Shark Week requires SHARK BITE PUNCH! Make this punch for kids or adults with shark ice cubes! This is such a fun way to celebrate shark week.
You can make this with just soda for the kids or (shhh) add some vodka for the adults. This drink is basically a Shirley Temple…with SHARKS!
Shark week is a TV event that happens every summer – a week full of shows related to all things sharks. I used to think it was a silly thing but then we happened to watch a few episodes one year and I was hooked.
Men and women swimming with sharks, mapping where sharks go and how big they get; it makes you really realize how powerful these animals are. Also, you get to see how adventurous (or stupid?) grown adults are because they’re right there swimming with a shark and they must be nuts.
Shark week is an event that must be prepared for – like any good holiday. How better to prepare for a holiday than with food?
Making Shark Bite Punch is the perfect way to celebrate shark week with a drink (or a cocktail).
Sprite or 7-Up is mixed with cherry ice cubes that are filled with gummy sharks – this “bloody” Shirley Temple is perfect for kids…and for adults when you add vodka.
I’ve always wanted to make a Dirty Shirley Cocktail…and this is it!
I got so excited when I realized shark week was coming that I ordered a bag of gummy sharks off amazon. You can find these sharks in most candy stores, however, or buy them online.
It’s a breeze to make this shark bite punch – just a few ingredients and your kids will LOVE it.
What is a Shirley Temple?
A Shirley Temple is a favorite drink to kids all over: 7-Up or Sprite with cherry juice and cherries.
Basically, it’s a Shirley Temple without the cherries. I hate maraschino cherry juice because it gets everywhere, so instead I made cherry ice cubes out of Kool-Aid. Add a gummy shark to the ice cubes and freeze.
Once you’re ready to serve, fill a glass with shark bite ice cubes and fill with your choice of soda. Watch the drink become “bloody” as the ice cubes melt.
