How to Make the Perfect Shirley Temple ~
This classic kid-favorite cocktail is super quick and easy to make!
Only 3 ingredients!
I don’t think there’s a little girl out there who doesn’t love Shirley Temples!
This classic kids’ cocktail has been my daughter’s favorite restaurant treat for years. Just a few nights ago, we wanted to go out for dinner and gave her the honor of choosing the restaurant.
She immediately chose a place nearby that we all know and love and while waiting for our table, I asked her why she chose this place. Her response – “They make the best Shirley Temples!”
What?! Really?! Okay, they make a darn good margarita, too, but that’s beside the point.
Such a thing has never been my basis for choosing where I want to eat my evening meal.
Right then and there I decided it was time to show this girl how simple it is to recreate her favorite restaurant drink at home.
She was amazed how easy it was and I was happy when she declared my Shirley Temple concoction, “way better than the ones at the restaurant!”
The secret is simple… It’s all about the cherry juice/Sprite ratio.
Sit back and let the little ones praise your talent.
They’ll think you’re a master mixologist!
