Hmm . . . whether to blog about the Greek debt rollover or alcohol and television? . . . Alcohol and television win for the moment. Who knew that a Google search for “red cocktails” would turn up dozens of hits, including an entire Food & Wine slide show, that includes the Sherry Cocktail (above right?)?
Why, you might ask, would someone need such information? HEL-LO! The True Blood season premiere was Sunday night, which required red, and festive, food and drink. I made the above-mentioned sherry cocktail and a very tasty Raspberry Smash from Bon Appétit. Photos of both are below.
A few thoughts on the show, sufficiently lacking in spoilers that I am not putting it below the fold. First, Jason’s biceps are even larger this season than last. And he’s not any smarter. Jason fans appear pleased.
Second, shape shifters are just boring. Even fairies are more interesting than shape shifters.
