Entourage® Fan Favorite Quote Contest!

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Entourage fans have spoken and now the votes are in: the fourth fan favorite quote comes from none other than Drama. When Adam Davies tells Drama that it might be tough to get him back in the game, Drama, never lacking self-confidence, makes a bold proclamation by saying “I am the f***ing game, pal.”  Now with a lead role in the hit TV series Five Towns Drama might just be right about that.

What’s Your Go-To Shape?

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Sam Merlotte has struggled to keep his shapeshifting ability secret, but during Sunday’s episode of True Blood® he had no choice but to expose his gift to some of our favorite Bon Temps residents, including Sookie’s brother Jason.  While Sam’s go-to shape is a collie, he learned from Daphne that he can actually take on the shape of any animal as long as he has imprinted on it.

With Sam exposed it’s time to add shapeshifters to the growing list of supernatural entities (including vampires, maenads and telepaths) that populate the small town of Bon Temps.  We’ve seen Sam turn into a dog, owl and fly – with one episode left, what shape will he shift into next?

Tru BloodTM Drink Cocktails – As Seen on Slashfood!

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009


When Sara Bonisteel of Slashfood, AOL’s food blog, received a bottle of Tru Blood, she went straight to Giuseppe Gonzalez, bartender at Dutch Kills in Long Island City, to see what sinfully delicious drinks he could make with the newly announced blood orange beverage.

To pay tribute to True BloodTM’s southern roots, Giuseppe shook up some of New Orleans’ classic cocktails with a twist of Tru Blood.  Check out Giuseppe’s recipes below and stock up on the Tru Blood drink so you can try these cocktails out yourself when the drink releases at the beginning of September.

The Ramos Gin Fizz (Vampire Style)
1 1/2 ounce gin
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/2 ounce lemon juice
4 sugarcubes
4 dashes orange blossom water
1 ounce heavy cream
1 egg white

Place those ingredients in a cocktail shaker and thrash vigorously for about 10 minutes to emulsify the mixture. Let it settle in a highball glass then add Tru Blood. The cream should rise to the top. Drizzle some Peychaud’s bitters on top for a trail of faux blood.

French 75 (Vampire Style)
1 part gin
1/2 lemon
1/2 sugar
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters

Mix and add to a Champagne flute. Top with equal parts Champagne and Tru Blood.
