Shark Week 2018: Drinking Game and Shark Attack Shot

Shark Week is one of my favorite ways to cure the mid-summer slump. Every year, Discovery Channel adds new shows, like Shaq Week and Guy Fieri’s Feeding Frenzy, but still airs favorites like Air Jaws and Alien Sharks. If you haven’t gotten in on the action yet, you still have time! Tonight, starting at 7PM ET/PT, Catch Cash Cab “Shark Week Edition”, Megalodon: Fact vs. Fiction, Bloodline: Spawn of Jaws, and Great White Shark Babies. Tomorrow at 9, Return of the Mega Shark and Sharks Gone Wild. And Sunday at 9, catch Naked and Afraid with Sharks. Plus, all day through Sunday, catch shark shows from previous seasons of Shark week.

What better way to celebrate the final days of this year’s Shark Week, than with a drinking game? And just because Shark Week makes me feel a little “extra”, I also created a specialty shot for the occasion– the Shark Attack.

For extra goodies, check out some previous Shark Week posts: Jen P’s 5 Must-Watch Shark Movies, Geek Chic: Shark Week, and .Shark Attack Margarita and Other Shark Week Goodies from the Interwebz.

Shark Week 2018 Drinking Game:

Every time there’s chum in the water, take a shot, then rub your hands together and lick your lips like a hungry cartoon villain.

If a person or animal gets bit, run a lap around the room, then chug a beer, crush the can on your head and shout “A sacrifice was made this day!”

Every time a pregnant shark, juvenile shark, or baby shark is mentioned, get up and sing the Baby Shark Song. For extra points, do the dance. No drinks this time; it’s a bad influence on the kids.

Every time a shark bites a camera, shout, “Those are some big chompers!” and take a shot.

Every time a shark jumps out of the water, jump up and scream, “HOLY SHARK!” and take a shot.

If you hear the Jaws music, start sipping and keep on until the music finishes.

Someone goes in a cage, do a shot and shake your head at that fool.

Someone swims freely with sharks, finish your drink and pray.

Watching Shaq Week? Take a shot every time Shaq says, “I’m not doing that,” sweats profusely, or dances.

Do a shot every time you see a preview for The Meg.


Shark attack shot




1 oz Coconut Rum

Splash Blue Curacao

Splash of grenadine



Mix the coconut rum and curacao first. Let settle, then slowly drip the grenadine in for the blood effect. Enjoy!




Please drink responsibly, and enjoy the rest of Shark Week 2018!

Later, Geeks!
