Sometimes you want a drink with a little bite. Sometimes you want one with a big one. Like this Shark Attack.
This drink is most definitely a “sippin’ drink”. It’s the kind of drink that’s perfect for mommas who’ve just got home from running their kids to the umpteenth soccer game or cheerleading practice and want to sit and unwind in the back yard listening to Jimmy Buffett and enjoying the warm summer air. Wow, that sounds really good doesn’t it? I know what I’m doing later.
1/4 cup maraschino cherry
1/4 cup lemon Slices
1/4 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup triple sec
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup amber rum (overproof if you’ve got it)
lots of ice
In a pitcher, add all the ingredients and stir to combine. Garnish with maraschino cherries. Pour into rocks glasses over ice, garnish with a cherry and serve.
Pleasantville Note: The ice is really very important with this drink, unless of course you want your Shark Attack to turn you into a zombie, then go with no ice.
I happen to know some mom’s in London who will LOVE this drink. The London Southend United Sharks Mom’s. You’re seeing the tie in here, right? Sharks soccer club, Sharks moms…..Shark Attack. Anyhoo, these moms are working tirelessly to have their girls soccer team win the BMO Soccer Team of the Week contest. Cheers ladies.
