A Fang-tastic Cocktail for your True Blood Premiere Party

This Sunday we’re raising a glass and toasting to the final season of True Blood. 

That’s right: it’s time for one last trip to Bon Temps—a town infested with supernatural stuff including shape-shifters, maenads, gentlemanly vampires, werewolves and a half-fairy mind-reading waitress with a penchant for getting into trouble (a.k.a. Sookie Stackhouse).

Instant Tip!

Fangs out, True Blood fans: @InStyle found your signature drink for the season premiere!

In honor of the final season of our favorite guilty pleasure, we found a blood red cocktail that’s hotter than a Friday night at Merlotte’s.

Mix up a batch in anticipation of the season premiere and sip while you savor every last frame of a shirtless Eric Northman.

Say Cheese! Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep Are All Smiles at the Premiere of Their Film, August: Osage County in L.A.

Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep were all smiles at the L.A. premiere of their new film, August: Osage County and they sure had reason to. Not only are the two leading ladies nominated for a Golden Globe (Streep for Best Actress and Roberts for Best Supporting Actress), but they also received both SAG and Critics’ Choice Movie Awards nods, including Best Ensemble nominations for the film’s cast featuring a roster of Hollywood’s biggest names—including Ewan McGregor, Dermot Mulroney, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Julianne Nicholson, and more.

Back in September, InStyle caught up with Nicholson during the Toronto International Film Festival, where she spoke candidly about working with the big cast. “Everybody is so lovely and funny and it was that way immediately,” she said. “It probably started with Julia and her openness and excitement about doing the movie.” The cast brings Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play onto the big screen, which is based on a trio of sisters (Roberts, Lewis, and Nicholson), who reunite at their Oklahoma home with their dysfunctional mother (Streep) due to a family crisis, and what follows is a touching, comedic story about family. The film opens in theaters everywhere on December 25th.
