your actions before a judge, you could always pick up a bottle of mead from your local liquor store and spice it up at home. It’ll lack the subtle flavor that only comes from sacking your enemies, but it makes up for it by leaving you to enjoy your hangover in your own bed instead of in a jail cell cuddled up with a meth addict.

POISON-FREE SPICED MEAD

- 1 bottle Mead
– ½ inch freshly peeled Ginger Root
– 4 Whole Cloves
– 1 Cinnamon Stick
– ½ teaspoon Ground Allspice
– 1 pint Blackberries or Strawberries
– 2 cups Water

Bring your water to a boil. Gently crush your spices in order to release the aromatic oils within and dump them in the water. Simmer until the water is reduced by half. Meanwhile, throw your berries in a blender with a quarter cup of water and liquefy them. When everything in the blender is as smooth as you can possibly make it, strain the solids from the berry juice.

Once the spice water has reduced down to one cup, strain out the whole spices and mix the remaining liquid with your berry juice. Add your bottle of mead and give everything a hearty stir. You can either warm the mead up and serve it hot on a cold winter night or put the mix in fridge and serve it iced during the summer.

You’ll end up with a sweet, spiced, fruity mead incorporating all the flavors the Vikings would’ve taken for granted without any of the pesky hygiene issues or horrible skunky flavor they also took for granted. Ignore anyone who claims people only drank pure honey mead with no fruit or spices. That stuff was almost impossible for the Vikings to make. Even modern homebrewers use chemical tablets to give the yeast a little something extra to feed from. Instead, enjoy your modernized mead goodness along with other luxuries like indoor plumbing, electricity, and hot Scandinavian men who appear shirtless on television.

ERIC NORTHMAN’S FAIRY BLOOD MEAD

True sticklers for authenticity can try to make a batch of mead as horrifyingly awful as the stuff real Vikings drank 1000 years ago. No one makes it like this anymore – and for good reason. Reading about the process is enough to inspire sacrifices to the wine god of your choice to thank them for modern brewing.

- 16 lbs raw, unpasteurized Honey
– 4-5 gallons purified Spring Water
– 1 pint Blackberries or Strawberries
– 5 oz sliced fresh Ginger Root
– ½ tsp fresh grated Nutmeg
– 1/4 tsp fresh Rosemary
– 6 whole Cloves
– 1 Cinnamon Stick
– 1 tsp ground Eggshells
– 1 tbsp Champagne Yeast

Don’t balk at the quantity of honey. If you’re going to bother making a recipe that takes a full year to mature, you might as well have plenty of it to enjoy when it’s finally ready to drink.

Step 1: Get a ginormous stockpot. Heat your spring water until it boils. You don’t want to use distilled water. The trace minerals in spring water are actually helpful.

Step 2: Once your water is at a good, healthy boil, stir in all the spices. This will get a little messy. Keep stirring.

Step 3: Let your mix boil for about 15 minutes so the flavors will have a chance to get to know one another.

Step 4: Let your water cool for about 20 minutes. You want it to still be hot, but not quite boiling. Now add your honey. Stir until your arms are tired. You want that big sticky mess to completely blend with the hot water and spices.

Step 5: Meanwhile, use a hand skimmer to skim off any foam that floats to the surface. Try not to remove any of the spices while you’re skimming foam.

Step 6: After 15 minutes, add your ground eggshells. This is your clarifying agent. Do not skip this step. Mix your eggshells in nice and well so it will stick to the bad things in your mead and leach them out.

Step 7: Once every five minutes, skim the eggshells and newly formed foam off the top of the pot. After fifteen minutes and your third skimming, mash up your fruit of choice and dump it in the pot. Give it another good stir then leave it alone for the next half an hour. Go watch a couple YouTube “Best of Eric” compilations.

Step 8: After half an hour, use your hand skimmer to fish out the fruit.

Step 9: Now comes the tricky part. Line a large funnel with two layers of cheesecloth and try your best to pour the mead through it. You want to pour it into another clean, large stockpot with a lid. If you want to avoid an epic and moderately expensive mess, this is a 2-3 person job. Put a lid on your second stockpot and walk away for the next 24 hours.

Step 10: After a day of waiting, it’s time to play with your brew again. Pour out one cup of mead and heat it until the liquid is very warm but not quite scalding.

Step 11: Add your Champagne Yeast and stir until it completely dissolves. Let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Step 12: After 15 minutes, give the mead a really hearty stir. You want to get as much air into it as possible. Spend at least five minutes stirring like crazy.

Step 13: This is about to get really messy. The Vikings of this era didn’t bother with luxuries like fermenters. Instead, they stored the mead pot outside and let it work it’s magic. For the next week, your mead is going to be as violent as the Vikings who drank it. Even with a rock holding your lid in place, you’re going to have a lot of foam frothing out of the bowl and spewing from the sides. They might have harvested this to use in lesser beverages or they might’ve just ignored it and waited for the yeast to simmer down. If you don’t have a yard, you’ll want to line part of your kitchen floor with flattened cardboard boxes in order to soak up some of the mess.

Step 14: Remember the first pot you used to brew your mead? Go clean and sterilize it to the best of your ability. Once it’s clean, line your trusty funnel with a couple layers of cheesecloth and have someone help you pour your mead right back into the first pot. You can stop pouring once you reach the thick, nasty sediment.

Step 15: Put your mead in a cool, dark place and leave it alone. You’ll want to put some flattened cardboard boxes on the ground underneath it to soak up the inevitable messes. In the spirit of authenticity, put a rock on the lid to keep it in place. Try to check once a week to make sure the lid is still in place. Other than that, wait six months.

Step 16: After six months, check to see if it’s drinkable. If so, drink it. If not, try waiting another six months. Somewhere between 6-12 months you should achieve a slightly skunky but certainly alcoholic beverage pretty close to what actual Vikings would drink in 930 CE. Let’s be honest, though. When Erik’s people dreamed of mead fit for the gods, they were actually channeling the stuff you can find for $20 a bottle at Whole Foods. It’s better, cheaper, and less effort. No wonder the Vikings preferred stealing their booze over making it from scratch.

BILL COMPTON (TURNED 1865)

THE MAN

Bill Compton survived the Civil War only to be killed mere miles from home. Little did he know the frightened, hungry soldier he was would someday become the King of Louisiana. All he wanted was to get back home to his wife, put the war behind him, and raise his family in peace. All of that was derailed when Lorena Krasiki decided to keep Bill for herself.

THE CULTURE

The mid 19th century was a transitional time in American drinking habits. Water wasn’t safe enough to drink without boiling it or brewing it. People with leisure time or servants could indulge in coffee or tea. Everyone else made due with beer, cider, or ale. Imagine for a second if you indulged in at least three pints of thick, bready beer every day without ever touching water. Their urine must’ve been the color and thickness of olive oil.

When a man needed to quiet his demons instead of quench his thirst, there was always moonshine. Since you could clean rust off a bayonet with the harsh whiskey of the day, no sane people drank it straight. The bitterest soldiers would ask for a little sugar, a hint of citrus, and some water to dilute their whiskey.

As a respectable southern gentleman, Bill Compton would have had some occasions when he wanted to drink alone with his thoughts and others when he’d be hosting his friends in Bon Temps.

If you’re throwing a party for fellow True Blood fans, try serving them some of Mrs. Compton’s Peach Milk Punch. If you’re kicking back with an episode or two on your own, indulge in the same newfangled Old Fashioned Bill would’ve enjoyed while he was still alive.

THE DRINKS

THE NEWFANGLED OLD FASHIONED

When bars started serving newfangled cocktails at the end of the 19th century, men who wanted the same drink they grew up with would simply ask the bartender to make them an “Old Fashioned Drink.” As new cocktails caught on, that vague designation turned into the drink’s actual name. When Bill Compton was still alive, the then nameless Old Fashioned was still a new and popular cocktail. It was a man’s drink for when times were tough and he needed something stronger than cider, ale or beer. Mix one up and see if you don’t agree there are excellent reasons why this classic cocktail is still popular after over 150 years.

