There’s no way we can get through the Season 4 finale of True Blood without a drink in our hand. And by “a drink” we obviously mean a huge pint of Tru Blood.

Check out these bloody good cocktail recipes courtesy of HBO, and head over to the HBO store to pick up all the party supplies you need — including a Fangtasia pint glass, a Merlotte’s shot glass, and of course, a six-pack of Tru Blood!

If you really want to get creative, you can even score a True Blood bar stool so you can mix up these cocktails in style! And don’t forget, you can make all these drinks virgins by nixing the Belvedere.
