Shirley Temple Cocktail Recipe

The homemade soda recipe was one of the original cocktails, and it was named after the famous child actress. It is just one of several enduring legacy pieces that Shirley Temple left behind, including this delicious mixed drink.

In addition to being one of the best non-alcoholic mixed drinks, Shirley Temple is also one of the most famous. There are a lot of restaurants that offer this mocktail so you can get it for yourself or the kids almost anywhere. There is no need to wait for a dinner out to enjoy this dish since making it at home is very easy. Simple to make with lemon-lime soda, ginger ale, grenadine, and a cherry on top, it will bring back childhood memories for some the flavors of the 80s.

Grenadine was originally defined as cherry-flavored syrup, but many people think it’s more than that. As a result of the red color and cherry garnish on the Shirley Temple, this is understandable. It is worth noting that a true grenadine contains pomegranate, which has a mild sweet flavor.


Making grenadine is incredibly easy and only requires a few ingredients. It can be stored in the refrigerator for a week at a time. You can choose recipes that use pomegranate juice or fresh pomegranates during pomegranate season.