- 2 shots Whiskey
– 1 shot Simple Syrup or 1 tsp Sugar
– 3 dashes Bitters
– Splash of Water or Soda
– 2 Maraschino Cherries
– Lemon Peel
– Orange Wedge

Drop the lemon peel in the bottom of a lowball glass. Muddle it with the bitters and whichever form of sugar you prefer. Whenever you think you’re finish muddling, keep going for a few more moments. You want to eke out the essence of that lemon aroma. Once you’ve crushed the life out of the lemon, add your whiskey and give it a good stir. Top off the glass with your choice of still or bubbly water. Garnish the glass with two maraschino cherries and an orange wedge.

MRS. COMPTON’S PEACH MILK PUNCH

Before the Civil War, a respectable southern gentleman would host his neighbors at least once per season. Bill Compton’s wife would’ve been expected to provide a strong but feminine punch as a contrast to the whiskey and brandy drunk by the men.

- 4 cups Peach Brandy
– 2 cup Hard Cider
– 4 cups Milk
– 1 cup Sugar
– 1 Cinnamon Stick
– 1 cup Crushed Violet Leaves

This would’ve been considered a respectable afternoon punch with servings for 8 people. Look at those ingredients. No matter how much you think you drink, your great-great-grandparents could’ve put you under the table.

Mix everything except ½ cup of the violet leaves together in a large bowl. Give it a good stir then leave the bowl in your fridge for at least two hours (but up to six). Before your party, give the mix one last stir, then strain out any solids – including any milk curdles that may have formed. Mrs. Compton would’ve used cheesecloth or a clean flannel shirt, but you’re welcome to make due with a pair of coffee filters. No one will tell.

Pour the liquids into a fetching punchbowl. Float the remaining violet leaves on the surface of your punch. Serve with a bit of violet and some freshly grated cinnamon topping each glass.

FRANKLIN MOTT  (deceased 1954)

THE MAN Even other vampires agreed Franklin Mott was a couple bottles short of a six pack, but when it came to undead investigations, he was one of the best. Fifty years of practice left him very good at finding anyone’s secrets. However, quality didn’t come cheap – especially if you factored in the cost of cleaning up the trail of body parts from all the women he obsessed over.

THE CULTURE The cocktail hour was born in the 1950’s. It wasn’t a specific time of day so much as a laid -back mood. The gloomy war days were over. You could kick back with some friends, do something as silly as playing with a cocktail shaker, and enjoy a good drink with a clear conscience. After the grim days of prohibition and the austere days of World War II, mixing up some cocktails with friends had a kind of innocence to it. For the first time since the late 19th century, new drinks were being invented every day. Popular American books and movies made some of those drinks internationally famous overnight.

THE DRINK  THE VESPER

Franklin Mott, lifelong bad boy and self appointed private eye, wouldn’t have been able to resist the brand new Vesper Cocktail requested by James Bond in Casino Royale. It was the drink of wannabe spies and playboys alike. He no doubt kicked back with one in his noir office, imagining the drink made him as seductive as Bond himself. Franklin Mott also imagined every woman he met wanted to be his vampire bride, so his opinion of himself might have been a little biased. Don’t hold that against this otherwise excellent drink.

- 1 ½ shots Gin (James Bond asked for Gordon’s)
– ½ shot Vodka
– ½ shot Dry White Wine
– 2 drops Bitters
– Pinch Lemon Zest
– Curl of Lemon Peel

Everyone knows James Bond takes his martinis shaken, not stirred. Pour everything but the lemon peel into a martini shaker. Add in a handful of ice. Pound the shaker like you’re a gritty detective pounding the pavement. When it’s time to catch a breath, strain the contents of your shaker into a martini glass. Garnish the glass with a twist of lemon peel. The Vesper is best served with an Ian Fleming novel, a rare steak, and a penchant for needless drama.

GODRIC  (Turned around 10 BCE)

THE MAN While Godric was born in Gaul (modern France and Belgium), he only spent a few years in his homeland before being captured by invading Romans. He grew up a Roman slave during one of the most brutal, tumultuous periods in Roman history. As a boy, he would’ve lived through Julius Caesar’s assassination, the power struggle of the Triumverate, and the civil war between Caesar’s nephew Octavian (the future Emperor Augustus) and Cleopatra’s lover, Mark Antony. By the time the dust settled from the Roman civil war, Godric was turned into a vampire by his brutal owner.

THE CULTURE Despite having access to the best public water system the world had ever seen, smart Romans didn’t drink straight water. It just wasn’t safe. Instead, their everyday drink was 1 part thick, strong, syrupy red wine cut with 4 parts water. Roman wine was considerably sweeter than what we drink today. Imagine a red wine with the same sweetness as a German Riesling. In addition to being sweeter, their wines were astoundingly thicker than what we drink today. They commonly store their wine in pitch or tar lined amphora (ceramic jugs). Before serving, they’d mix the tar into the wine to give it a little extra body. Yes, sometimes it seems like all Roman food was based on a dare. To put the tar-wine mix into perspective, the Roman version of ketchup was made from fermented fish heads left buried in a pit for six months at a time. As a young slave boy in Rome, Godric would’ve had a cup of watered wine with every meal. Serving kids plain water was a good way to give your children crippling diarrhea. As a slave, his master would’ve considered that a bad investment.

THE DRINK GODRIC´S SATURNALIA COCKTAIL

On special occasions, the Romans liked to spice up their wine – literally. They didn’t have what we think of as cocktails, but they did enjoy kicking back in celebration with a cup of strong, spiced, sweetened wine. You can too.

- 1 750 ml bottle of sweet Red Wine
– 1 cup Honey
– 4 chopped Dates
– 1 teaspoon fresh ground Black Pepper
– 1 teaspoon fresh ground Cinnamon
– 1 dried Bay Leaf
– Pinch Saffron

Pour ½ cup of wine into a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Next, add the chopped dates and all the spices. If you can’t afford saffron, don’t worry. A lot of Romans couldn’t afford it, either. They typically just added the rest of the cinnamon stick they’d just grated or whatever sweet spice they had lurking in the kitchen.

Give the wine and spice mixture a good stir then reduce the heat to medium and put a lid on the pot. Let it simmer for about half an hour. This gives the spices time to really leach all their flavor into the wine. When you come back, strain all the solids out of the wine.

Now pour the strained wine back in the saucepan and add the cup of honey. Keep stirring until all the honey is melted. Once you have a viscous, sweet mess, thin it out by adding the rest of your wine. Give it all a hearty stir so the flavors are well blended. Admire the bizarre thickness. It’s like you’ve made alcoholic candy.

You can serve it warm in the winter or let it cool down and serve it chilled in the summer. Most Romans drank it at room temperature, just like everything else in their lives.

After a couple sips, don’t be shy about asking if you can try mixing one part wine with three parts water for a different authentic Roman experience. Their idea of a fun party drink has all the subtlety of a Cadbury creme egg and darn near the same texture. It’s no wonder Godric preferred drinking blood.

TALBOT <3 (Turned 1310)

THE MAN  Talbot grew up a spoiled Greek Byzantine prince. Russell Edgington was already over 2000 years old when he met the handsome man, but something about his charm was utterly irresistible to the old vampire warrior. He turned Talbot, who loyally stayed by his side for the next 700 years. Their love was so strong that when Talbot met the true death, Russell Edgington lost his last tether to sanity.

THE CULTURE  European crusaders nicknamed Constantinople, Winbourg, or “The City of Wine.” As a Greek Byzantine prince, Talbot would’ve grown up drinking the finest, most expensive muscat. Muscat is a sweet white wine which was considerably more labor intensive to make than the commoner’s every red wines. (To make white wine, you have to remove the grape skins before they’re crushed. Imagine doing that by hand.) Therefore, commoners might only taste it at their own weddings, but a wealthy prince like Talbot would’ve taken it for granted as an everyday sipping drink. Byzantium’s location at the crossroads between Europe, the Middle East and Asia would’ve given Talbot’s family access to an incredible diversity of expensive spices. As a spoiled young prince, he would’ve taken this luxury for granted.

