Since one of our favorite movies opened in June of 1975 we thought we’d spotlight the perfect drink to kick off the summer – the Shark Bite to honor Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. There are several drinking scenes in the movie including the memorable scene in the Orca wherein our heroes compare scars and Quint recounts the horror of the Indianapolis. But we think the Shark Attack covers the gist of the entire movie quite nicely and allows for an homage to Bruce.

As it turns out you can find many variations of the Shark Bite, but we defer to the recipe on 3st of the Month because it sounds particularly tasty.
