To me, summer means lots of watermelon munching, A/C cranking, and…
True Blood enjoying!
True Blood is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Sexy vampires, fairies, witches, warlocks, werewolves, shifters, etc. etc. etc. (and now, SPOILER ALERT!, fairy-vamps?) I’m not enamored with this season quite yet, but I can’t seem to pull myself away from the goings-on in Bon Temps.
I thought Sookie would like to make some lemonade for her vampire pals (though, it seems like she is OVER vampires at the moment). I bet adding a little Tru Blood would make a refreshing (and satisfying!) vamp drink. But, since I bet real Tru Blood would be super icky to us humans, I substituted sparkling pomegranate juice. The result is sweet, tart, and delicious!
- 1¾ cup white sugar
- 1 cup hot water
- 2¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 6 cups cold water
- 1 bottle of Trader Joe’s Sparkling Pomegranate Juice (aka Tru Blood!)
- In a gallon pitcher, mix together the hot water and sugar until all sugar is dissolved. Add the lemon juice and water. Refrigerate.
- For each glass, fill up the glass about ¼ of the way up with the pomegranate juice. Fill up the rest of the glass with lemonade. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.
