Friggin’ Pigs in a Blanket and True Death: Recipes from True Blood Drinks & Bites

For the ravenous fanbase of HBO’s smash hit series, True Blood Drinks & Bites  presents 45 quick and easy recipes for themed gatherings and weekly watch parties, all inspired by the series’ most notorious vampires and victims.  From the creator of True Blood  and his writing team, these are deliciously “in-world” appetizers, cocktails, and non-alcoholic drinks to enjoy as the drama goes down in Bon Temps.  Think Scorn Fritters and Hot Dates, washed down with an ice-cold Spirit Lifter.

Entertaining and packed with novelty—including quotes and commentary from the characters themselves, plus original unpublished photography from seasons 1 through 5—True Blood Drinks & Bites brings home a fun and tantalizing taste of the onscreen action. true blood_cover Reprinted with permission from True Blood Drinks & Bites, copyright (c) 2013.  Published by Chronicle Books.  Support your local bookstore, or buy the book through our affiliate link at Amazon.com.
