Happy Valentines Day to everyone here at the True Blood wiki! Hopefully you have someone in your life with whom the day was spent well.
While I usually write a long entry, I'll try to keep this one short.
The following Valentines Day recipe comes courtesy of the now defunct splendora.com, and was originally linked from TruBeverage.com:
Valentine's Day Cocktail We here at HQ are batty for the HBO series True Blood. Well, imagine our excitement when our very own case of Tru Blood arrived in the post! That moment could have only been made better if Alexander Skarsgard fed us the potion himself. Since that didn't happen we opted for the next best thing: to mix it with liquor. Here's a Valentine's cocktail we're calling the Splendora Tru Blood.
In a shaker with ice add:
- 1.5 oz Vodka (or 3 oz for extra bite)
- 1/2 bottle of Tru Blood
- Splash of champagne
Stir well with a cocktail spoon (or the finger of your latest snack). Strain into a chalice of your choice and garnish with fig. Just remember to be in bed before the sun comes up!

Also in the realm of Valentine's Day, Wikia's Lifestyle Hub] has a tournament going where users can vote on their favorite couples through time. Bill and Sookie are on the list but are unfortunately losing to Kermit and Miss Piggy. Well, actually they're in fourth place out of a list of four. It's very sad.
