It's a punch-like concoction that melds the sweetness of pineapple juice with the citrus kick of orange juice, balanced by the sharpness of lemon. The addition of triple sec adds a hint of orange-flavored complexity, while tequila provides the cocktail with its spirited backbone. This beverage is enriched further with the potency of overproof rum, which amplifies its intoxicating qualities. A touch of grenadine is typically used to create a visual effect resembling blood in the water, enhancing the 'shark attack' theme. Served in a whisky glass, this cocktail offers a striking presentation that's equally matched by its robust and fruity flavor profile.
