Undead Drinks for the New Year

A while back, I asked folks to come up with their favorite drinks based on Vampire: The Masquerade and Vampire: The Requiem. I got a lot of responses. I decided to compile some of my favorites for people to help them with their New Year’s celebrations. End your year on an undead note!

(Note: I haven’t tested any of those, so I have no idea if they’re any good, but I did try to weed out obviously dangerous recipes.)
