Shark Week is Almost Over: Make These "Killer" Cocktails at Home
Shark Week, Discovery Channel's celebration of all things that make us never, ever want to go into the ocean, continues this weekend.
In all honesty, sharks are actually mysterious, beautiful predators that deserve our awe and protection.In the middle of all the biting commentary on shark attacks, Shark Week plays a major role in helping educate us about sharks and give us valuable information on how to help them.
Still, that doesn't make us want to go snorkeling. We'd much rather fix a few cocktails at our landlocked home and watch them on television.
Here are some shark-related recipes, courtesy of Lucid Absinthe; CAMUS Cognac; Sobieski Vodka; Ungava Gin; and William Wolf Pecan Bourbon. Make them at home and get hammer (head)'d.
