Shark Attack

I’ve always had an almost-weird obsession with sharks. Spending many days of my childhood summers at the Jersey Shore, I never stepped into the salty Atlantic without keeping one eye on the lookout for a bobbing dorsal fin. And every year when Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week rolls around, I’m hooked to the TV for hours. That’s why when I learned Houlihan’s was offering a special Shark Week Cocktail last year, I immediately scheduled a happy hour. The drink is everything you’d dream a special Shark Week cocktail would be: an ocean-blue creation packed with equal parts fruit, liquor and fizz, all served in a tall glass adorned with an equally tall toy shark. I called Houlihan’s to see if they’re bringing back the tasty tropical tincture this year, and I’m glad to report the Shark Week Blue Long Island will be up for grabs this month. This time- sensitive special comes with vodka, rum, gin, Blue Curacao, Sprite, sour mix and a souvenir shark, and it can all be yours for only $6.75. What a super-affordable way to come face-to-face with one of the ocean’s largest threats. Just act quickly when it comes on the menu June 26—they’re only available while supplies last.
