This Sunday we’re raising a glass and toasting to the final season of True Blood. 

That’s right: it’s time for one last trip to Bon Temps—a town infested with supernatural stuff including shape-shifters, maenads, gentlemanly vampires, werewolves and a half-fairy mind-reading waitress with a penchant for getting into trouble (a.k.a. Sookie Stackhouse).

In honor of the final season of our favorite guilty pleasure, we found a blood red cocktail that’s hotter than a Friday night at Merlotte’s.

Mix up a batch in anticipation of the season premiere and sip while you savor every last frame of a shirtless Eric Northman.
