This classic Shirley Temple recipe brings back fond childhood memories. As a child, I was delighted to be served a Shirley Temple drink garnished with maraschino cherries on a skewer. They are so simple to make and kids love them so let’s make some together…

For fun, I like to offer different flavored syrups. It is perfect for kid’s birthday parties served in a punch bowl with a fruit-flavored ice ring.
To make this drink healthier omit ingredients that contain corn syrup. Also replacing some of the ginger ale or lemon-lime soda with orange juice.
If you plan you can add a splash of grenadine and cherries to your ice cubes for a special garnish. I found a large variety of healthier grenadine syrups online thus I will be ordering some for my next mocktail party.
Another option is to use cherry juice instead of the ounce of grenadine.
