Shirley Temple Sunday at Crafty Mom of 3's house!

Sooo CraftyKid got it in her brain that is was an epic disgrace that she never had a Shirley Temple "kiddie" cocktail. I felt bad since I as a child consumed numerous! LOL We found a hilarious YouTube video demonstration and created Shirley Temple Sunday. :)

To complete this How-To you will need:

An 8-ounce glass
3 oz. lemon-lime soda
3 oz. ginger ale
2 to 3 tsp. grenadine syrup
A stirrer
A straw
Maraschino cherries

Step 1: Fill glass with ice

Fill the beverage glass with either crushed or cubed ice, depending on your preference.

Step 2: Pour the soda and ale

Next, pour the soda and ginger ale into the glass, leaving some room at the top.

Tip: You can mix a simpler variety of this drink by doubling the lemon-lime soda content and skipping the ginger ale.

Step 3: Add grenadine and stir

Add the grenadine, stirring well to disperse the syrup evenly.

Tip: If you stir too forcefully, you'll make the soda foamy and increase the amount of melted ice. Instead, stir slowly and smoothly.

Step 4: Add garnish and serve

Garnish with 1 or 2 (or 10!) maraschino cherries and serve with a straw. You might consider extra cherries to celebrate a child's accomplishment!
