If you have a sweet tooth, do a 50/50 mix of Tru Blood with Sprite. If you prefer to dull the sweetness, then do the same but with club soda. Be creative and mix to your taste.
Remember, this beverage has a slight fizz to it (carbonation), so you'll need a fizzy mixer to help it maintain its integrity.
You might also want to keep you first empty bottle so that you can poor half of the subsequent bottle into the first bottle and store your mixes.
Also tastes great with freshly-oxygenated arterial blood at 98.6F. (Just kidding.)
Hope this helps.
As for the drink itself, I actually don't find it sweet tasting. I think it tastes a lot like Orange Crush, but a little bit less fizzy and more complex. I wish it was more carbonated. At first I didn't care much for the taste, but the more I drink, the more and more I like it.
To get your money's worth, though, just wash them out gently and refill with some Orange Crush or Sprite and a few drops of red food coloring if you want.
I didn't want to spend the $25 USD for the four pack I saw at Hot Topic, especially if I didn't know if I was going to like it, so thankfully Saturday Matinee sells the single bottles for about $5 USD a pop.
Tru Blood actually tastes better warm, or at least room temp, which I found out after popping my bottle in the fridge. And it's not something you can chug. It is very much something I could only sip a bit at a time. It tastes more like a REALLY sweet fruit punch, but I couldn't find any hint of blood orange in it.
If you're not a fan of overly really sweet drinks, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you DO like really sweet stuff, then go for it.
I will say, though, that every fan of the True Blood series should try the drink at least ONCE. Build your own opinion from tasting it yourself. If you're not willing to drop $25 for a 4 pack of it, you can sometimes find the single bottles at Borders, the larger Barnes and Nobles stores, or Saturday Matinee.
I would also recommend that people who are diabetic, STAY AWAY. Sugar cane is the second ingredient in Tru Blood.

I really enjoy this product. It is very delicious and goes well with alcohol. It is a little fizzy/carbonated and looks cool if you blend it in with drinks. Read morePublished on February 6, 2013 by Cody Cook
