Drink Blood

If you are a vampire. Otherwise, drink my Bloody Bellini.

Tonight was the Season 2 premiere of True Blood on HBO. In honor of the return of Sookie and Bill (and everyone else, finally!) I decided to create a drink for the occasion. Technically my drink shouldn't be called a Bellini as a Bellini is made with fresh peach juice. My drink is made with fresh blood orange juice so I guess it should technically be called a Mortal Mimosa or Macabre Mimosa or...something. But I like Bloody Bellini. So there.

Bloody Bellini

Fresh Blood Orange Juice
Angostura Bitters

1. Pour equal parts blood orange juice and Prosecco into a champagne flute. Place the flute on a plate or serving platter. Add a dash of bitters. Drizzle a teaspoon of grenadine around the edge of the glass so that is drizzles into and down the side of the glass, pooling at the bottom.
Serve immediately. many as you want to make.
