There is nothing wrong with a couple of sharks so long as they are in a cocktail! The Blue Shark cocktail is true to its name, and is sure to give you Shark Week and Jaws vibes whenever you have it. Another beach favourite, the Blue Shark is often served at beach bars and summer parties, but this potent concoction is good to have anytime, anywhere for a shark sized bite to the brain.
Less of a classic and more of a kitsch, fun cocktail, the Blue Shark may not have a rich and meaningful history behind it, but this party drink never fails to set the mood at any event. There are many shark-themed cocktails out there, but the Blue Shark is definitely the pioneer of them all. Strong, delicious, and enjoyable as hell, this drink is varied here and there by different bartender styles but the main three ingredients usually remain the same.
Just like the animal, they are named for, Blue Shark cocktails pack a lethal punch, typically comprising of strong liqueurs such as Vodka and Tequila. The characteristic Mediterranean blue hues imbued by delicious Blue Curacao are what give the Blue Shark cocktail its representative appearance. A single one of these cocktails is enough to get you going, and the best part is, the gummy sharks don’t bite.
