Oh now I remember, silly me I was about to give you the recipe of an hallucination inducing drug, but that is not important anyway, I remember now Miss Karma had come with an “interesting” proposal, of making a beverage capable of satiating you, I had just received some advice from my business partner Gragas about brewing and decided to take a shoot.
So anyway the secret of that particular brew is not that it imitates blood, since what you enjoy from your victim is not the blood but the live that you suck from them.
At first I proposed to use unicorn blood since it conserves his qualities and life force for a long time after it is extracted, but Miss Karma insisted that not fussy, cute or mythical creatures should be used, she would had to said that before drugged and killed an unicorn for nothing!.... Anyway finally found a way to do it:
You know how small microorganisms are required to brew the alcohol? I had only to use some hextec to mutate some of them to convert alcohol into Carbohydrates so the other could convert the carbohydrates in to alcohol, and presto you have a perfectly healthy colony of microorganisms ready to give their life force to you!
That is what gives that brew his characteristically purple coloration, it was mostly dumb luck that the resulting microorganisms give the brew a quite delicious flavor, like a good black rum.
I have a like to it so whenever you like I can sell you some, let’s say 15gp the barrel?
I’m deeply sorry that I can’t teach you how to brew it. but the colony population must be monitored during every step of the brew, if there is a minimal misbalance it can become a powerful potion capable of killing a blue whale with only 3 drops (trust me I have tested it).
((no problem I have been quite bussy with the battlecast threat))
