Were I a summonable creature, what kind of ritual would you craft to summon me?

...probably a summoning ritual?

It's a somewhat involved ritual. It would require drift-wood borders for the summoning circle and special runes either drawn in sand or with sand (if not at a sandy place) within.
At the center needs to be a wide bowl (preferably of stainless steel, like a mixing bowl but just about any will do) filled with two parts sea water and one part river water. Add a heart-of-palm to the water and sprinkle tea leaves on top (the mixture of tea leaves determines certain minor attributes of the summoned ArrinCreature, but figuring out which mixture at what concentration and which attribute it effects takes trial and error).

Then there's some magic words and chanting, of course, to trigger the summon but that's not too lengthy. The quality of ingredients, care taken in preparation, and phase of the moon influence the strength of the ArrinCreature and how long the summon lasts.

Fortunately there is a short-cut. If one takes a lock of the ArrinCreature's hair (or fur?) it can be used to summon again without all the driftwood and tea nonsense. It is consumed by the short ritual, though, so it must be retaken each time and it has diminishing returns, so by the 20th lock-of-hair-summon the ArrinCreature is significantly weaker than the initial summon and won't stick around nearly as long.
