What do you need to make a Shark Bite drink?
This Shark Bite drink is perfect for Shark Week or definitely for a Shark or Ocean-themed birthday party. The little test tube and plastic shark are a wonderfully fun party favor to take home.
- Strawberry Syrup
- Blue Kool-Aid such as Blue Raspberry or Tropical Punch
- Plastic Sharks
- 10 mL test tubes
- 16-18 oz clear plastic cups
How do you make a Shark Bite drink?
Start by preparing the test tubes. The test tubes and sharks I linked above perfectly fit together. It took me a few tries to find test tubes small enough to fit in a shark and sharks big enough to hold a test tube inside their bodies.
Start by filling each test tube with strawberry syrup. Leave about an inch at the top of each test tube, so you can easily close it with the stopper.
If you’re preparing this for a party, you can make the test tubes of strawberry syrup up well before the party.
Place a test tube in the mouth of each shark.
When you’re ready to serve the drinks, fill each cup with ice, but make sure to leave room that you can fit a shark in each cup.
Place a shark in each cup, and then fill each drink with blue Kool-Aid.
Have each child remove the shark from their drink, pull the stopper from the test tube, and pour the “blood” from the shark into their drink.
Then, enjoy the drinks!
How can I turn this Shark Bite Drink into an alcoholic drink?
If you want to change it up to an adult drink, you can make your favorite blue curacao cocktail and just add the shark with strawberry syrup or grenadine just like in this drink.
