Pretty much like the Sharkbite at Joe's Crab Shack. One shortcut is to substitute 1.5 oz Sweetened Lime Juice for the syrup and lime if you don't have them available. The trick to the blood 'floating' is the ice and glass shape. Lots of ice, smaller cubes, and glass that tapers gently inward. Holding your finger over the grenadine let it dribble out in drops. It should sit mostly on the ice. You want as much ice surface area as possible to give it something to hang onto on it's way down. Master this application of ice and glass and you'll be ahead of most would-be bartenders. And developing the technique with friends is an enjoyable way to kill a fifth of rum, hehehe. Read More
