Zombies seem to be the of-the-minute trend this Halloween, but one should not forget about the vampires. After all – the moment you stop thinking about them is the one that they come after you! Savvy mixologists making spooky drinks for their Halloween party know that Tru Blood is the must have ingredient (besides frozen grapes to chill the drinks – aka “witches eyeballs”). The best part about the Tru Blood drinks, which are made with Belvedere Vodka – is that they are SO easy. You’ll probably be too busy dealing with trick-or-treaters (aka your drunk friends) to put much effort into your bar that night, so shake up a few of these and focus on the more important things. Like your sexy cat costume. Recipes below.
