True Blood Premiere Party: The Morning After

By Jacob Klein on Jun 27, 2011 to HBO Watch Originals

It’s finally here. After months of longing and anticipation, True Blood is finally back on the air as of last night.  Maybe you threw a fantastic premiere party, maybe you attended one or maybe you simply enjoyed the show alone from the comfort of your couch, whichever way you chose to experience the season premiere of True Blood, we hope you had a fantastic night.  The premiere party was in full swing last night with special guests Bill Compton, Eric Northman and Sookie Stackhouse in attendance along with a few ‘fang bangers’ to please our vampire friends.    The Tru Blood was flowing and an air of anticipation was swirling.  Here are a few photos from last night’s festivities but feel free to link to your own party shots in the comments below!

Afterthoughts – If you read our True Blood premiere party guide you’re aware of some of the basics that go in to throwing a HBO premiere bash.  It can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be.  We were lucky enough to have a few amazing friends who also happen to be huge fans of True Blood!   Costumes certainly aren’t required but I don’t think I’ll be able to enjoy another True Blood party again without Eric Northman sipping on a bottle of Tru Blood.

The official Tru Blood beverage was surprisingly refreshing.  I’d compare the taste to something like Ruby Red Squirt but a bit more exotic.  It’s flavor is not surprisingly ‘Blood Orange’ so if you dig that flavor in a carbonated beverage then you’ll love Tru Blood.  In my opinion, the drink works a lot better as a mixer than a standalone drink though several of our party goers drank entire bottles of the stuff!  The beverage comes with a menu featuring vodka and tequila based drink options with clever names like Plasmopolitain and The Shapeshifter all of which are quite tasty!  We had ordered the Party Kit so we had tons of Tru Blood napkins, and even drink menus to pass around.  Even if you only grab a 4-pack you’ll be able to make a ton of mixed drinks as each bottle was good for about four cocktails.  We can’t recommend these drinks enough for your next True Blood party!

We hope everyone had a fun and safe evening last night!  We’ll be back with more party guides, reviews and HBO news as soon as we recover from the one too many Fangbangers we consumed last night.
