HOW TO MAKE SHIRLEY TEMPLE  A HALLOWEEN DRINK!

Here are some tips to make your Shirley temple super spooky. 

1- FREEZE THE GRENDADINE IN THE CUP BEFORE SERVING. 

Fill the cup with ice, and ginger ale and serve. You can top it off with little more grenadine if desired. The frozen red syrup at the bottom looks like blood and as it melts it will seep upwards into the drink giving the illusion of blood. (tip your cups slightly in the freezer for extra spooky effects)

2- CANDY EYES IN THE CHERRIES

This is very easy to do! Either place the eye where the pit was removed (a hole will already be there) or Using a knife cut an X in the desired area where you would like the eye to be and press it in the cherry.

3- HOW TO MAKE FAKE BLOOD DRIPPING DOWN THE SIDE

Mix Karo Syrup and red food dye (can be natural) together and slowly drizzle along rim. If you have time immediately place in the freeze to chill the karo syrup and keep it from dripping too far down.
