Gummy Shark Ice Cubes
2 (12 oz) can Seltzer
1 cup Lemonade
½ cup White Rum
¼ cup Blue Curacao

Gummy Shark Ice Cubes - In an ice cube tray (or more) fill each well half Blue Curacao and half seltzer and place a gummy shark in each one and freeze overnight.

Rimming Glass – Salt
Rim a glass with salt and include some ice then set to the side. In a shaker with ice, combine the ingredients and shake well, then strain into the rimmed glass and garnish with strawberries and mint leaves and lime slices (if you think it needs the lime slice).
Tequila Sunrise (original source)
4 oz Orange Juice
2 oz Tequila
½ - 1 oz Grenadine
Garnish – Maraschino Cherries, Orange Slices, Umbrellas (necessary)
Combine the tequila and orange juice into a large glass with ice. Then slowly add the grenadine so it sinks to the bottom and DO NOT STIR (the drink needs to resemble some form of a sunrise). Garnish with maraschino cherries, orange slices and bring it to a completion with a paper umbrella.
All, if not most, of these drink ingredients can be found at your local liquor store. Keep in mind that the summer heat is unforgiving and you need to make sure to drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and cool. Townsquare Media and KIXS 108 do not condone underage drinking and encourage you to drink responsibly. Have a safe and fun weekend!
