Toast to the Arrival of Shark Week with These Two Terrifying Cocktails

July 31, 2014

Shark week begins August 10, 2014 and to to celebrate we're sharing two terrifying cocktail recipes to sip on during the event.  The Shark Attack combines blood orange liqueur with tequila and grapefruit juice for a lighter take on a tequila sunrise.  The other cocktail, dangerous waters, is a fruity drink made with lemon vodka and a mixture of muddled summer berries.  If you are planning a shark watching party, check out our recipes for shark themed foods to serve to your friends and family.
