Tom Colicchio Promotes HBO's True Blood With a Vampire Drink

Tom Colicchio Makes a Bloody Good Drink

While I rang in the season premiere of True Blood with a sublime red velvet cookie sandwich, Tom Colicchio was inspiring fans of the show to get in the kitchen as well.

Top Chef's head judge is no newbie to plugging drinks — witness his Diet Coke commercial spot. But on this segment of "The Perspective" with Victoria Davis, he goes above and beyond, making a beverage for fictitious, blood-sucking friends: "I have a few friends that are vampires, and I've had this issue.

He doesn't make the drink for his "fictitious, blood-sucking friends". After all, they are drinking blood.
