Shirley Temple Recipe

American Dessert



6 ounces Sierra MistTM or Seven UpTM or SpriteTM
1 ounce grenadine syrup
1 maraschino cherry with stem


Pour Sierra MistTM and grenadine syrup into glass. Add as much ice as you want. Top it all with a maraschino cherry.


1) My mother loved Shirley Temple when she was a little girl. She’d go to every Shirley Temple movie if she had the money.

2) This was during the Great Depression when times were truly hard. Movie theaters, in order to get people to come by, would offer free tap dancing lessions.

3) When I was little and went out with the family for dinner, my parents would make me feel important by letting me order a Shirley Temple. I really thought no one could tell the difference between my drink and the drinks all the adults were having.

4) Now that I’m an adult I have something much stronger, a Roy Rogers.