THE DRINK TALBOT´S MORNING MUSCAT

If you’re in the mood for a sweet taste of a lost, decadent world, enjoy a glass of this Byzantine breakfast drink. If you need an excuse to drink first thing in the morning, tell yourself it’s an ancient version of a mimosa.

- 1 cup Muscat wine
– ¼ cup very warm Water
– 1 tablespoon Orange Flower Water
– 1 teaspoon Honey
– small pinch Saffron

Instruct your minions to soak the saffron in the very warm (but not scalding) water for 15 minutes while you’re having your kohl eyeliner applied. Once the saffron is suitably leached of color and flavor, they can remove the strands and add the honey to the water. If you’re feeling generous, let them take the diluted strands home to season their own food. If not, have the spent saffron mixed in with your cat’s breakfast.

Once the saffron and honey are well blended, they should add the orange flower water. The mix alone should smell good enough to lick off a man’s neck. Add the aromatic mix to a cup of sweet white muscat wine.

Serve the wine with a refreshing morning selection of cheeses, olives, pitted dates, and shirtless athletes.

NAN FLANAGAN (Turned 1194)

THE WOMAN Nan Flanagan had a lifelong love of politics. She climbed her way up the ranks of the vampire Authority until she was given the ability to crown kings and queens. She could grant power to monarchs and sheriffs or just as easily order their executions. Nan used this power to become one of the biggest driving forces behind the Great Revelation. In the century before vampires came out of the coffin, her political influence extended into the mortal world. She met with both presidents Roosevelt, First Lady Hillary Clinton, and a number of other influential human figures who she saw capable of furthering her goals.

THE CULTURE Nan Flanagan would’ve been one of the oldest vampires who ever enjoyed a good stiff drink. Back in Russell Edgington, Godrick, and Erik’s youth, fortified wine was the strongest beverage west of the Himalayan Mountains. Nan was born just in time to taste some of the first whisky in Ireland. The Chinese may have discovered the art of distilling alcohol back when Russell Edgington was alive, but Europeans didn’t figure it out until the same century when Nan Flanagan was born. The new technology revolutionized the way Irish people drank. Whisky wasn’t a substitute for bread. Instead, Irish Whisky was considered a bastion of efficiency and an example of modernity in action. People in the 12th century weren’t anywhere near as afraid of change as folks like to think today. They were constantly exposed to amazing new things coming from the Middle East, where those weirdos bathed every week, and distant China, where it was thought powerful magicians created the nearly supernatural wonders of silk and porcelain. It was taken for granted you’d find something new and mysterious at every market day. Within a year or two you’d wonder how you ever lived without it. While the new Irish Whisky would certainly get you drunk, the amazing substance was also considered highly medicinal. It could calm a cough, clean a wound, and help you sleep. Oh, it could also get you good and properly drunk. If you’re always the person at your office who has to smooth over other people’s messes, whip up a glass of Nan Flannagan’s Night Whisky to calm your nerves. Life could be worse. At least you’re not spending your weekend trying to put a good spin on a vampire ripping out a newscaster’s spine on national television. It’s a hard act to follow in the ongoing quest for better ratings.

THE DRINK NAN FLANNAGAN´S NIGHT WHISKY

- 1 cup of last night’s Hard Cider
– 1 shot Irish whiskey
– 1 Mint Leaf
– ½ tsp Honey

In 12th century Ireland, whisky was considered a good way to refresh leftover cider. If it got you drunk enough, you wouldn’t notice the cider’s staleness or any fruit flies drowned on the surface of your drink. Improvements in hygiene are one of the best things about eternal life. You get to make this with a fresh bottle of Woodchuck. Nan would’ve used the dubiously chunky liquid left all night in a wooden mug.

Degenerate modern drinkers with no respect for the suffering of their ancestors should start by crushing a mint leaf in the bottom of a highball glass. Top it off with your Irish Whisky and continue crushing the mint leaf like you’re crushing the spirit of an unruly underling. Once you’re bored of that, pour in some flat, uncarbonated hard cider (a bottle of Woodchuck or Strongbow left open for a couple hours will do fine.) Serve it briskly iced in the summer. In winter, heat it to the temperature of warm blood and serve it in a commemorative glass along with a petition for support of the Vampire Rights Amendment.

SOPHIE-ANNE LECLERQ (Turned in the early 1500’s)

THE WOMAN Before she was turned over five hundred years ago, Sophie-Anne Leclerq went by the far more humble name of Judith. The Queen of Louisiana began life as a humble orphan who was forced into prostitution by the vampire who would later turn her. When angry townspeople staked her maker, she fled to the forest where she found another runaway prostitute named Andre-Paul. She turned him into a vampire and the two traveled together for the next two hundred years.

THE CULTURE When she was still mortal, Sophie-Anne would’ve had a mug of weak ale or hard cider at every meal. The highborn men who rented her, on the other hand, would’ve sampled some of the finest drinks of the day before having their way with her. This subtle champagne punch required expensive ingredients and ridiculous amounts of time to prepare, making it pretty typical of 16th century aristocratic French beverages.

THE DRINK SOPHIE-ANNE’S SUBTLE LEMON

- 2 Lemons
– 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
– 1 Cinnamon stick
– 40 Whole Cloves
– ½ teaspoon Allspice
– ½ teaspoon Mace
– 4 cups Water
– 1 Bottle Champagne

Order a girl for the night. While you’re waiting, tell your servants to prepare you a drink. The drink should be ready in about 3 hours, which happens to be long enough to get the girl cleaned up and ready for your attentions. Convenient, that.

Down in the kitchen, the cook should start by studding one lemon with 12 of the whole cloves. Put the lemon in a shallow pan and bake it at 300F for the next two hours.

Meanwhile, they should peel or zest the remaining lemon. Juice the zested lemon, then mix the peel, juice and sugar in a bowl.

While one lemon is roasting and the other is soaking, put your cinnamon stick, remaining cloves, allspice, mace, and water into a sauce pan. Let it boil merrily for the next hour, or until the water is reduced by half.

After an hour, pour your lemon mix into your spice water and give it a good stir. Keep it boiling for about five minutes. Your sugar should entirely melt into the water.

Remember the clove spiked lemon lurking in your oven? After it has roasted for two hours, toss it in the hot, spicy water mix. Try to get the lemon completely submerged. Now put some cheesecloth over the top and let it cool down to room temperature. About two and a half hours should’ve passed by now. If the girl is ready to be presented, strain the liquid from the baked lemon and other solids. Pour the result into a decanter, top it off with the bottle of wine, and send her upstairs prepared to please your master.

LORENA KRASIKI (Turned 1759)

THE WOMAN  It’s hard to believe someone as bloody- minded as Lorena Krasiki was once a sweet girl looking forward to life as a nun. Lorena’s human mother was an unmarried lady in waiting for the Empress of Austria. The Empress thought joining a convent would give the girl a respectable future as well as help provide cosmic balance for her conception in sin. The night before Lorena was supposed to take her vows, a vampire decided the pretty woman looked both tasty and useful. She made her way out of Austria and over to America where she could prey on soldiers. The Revolutionary War, the Mexican-American War and eventually the Civil War made it easy for her to feed on soldiers who would never be missed. Bill Compton was only miles from home when he became one of a long line of soldiers who survived the war only to fall prey to Lorena.

THE CULTURE Cocktails as we know them didn’t exist during the mid 18th century. Instead, Americans drank hard cider, beer, or ale. Depending on where they lived, some Europeans would also drink wine. No one dared drink water. That said, people still liked to make a fancy beverage for a special occasion. That usually meant some kind of punch featuring a lot of citrus and some imported spices. Sometimes, though, people craved the creamy deliciousness that only comes from milk. Thus the Syllabub was born.  The wine and whipped cream concoction fell out of favor with the invention of ice cream. That’s a shame, because it’s a deliciously decadent excuse to mix your drinking and dessert.

