Summertime Ocean Water Punch


It's Movie Monday again and I'm am excited to share this month's summer themed movie and recipe with y'all- it's Jaws
This horror-thriller movie was released in 1975 and still to this day scares the beejesus out of me!

Since we just hosted a farewell pool party for the girls before we movie next month I though it would be fitting to make an Ocean Water Punch for their shindig and for Movie Monday. This 2 ingredient drink is pretty, tasty, and refreshing too. The perfect summer drink for everyone! I even added gummy sharks to the glasses for a fun touch!

Scroll down for my drink recipe and all the other Jaws inspired crafts and recipes this month.
 

Ingredients:

Makes 2 gallons
  • 1 2 liter Sprite soda
  • 3 quart size bottles of blue colored {different shades} juice drinks {Gatorade, Powerade, Koolaid, etc}
  • gummy fruit sharks, optional

Directions:

  1. Working in batches, add juice to a couple ice cube trays and freeze.
  2. Add ice cubes to freezer safe baggies and then repeat with remaining different color juice until all the ice cubes are made and separated into 3 different baggies. 
  3. When you are ready to serve, add your ice in layers to your drink container.
  4. I add the dark color first and end with the lightest, like the ocean.
  5. Pour the entire bottle of Sprite over the ice cubes.
  6. To serve, pour into clear glasses and add gummy fruit sharks on top.

For this recipe you will need 3 different blue shades of juice. 
I used Gatorade but any brand and flavor you like will work.
