Jen and I were actually just talking last night about getting or making replica bottles of Tru Blood to perhaps fill with wine and consume during our weekly True Blood gatherings with the friends (never said I wasn't a geek) and in fact i've been asked in the past for any tips or advice on how to go about such things, so I was pleased to get a press release e-mail from HBO earlier today notifying me that we are finally gonna be able to get our hands on our very own replica bottles of the synthetic plasma that is a favorite to (some) vampires, Tru Blood! Here's all the details on this carbonated beverage along with some True Blood inspired drink recipes!
Meticulously crafted, the Tru Blood Drink is an exact replica of the bottle design as seen on True Blood. The 14oz glass Tru Blood bottle is stained in a rich red, with raised Tru Blood English lettering and matching Japanese Kanji.
This blood orange flavored soda is slightly tart, lightly sweet and subtly carbonated. Designed to taste great while matching the appearance of Bill’s favorite drink, the drink pours like a regular soda, but with the standing appearance in a glass is stormy and mysterious.
The Fangbanger - Tru Blood, Vodka
Death on the Beach - Tru Blood, Peach Schnapps, Pineapple Juice, Vodka
Plasmapolitan - Tru Blood, Citron, Cointreau, Fresh Lime Juice
You can purchase either a four pack, for $16, or a 24 pack for $96. The drinks will ship on September 8th, but you can pre-order them today to not only make sure that you get them before they sell out but also to make sure you get them before everyone else. If you pre-order one of the packs, you will also get 15% off any other True Blood item in the HBO store.
Pretty cool, eh? Unfortunately these will be shipped out a few days after the season 2 finale airs so they wont be able to be enjoyed while watching this season on the screen but hey, better late than never right?