THE DRINKS  BLOODY RED SYLLABUB

If you’re going to seduce a battle hardened soldier who spent the last few months eating nothing but hard tack and possum, be careful before serving him a fine Syllabub. He may be so overwhelmed he collapses from a heart attack because he thinks the very gates of heaven have opened up and freed him from this suffering. Try giving him a little rough brown bread first to ease him into the spirit of things.

- 4 cups Cream
– 3 cups Wine
– 2 cups Sugar
– 2 Lemons or Limes
– 1 sprig Rosemary

To make historic Syllabub, start by mixing your wine, sugar, and citrus. A white wine Syllabub would normally be made with lemon juice while a red wine Syllabub would be mixed with lime or orange.

The texture of a fully frothed red wine Syllabub bears a striking resemblance to a freshly staked vampire. Pour your heavy cream into your sugared wine and citrus mix. In the 18th century, a household servant would’ve spent hours with a whisk properly beating the cream into an edible froth. Today, lazy degenerates can pour everything into a bowl and attack it with a hand mixer set to medium. After a mere ten minutes the Syllabub will transform into a striking red whipped cream.

Layer the mix into glasses with a wide bulb on top. Guinness pint glasses or ice cream float glasses are a good modern substitute. Real Syllabub glasses had a spout at the bottom so you could pour off the drink while still eating the cream. You can achieve a similar effect by serving yours with a long straw.

Let the Syllabub sit in the fridge for about four hours while fluid separates out from the cream. You should end up with a dark, red-black fluid lurking beneath a cloudy red layer of sweet, fleshy foam. Serve with good finger sandwiches and bad intentions.

LORENA’S BLOODY BRANDY

If you’re in the mood for something simpler, or if you’d rather not sweeten your soldier before you eat him, you can always make a glass of 18th century Bloody Brandy. The bitter tang will prepare him for the disappointment of discovering dying in battle isn’t the worst thing that can happen to a man.

- 1 shot Whiskey
– 1 shot Cherry Brandy
– 1/2 shot Sweet Vermouth
– Juice of 1/2 Blood Orange
– 1 tsp Sugar
– 1 dash Orange Bitters

Blood Oranges mock all the best things about a regular orange. Instead of a tart sweetness, the flesh has a bitter tang. The sunny brightness of the juice is replaced by a dark, bloody color with a pungent aroma. In the 18th century, when style mattered more than taste, blood oranges were a popular way of ruining an otherwise tasty drink.

To make this grisly Revolutionary War era drink, simply dump everything into a highball glass and stir it up with a cinnamon stick. Admire the bloody color before offering it up to your prey. Alternately, you could make the same thing with regular orange juice if you want to do something as lowbrow as enjoying flavor rather than presentation.

The Plasmapolitan

2 oz vodka

1 oz Blood Orange juice

½ oz Triple Sec

Splash of lime juice

Fill a shaker with ice cubes. Add all ingredients. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Cheers!

The real version of Tru Blood is a blood orange carbonated soda that’s pretty damn expensive

The Fangbanger

  • Tru Blood
  • vodka

Make sure that your vodka is ice cold and mix this two parts Tru Blood to one part vodka. Serve over ice.

Death on the Beach

  • Tru Blood
  • Peach Schnapps
  • Pineapple juice
  • vodka

I say build this in a glass with ice using 2 oz of vodka and a 1/2 oz of peach schnapps then do equal parts pineapple juice and Tru Blood to fill your Rocks glass.

Plasmapolitan

  • Tru Blood
  • Citron vodka
  • Cointreau
  • fresh lime juice

This is one that should be served in a martini glass. Fill your glass with ice and set aside. Fill your cocktail shaker half full with ice and add 2 oz Citron, 1/2 oz Cointreau and I’d say the juice from one lime. Shake until cold. Dump the ice from your martini glass and strain your liquid from the shaker. Top with Tru Blood.

I think he just marvels at her level of don’t give a heck and her absolute sense of self. And then he and Ginny partially name their daughter after her (Lily Luna) and that to me is just precious.

http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/06/29/true-blood-jason-sex-dream-eric/

This is Jason’s dream, so Alex kept saying, “Well, you tell me what to do, Ryan. It’s your dream.” And Ryan would go, “Well, I don’t know. What do you want to do?” It started like that until Alex said, “Well, you know, I could f–k him or I could kill him. I’m not sure.” And out of that came the notion that there’s violence in the eroticism. There’s a sense of, What is gonna happen here? It’s not just romantic. It’s dangerous as well.

Barnow: We wanted to make it feel like, “Oh, maybe, in Jason’s subconscious, he’s had feelings for Eric in ways that we’ve never known.” I personally feel like the character Jason Stackhouse has probably always really admired Eric Northman from afar: Like if I was vampire, that’s the kind of vampire I’d be. The writers have always had—I think it was actually really Bucky who’s always had—this idea that Jason was a big fan of James Bond. So I had it in my mind that Eric would be making a martini, because Jason, of course, would fantasize about that. It was not actually discussed whether the martini glasses would be oversized—it was just our genius prop master Tom [Cahill] who came up with these glasses that, in fact, look like they’re as big as Jason’s head. [The reaction to Eric’s long pour] was all Ryan. They were having so much fun with it. We really had a hard time remembering that it was supposed to be a love scene, but they straddled the line perfectly: One minute was just pure burning desire, and the next minute we were all just dying laughing from the things they were doing.

The physicality of it was really those two actors bringing their A game. They came up with all that stuff. They really believed that there would be a sort of masculine component to it because of who they both were. In talking through it all, Eric’s not the kind of character that’s used to having his belt taken off, but Jason’s goin’ for it.

Deutch: My favorite part isn’t in the final cut. When he rips Eric’s belt off, he snapped it like a whip.

Barnow: So then Eric would have to get kinda rough with Jason. But then maybe he was getting rough with him because he was feeling turned on. They just had a real sensibility about how their characters would act in that moment, and it led to this hilarious tackle.

I’d love to take credit, but I can’t. It’s all those guys. They just played it for the truth of what their characters felt, and so they made love. We just had two cameras going on them, and panning and groping—they’re both gorgeous guys and they have amazing bodies, so it’s not that difficult to do that.

UNAUTHORIZED TRUE BLOOD DRINKING GUIDE

COCKTAILS BY KITCHENOVERLORD

image

ERIC NORTHMAN (TURNED AROUND 930 AD)

THE MAN

Vikings were the badasses of the ancient world. They were taller, they were stronger, and they were downright meaner than nearly everyone they met. Even their food was badass. Any civilization that considers rotted shark meat (known as Hakarl) a delicacy is made of people who aren’t afraid of anything.

Eric was the son of a Viking warlord. In the series, his parents were more than ready for him to get married and produce some legitimate grandchildren, but he was having too much fun lingering with ladies and fighting with friends. (Fans of Charlane Harris’s books know he had a very different origin story in print.) Before he could find a wife, a group of werewolves slaughtered his entire family.

This early exposure to the supernatural didn’t stop a mortally wounded Eric from accepting Godric’s offer of eternal life. Being a vampire was better than being dead. Plus, it would give him eternity to carry out his father’s dying wish to avenge their family.

Young Eric would’ve grown up drinking anything he could loot from the more settled people to the south. This meant he would’ve enjoyed plenty of Roman influenced wine, German ale, and Central European hard cider.

Once he came home, though, he would’ve wanted a big mug of good Viking mead.

THE CULTURE

Most Vikings drank what modern brewers call a melomel – basically, alcohol made by adding some berries or fruit to the honey. The berries give yeast a little something extra to eat, ensuring a better quality of fermentation.

Unlike Russell Edgington’s hard cider, which is drinkable in five days, Eric’s Viking mead takes up to a year to fully mature. This was the drink of victory and celebration. His people imagined it was a pale reflection of what their gods drank in Valhalla. Modern Eric might remember it as being nearly as tasty as fairy blood.

