Shark Week Cocktails!

That's right, friends.  It's the most wonderful time of the year.  Shark Week.  Not unlike any other day in my life, I find reasons during Shark Week to justify drinking special drinks, buying myself various shark presents, and watching shark shows.  Peep some of these awesome drink recipes I made in honor of the most amazing week of the year.
 Fins Up
·         1 part Skinnygirl® Bare Naked Vodka
·         1 part DeKuyper® Blueberry Schnapps
·         3 parts club soda

Preparation: Shake first two ingredients with ice, pour into a glass and top with club soda.
I should mention here that I bought these shark fin ice cube trays and they were an epic fail.  I really had high hopes for them.  It was probably user error though, and I have all week (aka all year) to try again.    

 Shark Attack
·         1 ½ parts Skinnygirl® Bare Naked Vodka
·         2 parts cranberry juice
·         ½ part fresh lime juice
·         ½ part DeKuyper® Triple Sec
·         Lime wheel for garnish

Preparation: Pour all ingredients over ice and garnish with a lime wheel.
This recipe was the favorite of the group!  Simple, delicious, and refreshing.  

If you look reallyyyyyy closely at this one, you can sort of see the shark fin ice cube poking out of the top.  It was my best attempt!  

Shark Bait
·         1 part Skinnygirl® Tangerine Vodka
·         ½ part grenadine
·         1 part orange juice
·         Splash of pineapple juice
·         Orange slice for garnish

Preparation: Shake all ingredients with ice, pour into a glass and garnish with an orange slice.
For picture purposes, I didn't stir these so that you'd see the cute sunrise effect.  But before drinking you should ABSOLUTELY stir or shake the ingredients together.  Otherwise you'll be sipping on straight alcohol at the top and sugary grenadine at the bottom!
