It’s Shark Week this week on Discovery. It’s a fantastic way to learn about shark safety, the marine habitats, and the conservation of our marine life. That doesn’t mean it has to be boring. You can jazz up with a good Shark Week drinking game or a Blue Shark Attack Cocktail. Blue Shark Attack Cocktail contains rum, pineapple juice, blue curacao, and gummy blue sharks.

About Blue Sharks

Blue sharks are found in very deep waters. The blue sharks prefer cooler water. Blue sharks are often found in sub tropical areas. However, It isn’t very often you will see one unless you are diving in the depths of the ocean.

Blue Sharks can grow up to 12.5 feet long. Atlantic blue sharks migrate across the Atlantic Ocean each year, following the warm Gulf Stream waters on their eastward trip.

They travel a circuit from the Caribbean Sea, along the coast of the USA, east to Europe, south to the African coast, and back to the Caribbean.

Blue sharks are considered to be dangerous. Therefore it is documented that blue Sharks are involved in numerous attacks on people every year. Hence some of the attacks have resulted in death due to the force of the jaws and teeth that this species of shark has.

Shark Week

We like to share some drinks while watching Shark Week. Mostly, we like to talk about the facts. We also discussed whether or not you would get in a glass box with a Great White Shark looking directly at you.

I don’t think that I would classify that as something fun to do. How about you? Discovery’s #SharkWeek is very important to the education of marine life.  

I love to watch it to always learn more about what is in the depths of the ocean. What is your favorite part of Shark Week? Do you watch it all week long? I would love to know in the comments below!

  1. Love this idea for a drink! Sharks are amazing creatures that I love learning about from a safe place, not right in front of one in the ocean. A glass box in front of one is bad enough, but have you seen the people who go into a metal cage (with bars not solid sides) and go face to face with sharks? Yeah there is no way this girl would do that lol!!

    1. If you have a large punch bowl you can do 1 large bottle of pineapple juice then add 2 to 3 cups blue curacao until it’s the good blue color then stir in 1 to 1 1/2 cups silver rum depending on how strong you want the drink to be.

  2. Jenne, I bet I’d love the taste of that drink, *if* I could get past the color. Blue drinks have never appealed to me, but I *am* kind of “themey,” so with the right theme like this … especially on my second one! 😀

  3. This looks awesome! The ingredients are my favorites.

    Oh, and I’d get in the water with a great white, actually going to Guadalupe Island next year. I’ll be in a cage though and not that super sketchy clear box. We did Cape Town a few years ago and my husband and a few others had a close call but everyone came home without puncture wounds and with all limbs intact 🙂

    1. OH that sounds so amazing! I would do it with smaller sharks but Great Whites I think I would flip out and say NO. Did you get pictures?