THE DRINKS

If you want to drink like a real Viking, break into your neighbor’s house and take whatever they have in the fridge. Help yourself to their jewelry, furniture, and daughters while you’re at it.

If you’re not in the mood to explain your actions before a judge, you could always pick up a bottle of mead from your local liquor store and spice it up at home. It’ll lack the subtle flavor that only comes from sacking your enemies, but it makes up for it by leaving you to enjoy your hangover in your own bed instead of in a jail cell cuddled up with a meth addict.

POISON-FREE SPICED MEAD

- 1 bottle Mead
– ½ inch freshly peeled Ginger Root
– 4 Whole Cloves
– 1 Cinnamon Stick
– ½ teaspoon Ground Allspice
– 1 pint Blackberries or Strawberries
– 2 cups Water

Bring your water to a boil. Gently crush your spices in order to release the aromatic oils within and dump them in the water. Simmer until the water is reduced by half. Meanwhile, throw your berries in a blender with a quarter cup of water and liquefy them. When everything in the blender is as smooth as you can possibly make it, strain the solids from the berry juice.

Once the spice water has reduced down to one cup, strain out the whole spices and mix the remaining liquid with your berry juice. Add your bottle of mead and give everything a hearty stir. You can either warm the mead up and serve it hot on a cold winter night or put the mix in fridge and serve it iced during the summer.

You’ll end up with a sweet, spiced, fruity mead incorporating all the flavors the Vikings would’ve taken for granted without any of the pesky hygiene issues or horrible skunky flavor they also took for granted. Ignore anyone who claims people only drank pure honey mead with no fruit or spices. That stuff was almost impossible for the Vikings to make. Even modern homebrewers use chemical tablets to give the yeast a little something extra to feed from. Instead, enjoy your modernized mead goodness along with other luxuries like indoor plumbing, electricity, and hot Scandinavian men who appear shirtless on television.

ERIC NORTHMAN’S FAIRY BLOOD MEAD

True sticklers for authenticity can try to make a batch of mead as horrifyingly awful as the stuff real Vikings drank 1000 years ago. No one makes it like this anymore – and for good reason. Reading about the process is enough to inspire sacrifices to the wine god of your choice to thank them for modern brewing.

- 16 lbs raw, unpasteurized Honey
– 4-5 gallons purified Spring Water
– 1 pint Blackberries or Strawberries
– 5 oz sliced fresh Ginger Root
– ½ tsp fresh grated Nutmeg
– 1/4 tsp fresh Rosemary
– 6 whole Cloves
– 1 Cinnamon Stick
– 1 tsp ground Eggshells
– 1 tbsp Champagne Yeast

Don’t balk at the quantity of honey. If you’re going to bother making a recipe that takes a full year to mature, you might as well have plenty of it to enjoy when it’s finally ready to drink.

Step 1: Get a ginormous stockpot. Heat your spring water until it boils. You don’t want to use distilled water. The trace minerals in spring water are actually helpful.

Step 2: Once your water is at a good, healthy boil, stir in all the spices. This will get a little messy. Keep stirring.

Step 3: Let your mix boil for about 15 minutes so the flavors will have a chance to get to know one another.

Step 4: Let your water cool for about 20 minutes. You want it to still be hot, but not quite boiling. Now add your honey. Stir until your arms are tired. You want that big sticky mess to completely blend with the hot water and spices.

Step 5: Meanwhile, use a hand skimmer to skim off any foam that floats to the surface. Try not to remove any of the spices while you’re skimming foam.

Step 6: After 15 minutes, add your ground eggshells. This is your clarifying agent. Do not skip this step. Mix your eggshells in nice and well so it will stick to the bad things in your mead and leach them out.

Step 7: Once every five minutes, skim the eggshells and newly formed foam off the top of the pot. After fifteen minutes and your third skimming, mash up your fruit of choice and dump it in the pot. Give it another good stir then leave it alone for the next half an hour. Go watch a couple YouTube “Best of Eric” compilations.

Step 8: After half an hour, use your hand skimmer to fish out the fruit.

Step 9: Now comes the tricky part. Line a large funnel with two layers of cheesecloth and try your best to pour the mead through it. You want to pour it into another clean, large stockpot with a lid. If you want to avoid an epic and moderately expensive mess, this is a 2-3 person job. Put a lid on your second stockpot and walk away for the next 24 hours.

Step 10: After a day of waiting, it’s time to play with your brew again. Pour out one cup of mead and heat it until the liquid is very warm but not quite scalding.

Step 11: Add your Champagne Yeast and stir until it completely dissolves. Let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Step 12: After 15 minutes, give the mead a really hearty stir. You want to get as much air into it as possible. Spend at least five minutes stirring like crazy.

Step 13: This is about to get really messy. The Vikings of this era didn’t bother with luxuries like fermenters. Instead, they stored the mead pot outside and let it work it’s magic. For the next week, your mead is going to be as violent as the Vikings who drank it. Even with a rock holding your lid in place, you’re going to have a lot of foam frothing out of the bowl and spewing from the sides. They might have harvested this to use in lesser beverages or they might’ve just ignored it and waited for the yeast to simmer down. If you don’t have a yard, you’ll want to line part of your kitchen floor with flattened cardboard boxes in order to soak up some of the mess.

Step 14: Remember the first pot you used to brew your mead? Go clean and sterilize it to the best of your ability. Once it’s clean, line your trusty funnel with a couple layers of cheesecloth and have someone help you pour your mead right back into the first pot. You can stop pouring once you reach the thick, nasty sediment.

Step 15: Put your mead in a cool, dark place and leave it alone. You’ll want to put some flattened cardboard boxes on the ground underneath it to soak up the inevitable messes. In the spirit of authenticity, put a rock on the lid to keep it in place. Try to check once a week to make sure the lid is still in place. Other than that, wait six months.

Step 16: After six months, check to see if it’s drinkable. If so, drink it. If not, try waiting another six months. Somewhere between 6-12 months you should achieve a slightly skunky but certainly alcoholic beverage pretty close to what actual Vikings would drink in 930 CE. Let’s be honest, though. When Erik’s people dreamed of mead fit for the gods, they were actually channeling the stuff you can find for $20 a bottle at Whole Foods. It’s better, cheaper, and less effort. No wonder the Vikings preferred stealing their booze over making it from scratch.

BILL COMPTON (TURNED 1865)

THE MAN

Bill Compton survived the Civil War only to be killed mere miles from home. Little did he know the frightened, hungry soldier he was would someday become the King of Louisiana. All he wanted was to get back home to his wife, put the war behind him, and raise his family in peace. All of that was derailed when Lorena Krasiki decided to keep Bill for herself.

THE CULTURE

The mid 19th century was a transitional time in American drinking habits. Water wasn’t safe enough to drink without boiling it or brewing it. People with leisure time or servants could indulge in coffee or tea. Everyone else made due with beer, cider, or ale. Imagine for a second if you indulged in at least three pints of thick, bready beer every day without ever touching water. Their urine must’ve been the color and thickness of olive oil.

When a man needed to quiet his demons instead of quench his thirst, there was always moonshine. Since you could clean rust off a bayonet with the harsh whiskey of the day, no sane people drank it straight. The bitterest soldiers would ask for a little sugar, a hint of citrus, and some water to dilute their whiskey.

As a respectable southern gentleman, Bill Compton would have had some occasions when he wanted to drink alone with his thoughts and others when he’d be hosting his friends in Bon Temps.

If you’re throwing a party for fellow True Blood fans, try serving them some of Mrs. Compton’s Peach Milk Punch. If you’re kicking back with an episode or two on your own, indulge in the same newfangled Old Fashioned Bill would’ve enjoyed while he was still alive.

