How to Make a Shirley Temple

When making these fun drinks sure to make in tall glasses or any style glasses. Don’t forget the garnish.

Recipe Options

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.
