If you are a fan of True Blood, then there’s a new book out you might want to take a look at.
Drink up, y’all! Bon temps means “good times,” which in Renard Parish also means nerve-calmin’ drinks and finger-lickin’ victuals. Featuring forty-five themed recipes inspired by the namesake HBO original series, and geared toward the ravenous fans who love to gather for weekly watch parties, True Blood Drinks & Bites brings the good times of Bon Temps home. From often-ordered refreshments at Merlotte’s and Fangtasia to the Fortenberrys’ family recipes for the best finger foods around, here are mixed drinks for teetotalers and boozehounds alike plus bites for all appetites.
In True Blood Drinks & Bites, these delicious “in-world” apps and libations mix and mingle with quotes and commentary from the characters themselves that is accompanied by original unpublished photography from seasons 1-5. Sip and nibble as the drama goes down onscreen, or quench your cravings in between episodes—how about Scorn Fritters and Cheese Stakes washed down with an ice-cold Spirit Lifter? Or a Maenad a Trois paired with Skinwalkers and Vamp Repellent? It’s a bayou buffet no Trubie can resist!
