How to Make This Shark Drink

The complete list of ingredients, quantities, and instructions can be found in the printable recipe card below.

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.

Helpful Tips and Variations To Recipe

  • Grab a larger pitcher to make this into a shark punch to serve up a crowd.
  • You can make this drink in advance, just don’t add in the ice, or gummies until right before serving.
  • 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.
  • Use sugar-free or regular Gatorade or Powerade.
  • Any lemon-lime flavored drink works great for this drink.
  • If you don’t want to use soda, reach for Bubly water for carbonation.

Recipe FAQs

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.

  1. I love the variations of the recipe. I think I will have it with lemon-lime flavored drinks

  2. 5 stars
    looks very fancy and fun for summer! Not too many ingredients so gather it’s easy to make. overall super nice recipe

  3. This is the cutest thing that I’ve seen today! My cousin (who isn’t a kid anymore) and I used to celebrate Shake Week when we were teens – we’d just hangout and watch Discovery Chanel. A few times our parents made shark-related treats so we could properly “celebrate.” We’re in our 30’s now and we live thousand of miles away – I can’t wait to tell her about the Shark Bite Drink! We might even Zoom and recreate this while on videocall. Thank you for this jaw-some reminder, it’s truly nostalgic!

      Polly, I love this. Thank you so much for sharing your childhood story with me, well, all of us. Yes, zoom and recreate. You both have a great time. Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Looks cool and I like the last part of it “Q&A”. It definitely helps answer questions. Going to try it. Thank you for sharing!!

  5. That’s such a great idea and good you can adjust it for kids and adults. My son would probably try this especially as it has the gummy shark.
