Finally it is the most joyous week of the year… Shark Week of course! If you’re like me, that’s all that is acceptable to watch this week so might as well mix up a cocktail and get all your senses involved.
Great White Bite
1 shot rum (great with dark rum also!)
2 shots orange juice
Splash of sour mix
Splash of grenadine
Blend all ingredients except the grenadine in a blender with ice. Pour in your glass and stir in the grenadine. Add as much or as little as you like to get the bloody, shark bite effect going!
Add to the fun with a Shark Week drinking game. Take a sip every time one of these glorious things happen:
Reference the infamous Megalodon or Jaws
Talk about Great White sharks (big sip of your drink for this one!)
Show “never before seen” footage
“Chumming” or shark bait makes an appearance
A person gets in that metal “shark proof” box
Mention a shark attack to a human
Reenact said attacks
Show gnarly shark attack scars
Display really scary shark teeth
Shark jumps out of the water
A seal or some other helpless animal is devoured
When you hear commentators with weird accents
When said commentator tries to be witty
The list could literally go on and on. You’ll clearly need a few pitchers of your cocktail to play!
If you haven’t gotten into Shark Week yet, blend a couple of these babies together, have some fun with the drinking game and you’ll be into it before you know it. For those of you who countdown to this week, you’ll probably down the whole blender of Great White Bite as you stay glued to the TV.
Happy Shark Week y’all!
