Shirley Temple Cocktail
New year’s eve is just around the corner and we have a bubbly and simple drink to serve family and friends. A classic Shirley Temple has lemon lime soda, such as 7UP®, ginger ale and maraschino cherry juice or grenadine. It’s served with an orange slice and cherry and makes for a refreshing drink recipe.
Invite a few close friends and family to ring in the new year with a party at home. New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest party nights of the year and this annual occasion is a great time to serve impressive drinks. Making a Shirley Temple is a great idea for a party. It is made without alcohol but can easily accommodate a splash of vodka to make it a Dirty Shirley and a more grown up drink. If you’re looking to serve a drink up that will sparkle this New Year’s Eve, try this Shirley Temple.
Shirley Temple Cocktails or “Kiddie Cocktails” bring back all sorts of nostalgia. I remember when I was young, every holiday I’d ask my mom for a kiddie cocktail. The bubbly soda mixed with just the right amount of cherry juice made for my favorite holiday drink. Still to this day, I enjoy the classic Shirley Temple Cocktail. If you’re looking to keep it simple and budget friendly this New Year’s, this classic drink is great for the occasion.
