Blood cocktails

Vampires of Rockdoors [and Terra in general] don't have to hide. They do - however - need to follow species-specific laws and rules and one of them states: 
"Blood should be consumed only when it is purchased from the locations that offer it as product for sale. Should a being of vampiric or other blood-consuming kind be caught drinking blood from someone attacked on the streets - be it human, other being or animal - they are to be warned on first accident but if they don't seize this behaviour - arrested, trialed and sentenced to up to seven years in jail"
That said - drinking only one kind of blood over and over again can be from boring to annoying hence blood cocktails were created. 
There are 3 main kinds of cocktails:
  1. Pure human blood + alcohol: /not to be confused with "pures" - those mean just plain blood/ - in menus they would go with a human name + color. For example: Blue Michelle is a name for a blood type B cocktail, mixed with vodka or rum and extra sugar.
  2. "Spiced" human - non-alcoholic: they are human blood only mixed with what's considered spices but not with alcohol.
  3. "light" or "vegan" or "slims" - those are made with just animal blood and spices and alcohol //or just with spices/alcohol//

Spices can be:
  • exotic fruits - juiced or sliced;
  • different herbs or food-spices /for example cumin, coriander and a ground red hot pepper in type A- blood do make a classic "Hellhound"/
  • blood from small mammals, fish or birds

Another type of blood cocktails are the "Energy bombs": human or animal blood [from a young creature - in their teen-ages], mixed with coffee and finely ground dark chocolate, boiled and served in a 50mg mini-mug and then consumed while still steaming. One of those can wake a bear mid-winter and have it stay awake 24/7 for 6 months. Very few are the brave vampires to have them regularly.

Mechanics & Inner Workings

The mugs/glasses/bottles they are sold in are enchanted /sometimes on the spot/ with a anti-staining spell;

The blood comes from either living healthy volunteers or from people and beings who passed away but agreed their blood to be used in this manner [usually they are presented with a small list - the same one that lets them be an organ donor should they want to - and they mark it or have someone else mark for them if they're unable to.] and from animals that are living & healthy or died and the one who cares for them /or who's found them - if wild/ wants to have them used for blood/turned to food.

 

The blood is mixed with other kinds of blood, spices, ingredients, chilled or diluted, but always and before anything else - mixed with 1-2 crushed magic crystals that keep it from coagulating.