THE DRINKS

THE NEWFANGLED OLD FASHIONED

When bars started serving newfangled cocktails at the end of the 19th century, men who wanted the same drink they grew up with would simply ask the bartender to make them an “Old Fashioned Drink.” As new cocktails caught on, that vague designation turned into the drink’s actual name. When Bill Compton was still alive, the then nameless Old Fashioned was still a new and popular cocktail. It was a man’s drink for when times were tough and he needed something stronger than cider, ale or beer. Mix one up and see if you don’t agree there are excellent reasons why this classic cocktail is still popular after over 150 years.

- 2 shots Whiskey
– 1 shot Simple Syrup or 1 tsp Sugar
– 3 dashes Bitters
– Splash of Water or Soda
– 2 Maraschino Cherries
– Lemon Peel
– Orange Wedge

Drop the lemon peel in the bottom of a lowball glass. Muddle it with the bitters and whichever form of sugar you prefer. Whenever you think you’re finish muddling, keep going for a few more moments. You want to eke out the essence of that lemon aroma. Once you’ve crushed the life out of the lemon, add your whiskey and give it a good stir. Top off the glass with your choice of still or bubbly water. Garnish the glass with two maraschino cherries and an orange wedge.

MRS. COMPTON’S PEACH MILK PUNCH

Before the Civil War, a respectable southern gentleman would host his neighbors at least once per season. Bill Compton’s wife would’ve been expected to provide a strong but feminine punch as a contrast to the whiskey and brandy drunk by the men.

- 4 cups Peach Brandy
– 2 cup Hard Cider
– 4 cups Milk
– 1 cup Sugar
– 1 Cinnamon Stick
– 1 cup Crushed Violet Leaves

This would’ve been considered a respectable afternoon punch with servings for 8 people. Look at those ingredients. No matter how much you think you drink, your great-great-grandparents could’ve put you under the table.

Mix everything except ½ cup of the violet leaves together in a large bowl. Give it a good stir then leave the bowl in your fridge for at least two hours (but up to six). Before your party, give the mix one last stir, then strain out any solids – including any milk curdles that may have formed. Mrs. Compton would’ve used cheesecloth or a clean flannel shirt, but you’re welcome to make due with a pair of coffee filters. No one will tell.

Pour the liquids into a fetching punchbowl. Float the remaining violet leaves on the surface of your punch. Serve with a bit of violet and some freshly grated cinnamon topping each glass.

FRANKLIN MOTT  (deceased 1954)

THE MAN Even other vampires agreed Franklin Mott was a couple bottles short of a six pack, but when it came to undead investigations, he was one of the best. Fifty years of practice left him very good at finding anyone’s secrets. However, quality didn’t come cheap – especially if you factored in the cost of cleaning up the trail of body parts from all the women he obsessed over.

THE CULTURE The cocktail hour was born in the 1950’s. It wasn’t a specific time of day so much as a laid -back mood. The gloomy war days were over. You could kick back with some friends, do something as silly as playing with a cocktail shaker, and enjoy a good drink with a clear conscience. After the grim days of prohibition and the austere days of World War II, mixing up some cocktails with friends had a kind of innocence to it. For the first time since the late 19th century, new drinks were being invented every day. Popular American books and movies made some of those drinks internationally famous overnight.

THE DRINK  THE VESPER

Franklin Mott, lifelong bad boy and self appointed private eye, wouldn’t have been able to resist the brand new Vesper Cocktail requested by James Bond in Casino Royale. It was the drink of wannabe spies and playboys alike. He no doubt kicked back with one in his noir office, imagining the drink made him as seductive as Bond himself. Franklin Mott also imagined every woman he met wanted to be his vampire bride, so his opinion of himself might have been a little biased. Don’t hold that against this otherwise excellent drink.

- 1 ½ shots Gin (James Bond asked for Gordon’s)
– ½ shot Vodka
– ½ shot Dry White Wine
– 2 drops Bitters
– Pinch Lemon Zest
– Curl of Lemon Peel

Everyone knows James Bond takes his martinis shaken, not stirred. Pour everything but the lemon peel into a martini shaker. Add in a handful of ice. Pound the shaker like you’re a gritty detective pounding the pavement. When it’s time to catch a breath, strain the contents of your shaker into a martini glass. Garnish the glass with a twist of lemon peel. The Vesper is best served with an Ian Fleming novel, a rare steak, and a penchant for needless drama.

GODRIC  (Turned around 10 BCE)

THE MAN While Godric was born in Gaul (modern France and Belgium), he only spent a few years in his homeland before being captured by invading Romans. He grew up a Roman slave during one of the most brutal, tumultuous periods in Roman history. As a boy, he would’ve lived through Julius Caesar’s assassination, the power struggle of the Triumverate, and the civil war between Caesar’s nephew Octavian (the future Emperor Augustus) and Cleopatra’s lover, Mark Antony. By the time the dust settled from the Roman civil war, Godric was turned into a vampire by his brutal owner.

THE CULTURE Despite having access to the best public water system the world had ever seen, smart Romans didn’t drink straight water. It just wasn’t safe. Instead, their everyday drink was 1 part thick, strong, syrupy red wine cut with 4 parts water. Roman wine was considerably sweeter than what we drink today. Imagine a red wine with the same sweetness as a German Riesling. In addition to being sweeter, their wines were astoundingly thicker than what we drink today. They commonly store their wine in pitch or tar lined amphora (ceramic jugs). Before serving, they’d mix the tar into the wine to give it a little extra body. Yes, sometimes it seems like all Roman food was based on a dare. To put the tar-wine mix into perspective, the Roman version of ketchup was made from fermented fish heads left buried in a pit for six months at a time. As a young slave boy in Rome, Godric would’ve had a cup of watered wine with every meal. Serving kids plain water was a good way to give your children crippling diarrhea. As a slave, his master would’ve considered that a bad investment.

THE DRINK GODRIC´S SATURNALIA COCKTAIL

On special occasions, the Romans liked to spice up their wine – literally. They didn’t have what we think of as cocktails, but they did enjoy kicking back in celebration with a cup of strong, spiced, sweetened wine. You can too.

- 1 750 ml bottle of sweet Red Wine
– 1 cup Honey
– 4 chopped Dates
– 1 teaspoon fresh ground Black Pepper
– 1 teaspoon fresh ground Cinnamon
– 1 dried Bay Leaf
– Pinch Saffron

Pour ½ cup of wine into a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Next, add the chopped dates and all the spices. If you can’t afford saffron, don’t worry. A lot of Romans couldn’t afford it, either. They typically just added the rest of the cinnamon stick they’d just grated or whatever sweet spice they had lurking in the kitchen.

Give the wine and spice mixture a good stir then reduce the heat to medium and put a lid on the pot. Let it simmer for about half an hour. This gives the spices time to really leach all their flavor into the wine. When you come back, strain all the solids out of the wine.

Now pour the strained wine back in the saucepan and add the cup of honey. Keep stirring until all the honey is melted. Once you have a viscous, sweet mess, thin it out by adding the rest of your wine. Give it all a hearty stir so the flavors are well blended. Admire the bizarre thickness. It’s like you’ve made alcoholic candy.

You can serve it warm in the winter or let it cool down and serve it chilled in the summer. Most Romans drank it at room temperature, just like everything else in their lives.

After a couple sips, don’t be shy about asking if you can try mixing one part wine with three parts water for a different authentic Roman experience. Their idea of a fun party drink has all the subtlety of a Cadbury creme egg and darn near the same texture. It’s no wonder Godric preferred drinking blood.

TALBOT <3 (Turned 1310)

THE MAN  Talbot grew up a spoiled Greek Byzantine prince. Russell Edgington was already over 2000 years old when he met the handsome man, but something about his charm was utterly irresistible to the old vampire warrior. He turned Talbot, who loyally stayed by his side for the next 700 years. Their love was so strong that when Talbot met the true death, Russell Edgington lost his last tether to sanity.

