Shirley Temple

What is it?
A Shirley Temple is a non-alcoholic mixed drink made with lemon juice, grenadine and lemonade garnished with a maraschino cherry.

Where is it from?
The story goes that the Shirley Temple was invented in the 1930’s by a bartender in Beverly Hills, California, to serve to the child actress by the same name.

What does it taste like?
This non-alcoholic drink contrasts the sparkle and acid of the lemonade base with the sweetness of grenadine. The grenadine, while functioning as colouring, also makes this drink extremely sweet, so a minimal amount should be added.

Tip

The Shirley Temple has been modified for adults by adding alcohol. There are many varieties, such as a Dirty Shirley, which includes the addition of vodka.
