It turns any occasion into a celebration, and it’s the perfect beverage for every age. With this cherry mocktail elevate your next event! Grab all the ingredients and make a Sweet Spiked version of the Classic Bubbly Cherry Refreshment. 

What is Shirley Temple Drink/Mocktail?

          It’s a simple, delicious, cold pink/red bubbly drink that is enjoyed by youngsters and adults, and a great way to take a plain can of soda and dress it up to make it look and taste fancy. It’s the perfect holiday drink since everyone can enjoy it. Who don’t like ginger ale, swap it out for lemon-lime soda, and add both(like me!).

          I made Shirley Temple with both ginger ale & club soda, and fresh cherries add a lovely crunch to the drink. Overall this Shirley was so delicious and a fantastic way to end the day! I have used fresh cherry syrup instead of maraschino juice and grenadine.
