What Ingredients Do I Need
How to Make This Shark Drink
Full steps and directions are in the printable recipe card below. This is a quick walk-through on how to make this fun drink recipe.
Start by adding ice into the cup. Then add a shark gummy, and then more ice. The ice is going to help hold the gummy sharks in place.
Feel free to add as many gummies as you want to the drink. I recommend using a clear glass, so you can see the gummies.
Now, add in some of the blue Gatorade, then top with some of the 7Up. Add a straw and serve up this delicious drink.
How to Make This Into A Shark Attack Cocktail
Make the drink as directed, then add an ounce of Malibu rum or vodka. Or if you want a stronger drink, then go right ahead and add a bit extra.Print

- After you have your drink ready, add in some red Gatorade or even Rose’s Grenadine to add a splash of red to the drink to look like blood.

- Any lemon-lime flavored drink works great for this drink.
- If you don’t want to use soda, reach for Bubly water for carbonation.
Here are a few common questions that you might find being asked when making this shark bite drink recipe.
where to find shark gummies?
I have found the shark gummies at Dollar General, grocery stores like Walmart, Target, etc. Or, if you want, shop on Amazon and have them delivered right to your doorstep. I find the blue shark gummies add a fun twist to this drink. Plus, the kids will love getting to nibble on the gummies as they drink down the drink.
How to prevent a drink from getting watered down from ice melting?
If you are worried about your drink getting watered down from ice, I have a few tips to help you! These are helpful tips you can use when you make any drink. Make sure to refrigerate and chill the ingredients in the drink. That way, it is cold to start. It will melt the ice a lot slower. Buy re-usable ice cubes with an outer layer, so they don’t melt and release water into your drink the way classic ice does. Then wash and freeze the cubes and re-use them. Freeze some of the Gatorade into ice cubes. So as the Gatorade ice cubes melt, they will not water down the drink, and it will just add more flavor.
can I use something besides gatorade for drink?
Torani has a Blue Curacao flavored syrup you can use. You will add just a splash of this into the drink and then top it off with the lemon-lime soda. It is a concentrated syrup that will add sweetness and blue color to the drink. This will work great for this shark attack drink.
