**This recipe is to help calm the cravings that I get when I am needing
a good sanguine feed. No more. No less. It is NOT a substitute for the
living energy contained within the blood**
1 large can of tomato juice [something
close to 64oz size? ~Sphynx]
1 half gallon of OJ with LOTS of pulp (I will explain this later)
2 larger bottles of red food color
1 small bottle of blue food color
12 crushed iron tablets *yes, it is a lot of iron, however with the
mix you only drink a bit each day*
[25mg pills, so 12 x 25 = 300mg for the
18 crushed base amino tablets (such as L-lysine or the like)
Salt to taste
Remember!! Do not over salt, real blood has a minor
This is best mixed in a gallon container (not a milk jug
like one of those plastic tea pitchers)
1st Drain half of the liquid from the OJ leaving half of the liquid
with ALL (or as much of) the pulp. The reason for using the pulp is
to help simulate the thickness of blood, also acts kind of like a clotting
agent, which adds to the illusion.
Mix in all the other ingredients, EXCEPT for the blue food color. This
will be added last. Allow the ingredients to sit for at least an hour
in the refrigerator. Remove the pseudo blood and begin to add drops
of the blue food color to darken the bright red to a more blood-like
crimson (or to a color YOU perceive is blood-like)
This too adds
to the illusion and aids the sanguinary vampire in curbing his craving.
Return to the refrigerator for another hour. This allows the iron tablets
and the base amino to more readily move through your concoction giving
the pseudo blood that coppery tang that real blood has.
I tend to place mine in a coffee cup and stick it in the microwave
to warm it to blood temperature (98 degrees). This is usually about
10-15 seconds depending on the microwave you are using.
**NOTE: No more than 6-8 ounces of this should be drunk in a day, there
is a high iron content and this will alleviate any over indulgences
of iron in your system**
I then pour mine into a goblet and drink, allowing the imagery to aid
in curbing even my most damnable cravings.

Assuming a large can of tomato juice is 64
ounces, that plus half of the half gallon of OJ (roughly 32oz by the
time you pour about half out) makes about 96 oz.
A 6 ounce serviing of a roughly 96 ounce batch, as described above,
will contain about 18-19 mg of iron. The tolerable
upper limit of daily iron according to the NIH's Office of Dietary
Supplements is 45mg. Certainly well within normal limits.