THE CULTURE  European crusaders nicknamed Constantinople, Winbourg, or “The City of Wine.” As a Greek Byzantine prince, Talbot would’ve grown up drinking the finest, most expensive muscat. Muscat is a sweet white wine which was considerably more labor intensive to make than the commoner’s every red wines. (To make white wine, you have to remove the grape skins before they’re crushed. Imagine doing that by hand.) Therefore, commoners might only taste it at their own weddings, but a wealthy prince like Talbot would’ve taken it for granted as an everyday sipping drink. Byzantium’s location at the crossroads between Europe, the Middle East and Asia would’ve given Talbot’s family access to an incredible diversity of expensive spices. As a spoiled young prince, he would’ve taken this luxury for granted.

THE DRINK TALBOT´S MORNING MUSCAT

If you’re in the mood for a sweet taste of a lost, decadent world, enjoy a glass of this Byzantine breakfast drink. If you need an excuse to drink first thing in the morning, tell yourself it’s an ancient version of a mimosa.

- 1 cup Muscat wine
– ¼ cup very warm Water
– 1 tablespoon Orange Flower Water
– 1 teaspoon Honey
– small pinch Saffron

Instruct your minions to soak the saffron in the very warm (but not scalding) water for 15 minutes while you’re having your kohl eyeliner applied. Once the saffron is suitably leached of color and flavor, they can remove the strands and add the honey to the water. If you’re feeling generous, let them take the diluted strands home to season their own food. If not, have the spent saffron mixed in with your cat’s breakfast.

Once the saffron and honey are well blended, they should add the orange flower water. The mix alone should smell good enough to lick off a man’s neck. Add the aromatic mix to a cup of sweet white muscat wine.

Serve the wine with a refreshing morning selection of cheeses, olives, pitted dates, and shirtless athletes.

NAN FLANAGAN (Turned 1194)

THE WOMAN Nan Flanagan had a lifelong love of politics. She climbed her way up the ranks of the vampire Authority until she was given the ability to crown kings and queens. She could grant power to monarchs and sheriffs or just as easily order their executions. Nan used this power to become one of the biggest driving forces behind the Great Revelation. In the century before vampires came out of the coffin, her political influence extended into the mortal world. She met with both presidents Roosevelt, First Lady Hillary Clinton, and a number of other influential human figures who she saw capable of furthering her goals.

THE CULTURE Nan Flanagan would’ve been one of the oldest vampires who ever enjoyed a good stiff drink. Back in Russell Edgington, Godrick, and Erik’s youth, fortified wine was the strongest beverage west of the Himalayan Mountains. Nan was born just in time to taste some of the first whisky in Ireland. The Chinese may have discovered the art of distilling alcohol back when Russell Edgington was alive, but Europeans didn’t figure it out until the same century when Nan Flanagan was born. The new technology revolutionized the way Irish people drank. Whisky wasn’t a substitute for bread. Instead, Irish Whisky was considered a bastion of efficiency and an example of modernity in action. People in the 12th century weren’t anywhere near as afraid of change as folks like to think today. They were constantly exposed to amazing new things coming from the Middle East, where those weirdos bathed every week, and distant China, where it was thought powerful magicians created the nearly supernatural wonders of silk and porcelain. It was taken for granted you’d find something new and mysterious at every market day. Within a year or two you’d wonder how you ever lived without it. While the new Irish Whisky would certainly get you drunk, the amazing substance was also considered highly medicinal. It could calm a cough, clean a wound, and help you sleep. Oh, it could also get you good and properly drunk. If you’re always the person at your office who has to smooth over other people’s messes, whip up a glass of Nan Flannagan’s Night Whisky to calm your nerves. Life could be worse. At least you’re not spending your weekend trying to put a good spin on a vampire ripping out a newscaster’s spine on national television. It’s a hard act to follow in the ongoing quest for better ratings.

THE DRINK NAN FLANNAGAN´S NIGHT WHISKY

- 1 cup of last night’s Hard Cider
– 1 shot Irish whiskey
– 1 Mint Leaf
– ½ tsp Honey

In 12th century Ireland, whisky was considered a good way to refresh leftover cider. If it got you drunk enough, you wouldn’t notice the cider’s staleness or any fruit flies drowned on the surface of your drink. Improvements in hygiene are one of the best things about eternal life. You get to make this with a fresh bottle of Woodchuck. Nan would’ve used the dubiously chunky liquid left all night in a wooden mug.

Degenerate modern drinkers with no respect for the suffering of their ancestors should start by crushing a mint leaf in the bottom of a highball glass. Top it off with your Irish Whisky and continue crushing the mint leaf like you’re crushing the spirit of an unruly underling. Once you’re bored of that, pour in some flat, uncarbonated hard cider (a bottle of Woodchuck or Strongbow left open for a couple hours will do fine.) Serve it briskly iced in the summer. In winter, heat it to the temperature of warm blood and serve it in a commemorative glass along with a petition for support of the Vampire Rights Amendment.

SOPHIE-ANNE LECLERQ (Turned in the early 1500’s)

THE WOMAN Before she was turned over five hundred years ago, Sophie-Anne Leclerq went by the far more humble name of Judith. The Queen of Louisiana began life as a humble orphan who was forced into prostitution by the vampire who would later turn her. When angry townspeople staked her maker, she fled to the forest where she found another runaway prostitute named Andre-Paul. She turned him into a vampire and the two traveled together for the next two hundred years.

THE CULTURE When she was still mortal, Sophie-Anne would’ve had a mug of weak ale or hard cider at every meal. The highborn men who rented her, on the other hand, would’ve sampled some of the finest drinks of the day before having their way with her. This subtle champagne punch required expensive ingredients and ridiculous amounts of time to prepare, making it pretty typical of 16th century aristocratic French beverages.

THE DRINK SOPHIE-ANNE’S SUBTLE LEMON

- 2 Lemons
– 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
– 1 Cinnamon stick
– 40 Whole Cloves
– ½ teaspoon Allspice
– ½ teaspoon Mace
– 4 cups Water
– 1 Bottle Champagne

Order a girl for the night. While you’re waiting, tell your servants to prepare you a drink. The drink should be ready in about 3 hours, which happens to be long enough to get the girl cleaned up and ready for your attentions. Convenient, that.

Down in the kitchen, the cook should start by studding one lemon with 12 of the whole cloves. Put the lemon in a shallow pan and bake it at 300F for the next two hours.

Meanwhile, they should peel or zest the remaining lemon. Juice the zested lemon, then mix the peel, juice and sugar in a bowl.

While one lemon is roasting and the other is soaking, put your cinnamon stick, remaining cloves, allspice, mace, and water into a sauce pan. Let it boil merrily for the next hour, or until the water is reduced by half.

After an hour, pour your lemon mix into your spice water and give it a good stir. Keep it boiling for about five minutes. Your sugar should entirely melt into the water.

Remember the clove spiked lemon lurking in your oven? After it has roasted for two hours, toss it in the hot, spicy water mix. Try to get the lemon completely submerged. Now put some cheesecloth over the top and let it cool down to room temperature. About two and a half hours should’ve passed by now. If the girl is ready to be presented, strain the liquid from the baked lemon and other solids. Pour the result into a decanter, top it off with the bottle of wine, and send her upstairs prepared to please your master.

LORENA KRASIKI (Turned 1759)

THE WOMAN  It’s hard to believe someone as bloody- minded as Lorena Krasiki was once a sweet girl looking forward to life as a nun. Lorena’s human mother was an unmarried lady in waiting for the Empress of Austria. The Empress thought joining a convent would give the girl a respectable future as well as help provide cosmic balance for her conception in sin. The night before Lorena was supposed to take her vows, a vampire decided the pretty woman looked both tasty and useful. She made her way out of Austria and over to America where she could prey on soldiers. The Revolutionary War, the Mexican-American War and eventually the Civil War made it easy for her to feed on soldiers who would never be missed. Bill Compton was only miles from home when he became one of a long line of soldiers who survived the war only to fall prey to Lorena.

