WHERE DID SHIRLEY TEMPLE COME FROM?

The young famous actress Shirley Temple often ate and went to parties with adult celebrities, because she couldn’t drink they made her very own mocktail. Gingerale, grenadine, and maraschino cherries. All things found behind a bar but that a child could drink!

WHAT DO YOU PUT IN A TRADITIONAL SHIRLEY TEMPLE?

Three simple ingredients!

  • Ginger Ale
  • Grenadine
  • Maraschino Cherries

CAN I SUBSTITUTE THE GINGER ALE?

Yes, if you are not a fan of ginger ale use a lemon lime soda like sprite or 7 up.

WHAT IS GRENADINE MADE OF?

Grenadine is pomegranate juice sweetened with sugar- so a pomegranate syrup. It is non-alcoholic so don’t worry about feeding it to your children!

WHERE DO I FIND GRENADINE SYRUP?

I always find mine in the alcohol isle in the “mixers” section. Ive never had any problems finding it, but if you do you can also substitute it with a Torani Pomegranate Syrup.
