Show your fang affiliation by stocking your fridge with Tru Blood ($16). Based on the synthetic blood drink favored by the more civilized vampires of HBO's True Blood, this carbonated real-world version packs a slightly sweet, slightly tart blood orange flavor and a rich red color that will have guests wondering if you're drinking the real thing.
Ever wonder where root beer came from? Well, it used to be root tea, an alcoholic drink the settlers picked up from the Native Americans — but prohibition ended all of that, so it was drained of its alcohol and rechristened "root beer." Now you can get a taste of the original, organic, and very alcoholic tea with Root ($39). Made from birch bark, black tea, spearmint, sugar cane, and other natural ingredients, every sip is like a step back in time.
Whether you're underage, weening yourself off the hard stuff, or just want a non-alcoholic DIY beverage option, you can make your own with the Root Beer Making Kit ($13). This all-in-one kit includes everything you need to brew up four gallons of the sudsy stuff, including 2 oz of root beer extract, special brewing yeast, a funnel, project guide, blank labels, and a storage container.
