Shirley Temples


I can remember my grandfather used to make these for me all the time when I was a kid. Does anyone have a good Shirley Temple recipe? Something "different" with it, perhaps?


When I was young, kids were allowed to sit at the bar and drink Shirley Temples. I didn't know there were different ways to make one. The only recipe I was showed was:

  • Seven-Up in a Highball glass
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons grenadine syrup
  • 1 maraschino cherry

I would always get Shirley Temples whenever my family would go out to eat. The adults would get their pretty margaritas and cocktails and I would feel like I was part of the club when they would get my a Shirley Temple. I have always wanted to make my own at home. Thanks for posting! I might just add a little vodka to it and call it a grown up Shirley!


I remember Shirley from when I was a kid and then I grew up and started to make her dirty. She never disappoints.

I never even knew there was a Dirty Shirley to start with. I guess I have a ton of catching up to do with the gal!


I know some people do this with ginger ale now instead of 7up or Sprite.

Or you could go with a Roy Rogers and use cola instead of a clear soda.
