IT'S A BARK ATTACK!

We've put a spin on the popular New Orleans SHARK ATTACK Cocktail...

Made with a hefty pour of Tito's Vodka for Dog People (BTW one of our BIG FISH Sponsors), gin, rum, tequila and sour mix – no grenadine needed with our cup!


It's slightly sweet, slightly sour, and definitely powerful!

A few will most likely get you feeling like you're floating in the ocean.

But you're gonna need a bigger SINK!
