Shirley Temples

Classic Shirley Temples are a delicious no alcohol drink that the whole family can enjoy!

Shirley Temples are ingrained into my memory as special treat from my childhood.  I remember when my family, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents would all get together at the lake in the summer my Grandma and Grandpa would make Shirley Temples for all of us kids.  In my mind I can still see them standing at the counter mixing drink after drink as all of the cousins lined up to get theirs.  I remember feeling so grown up to be enjoying this colourful and yummy drink…these were special.  I’ll never forget those amazing and fleeting times, because they were some of my best.

Now I make them for my kids and they enjoy them just as much as I did.  When you’re a kid there is something so ‘fancy’ and fantastic about a Shirley Temple.

Shirley Temples {A Pretty Life}

A perfect drink for the whole family!

Shirley Temples really should be assembled one glass at a time, because you can get the layering of the grenadine, orange juice and soda in the glass done properly.  If you try to make a large jug of it, you won’t get the flavouring quite right.  And really, they’re not hard to make so it’s no trouble.  You can make these in ‘fancy’ glasses, or in Mason jars which I really like…everything looks better in a Mason jar right?!  😉
