It's a sip that Sookie Stackhouse would love—Bill and Eric, not so much.

The countdown to the new season of HBO's True Blood has been a long one for some of us: the waiting, the wondering…will Sookie make peace with her fairy kind? Will she un-rescind Bill's invitation into her Louisiana home? Will Eric rest easy now that his family has been avenged (it only took him, like, 400 years or something). And Tara…poor Tara. What new befangéd disaster is going to befall Tara?

We'll have to wait and see, we suppose, along with everyone else. But as we sink our teeth into a new season, here's the only cocktail any self-respecting True Blood fan should be caught, er, dead sipping while the show is on every week. The recipe comes straight out of New Orleans—the most gothic Southern city of them all—and it makes enough to feed a crowd of thirsty humans. Vampires will have to make do with some other libation.

For a spicy kick, substitute pepper-flavored vodka for the plain vodka.
