The Shirley Temple cocktail is named after the curly-haired child film-star and makes a great party punch!
The Shirley Temple cocktail is named after the curly-haired child film-star Shirley Temple. She featured in films such as The Little Princess and Curly Top and is one of the lucky celebrities to have a drink named after them. A Shirley Temple cocktail is traditionally non-alcoholic and consists of ginger ale, a splash of grenadine and is garnished with a marashino cherry. If you're looking to give your Shirley Temple a boozy twist, try adding some cherry liqueur and vodka. Some recipes also use lemon and lime soda or lemonade instead of ginger ale but we love the warmth from the ginger. You could also make a Shirley Temple punch if you're hosting a party - just be sure to carefully label which one contains alcohol if you're making both options!
- 4 to 6oz ginger ale
- 1oz grenadine (pomegranate syrup)
- 1oz lime juice
- Maraschino cherry
- Orange slice (or preferred garnish)
Pour ingredients over ice in a tall glass.
Decorate with cherry and orange slice.