THE CULTURE Cocktails as we know them didn’t exist during the mid 18th century. Instead, Americans drank hard cider, beer, or ale. Depending on where they lived, some Europeans would also drink wine. No one dared drink water. That said, people still liked to make a fancy beverage for a special occasion. That usually meant some kind of punch featuring a lot of citrus and some imported spices. Sometimes, though, people craved the creamy deliciousness that only comes from milk. Thus the Syllabub was born.  The wine and whipped cream concoction fell out of favor with the invention of ice cream. That’s a shame, because it’s a deliciously decadent excuse to mix your drinking and dessert.

THE DRINKS  BLOODY RED SYLLABUB

If you’re going to seduce a battle hardened soldier who spent the last few months eating nothing but hard tack and possum, be careful before serving him a fine Syllabub. He may be so overwhelmed he collapses from a heart attack because he thinks the very gates of heaven have opened up and freed him from this suffering. Try giving him a little rough brown bread first to ease him into the spirit of things.

- 4 cups Cream
– 3 cups Wine
– 2 cups Sugar
– 2 Lemons or Limes
– 1 sprig Rosemary

To make historic Syllabub, start by mixing your wine, sugar, and citrus. A white wine Syllabub would normally be made with lemon juice while a red wine Syllabub would be mixed with lime or orange.

The texture of a fully frothed red wine Syllabub bears a striking resemblance to a freshly staked vampire. Pour your heavy cream into your sugared wine and citrus mix. In the 18th century, a household servant would’ve spent hours with a whisk properly beating the cream into an edible froth. Today, lazy degenerates can pour everything into a bowl and attack it with a hand mixer set to medium. After a mere ten minutes the Syllabub will transform into a striking red whipped cream.

Layer the mix into glasses with a wide bulb on top. Guinness pint glasses or ice cream float glasses are a good modern substitute. Real Syllabub glasses had a spout at the bottom so you could pour off the drink while still eating the cream. You can achieve a similar effect by serving yours with a long straw.

Let the Syllabub sit in the fridge for about four hours while fluid separates out from the cream. You should end up with a dark, red-black fluid lurking beneath a cloudy red layer of sweet, fleshy foam. Serve with good finger sandwiches and bad intentions.

LORENA’S BLOODY BRANDY

If you’re in the mood for something simpler, or if you’d rather not sweeten your soldier before you eat him, you can always make a glass of 18th century Bloody Brandy. The bitter tang will prepare him for the disappointment of discovering dying in battle isn’t the worst thing that can happen to a man.

- 1 shot Whiskey
– 1 shot Cherry Brandy
– 1/2 shot Sweet Vermouth
– Juice of 1/2 Blood Orange
– 1 tsp Sugar
– 1 dash Orange Bitters

Blood Oranges mock all the best things about a regular orange. Instead of a tart sweetness, the flesh has a bitter tang. The sunny brightness of the juice is replaced by a dark, bloody color with a pungent aroma. In the 18th century, when style mattered more than taste, blood oranges were a popular way of ruining an otherwise tasty drink.

To make this grisly Revolutionary War era drink, simply dump everything into a highball glass and stir it up with a cinnamon stick. Admire the bloody color before offering it up to your prey. Alternately, you could make the same thing with regular orange juice if you want to do something as lowbrow as enjoying flavor rather than presentation.

  • vodka

Make sure that your vodka is ice cold and mix this two parts Tru Blood to one part vodka. Serve over ice.

Death on the Beach

  • Tru Blood
  • Peach Schnapps

My QUESTION, why is there PEACH SCHNAPPS in a DARYL Cocktail 
WALKERS BLOOD COCKTAIL 

1 oz Bourbon   /    1 oz Blackberry Brandy  /   Coca-Cola (to fill) / 1 splash Grenadine
Directions: Mix the ingredients in a highball glass half full of ICE. See the video below for more details.  First: Blackberry Brandy  then Bourbon (for the southern feel), then top it off with Coke, Lastly add a Layer of Grenadine on top of the drink (just a quick twist on the edge of the glass, draw a circle basically) so that a nice cherry flavour is flowing down
 RICKTATORSHIP 
1 part triple sec
1 part Bacardi 151
1 part vodka
1 part gin
1 part tequila
1 part bourbon
1 part scotch beer stout
Mix the 5 whites and 2 whiskies in a big mug glass or whatever you want to drink out of. Top off the left over space with half beer and half stout. Let me just warn you this is a rough and tough drink, you will end up on your ass. This is not a drink for someone who doesn’t have a mutant liver.

I love how Harry just genuinely likes Luna. Not in a romantic way, but in a “I don’t know how or why but I get you and you get me and I’d be honored to call you a friend and if anyone messes with you I’ll wallop them” kind of a way. I think he just marvels at her level of don’t give a heck and her absolute sense of self. And then he and Ginny partially name their daughter after her (Lily Luna) and that to me is just precious.

You have to at least ship their friendship.

#Viktor was obviously deeply in love with her #just remember the fact that he took her to prom #even knowing that he could’ve chosen any other girl #remember how he forgot about everyone and danced with her all night #remember how he looked at her while saying ‘write to me, please’ #remember how, a few years later #on Fleur’s wedding #he danced with her one more time #probably being conscient that her heart already belonged to Ron #this is why I love Viktor Krum so much #he just enjoyed being with Hermione #and didn’t care about the future #mostly, because she wasn’t going to be a part of his.

reblogging because krum is extremely underrated

And thank you everyone for loving Krum without hating Ron

i don’t want to live in a world where i’m not allowed to enjoy both Shakespeare and Ke$ha.

Wake up in the mornin’ feel quite Hamlet-y

Grab my skull, I’m out the door, I’m gonna act real shitty

Before I leave, overthink if I’m on the right track

Cuz if I kill my uncle tonight, he ain’t comin back

I’m talkin trying to kill my foe foe
But instead kill everyone I know know
9 deaths in a row row

http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/06/29/true-blood-jason-sex-dream-eric/

This is Jason’s dream, so Alex kept saying, “Well, you tell me what to do, Ryan. It’s your dream.” And Ryan would go, “Well, I don’t know. What do you want to do?” It started like that until Alex said, “Well, you know, I could f–k him or I could kill him. I’m not sure.” And out of that came the notion that there’s violence in the eroticism. There’s a sense of, What is gonna happen here? It’s not just romantic. It’s dangerous as well.

Barnow: We wanted to make it feel like, “Oh, maybe, in Jason’s subconscious, he’s had feelings for Eric in ways that we’ve never known.” I personally feel like the character Jason Stackhouse has probably always really admired Eric Northman from afar: Like if I was vampire, that’s the kind of vampire I’d be. The writers have always had—I think it was actually really Bucky who’s always had—this idea that Jason was a big fan of James Bond. So I had it in my mind that Eric would be making a martini, because Jason, of course, would fantasize about that. It was not actually discussed whether the martini glasses would be oversized—it was just our genius prop master Tom [Cahill] who came up with these glasses that, in fact, look like they’re as big as Jason’s head. [The reaction to Eric’s long pour] was all Ryan. They were having so much fun with it. We really had a hard time remembering that it was supposed to be a love scene, but they straddled the line perfectly: One minute was just pure burning desire, and the next minute we were all just dying laughing from the things they were doing.

The physicality of it was really those two actors bringing their A game. They came up with all that stuff. They really believed that there would be a sort of masculine component to it because of who they both were. In talking through it all, Eric’s not the kind of character that’s used to having his belt taken off, but Jason’s goin’ for it.

Deutch: My favorite part isn’t in the final cut. When he rips Eric’s belt off, he snapped it like a whip.

Barnow: So then Eric would have to get kinda rough with Jason. But then maybe he was getting rough with him because he was feeling turned on. They just had a real sensibility about how their characters would act in that moment, and it led to this hilarious tackle.

I’d love to take credit, but I can’t. It’s all those guys. They just played it for the truth of what their characters felt, and so they made love. We just had two cameras going on them, and panning and groping—they’re both gorgeous guys and they have amazing bodies, so it’s not that difficult to do that.
