Shirley Temple

When I was little, I loved ordering Shirley Temples. I mean, come on, they were pink, sweet, delicious and I felt super fancy sipping them out of a tall cocktail glass. Now that I’m a relative grown-up, I still like to order a Shirley Temple now and again. Collin Murray thinks I’m crazy but that’s ok, Shirley Temple’s are worth it.

Makes one virgin cocktail

2 tablespoons homemade grenadine

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice

1-2 cups ginger ale soda


Orange slices and maraschino cherries, for garnish (optional)

In a cocktail glass, add ice, grenadine and orange juice. Top with ginger ale. Garnish with orange juice and maraschino cherries, if desired. Enjoy.

*If you like, you can add an ounce of vanilla vodka for a Drunken Shirley Temple…quite delicious.
