Calling all mixologist masterminds! Like you, we’re thirsty for another taste of True Blood. In anticipation of the season 4 premiere, we’re giving away 10 copies of True Blood: The Complete Third Season on Blu-ray. Full contest rules after the jump.
Your task is simple: Tell us what you’ll be serving at your TB viewing party this Sunday. As Bill slurps on Sookie what will you be sipping? Will it be a Stackhouse Sling? Perhaps a Tru Bloody Mary or a Pam-mimosa? Post in the comments below the signature cocktail you’ve created based on your favorite moment from the last three seasons. Make sure to be specific — include ingredients, garnish, preparation, and the scene that inspired your drink of choice. Remember: You must enter your e-mail address when you submit your recipe so we can contact you if you’ve won. (Don’t worry, your address won’t be displayed publicly or used later for any reason.)
To get your creative juices flowing, EW has whipped up its own signature cocktail, the Sookie Soother:
– 2 bunches of fresh mint
– 4 cups tea-flavored vodka
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1 cup water
Preparation: Prepare simple syrup by bringing water and sugar to a boil in a sauce pan, stirring constantly until dissolved. Set simple syrup aside to cool. After syrup cools, pour vodka into a bowl along with syrup. Muddle 5-10 mint leaves in each glass before adding ice and ladling in vodka-syrup mixture. Garnish with fresh mint leaves. Makes 10-12 servings.
Inspired by: In sultry Bon Temps, Sookie always has a glass of sweet iced tea on hand. Last season, the temperature reached a fever pitch when Eric — fearing he was going to meet his true death — planted one on Sookie for the first time (outside of her V-tinged dreams, that is).
Now it’s your turn, Blood brothers and sisters. Give us your boozy best!
