So, here is the step by step instructions of the recipe to make this delicious and refreshing drink in full detail along with some added tips.
Step 1: In a blender, or a cocktail shaker, add ice. If you are using a blender make sure you start the blender a couple of times before putting in any other liquid. Make sure you have closed the lid of the blender properly. This is firstly to make sure that the blender is sturdy enough, secondly, because we need the ice to break down a little.
Step 2: After that, pour in the blue PowerAde, and blue curacao in the blender. We do not want to be spilling any liquids. So make sure the lid is properly closed every time you start blending. Blend the ingredients till they mix well.
Step 3: By this time, the blended mixture may seem a little runny. So you can add more ice cubes to thicken the mix. Now blend a little bit more.
Step 4: Now, put the shark gummy candy into the mixture and blend again till they are done. Prepare a glass which you will use to pour the drink in. Add ice cubes and pour the drink into the glass. You can garnish with some lemon zest if you want. It will add a bit of a tang element to the mix. Add a straw and you are done with the mixing. Now you can slurp away and enjoy!
Applebee’S Shark Bowl Recipe
- 4 Cup Ice
- 1 Cup PowerAde
- 3 ounces blue curacao
- 1 shark gummy
- In a blender, combine the ice, PowerAde, and blue curacao.
- Blend thoroughly.
- Add more ice if the mixture is too runny

- For this blue shark cocktail, shark gummies are a must. But there are other candies from shark brand too. You can choose your own if you want to. But this candy has been tried and tested with the mix of drinks in this particular recipe. So, make sure you try out the flavors first to really know which one you want.
- You can add or remove as much ice as you want. But it is recommended to have more ice so you can keep the drink cold for much longer compared to the one where you use lesser ice cubes. There are different types of ice that you can use to your advantage. The recipe uses ice cubes and breaks it down as they blend. You can add shaved or crushed ice to the glass in which you are going to pour the drink in. So, the choice is up to you how you want to enjoy it.
- To make a non-alcoholic drink or mock tail make sure you do not use the blue curacao. You can instead use a blue colored syrup. It can be of blueberry flavor and it will not pose as a problem. In fact, if you want you can use the non-alcoholic blue syrup in the alcoholic drink mix too! It will just add some more color to the mix and have the same effect the drink will get you without it. You can try it for yourself too if you wish to have a mock tail instead of a cocktail. The only difference will be the absence of alcoholic elements.
You can now easily make this shark bowl drink by yourself. The best part is that you can make adjustments if you want. You can add or reduce the amount of alcohol you put into the drink. You can choose the type of shark candy you will be using. Make sure you are extra careful with the lid because you do not want to be spilling any of that drink.
Especially because the whole thing is blue colored. Just think about the mess it would make and how hard it would be to clean all that up. Anyway, it would be way tougher to deal with the fact that a lot of liquid got spilled and it will probably smell. So make sure you are extra careful while blending the entire mix and you will end up with a great refreshing drink that you can have anytime you want to!
