  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 ounce grenadine (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 8 ounces ginger ale or lemon-lime soda (or a mixture of the two), chilled
  • maraschino cherries and mint sprigs , for garnish


  1. Add the ice to a cup and then pour the grenadine over the ice.
  2. Add the soda of your choice and stir gently to combine.
  3. Add a maraschino cherry to the top of the glass and a sprig of mint if you'd like. 
  4. Serve right away.


  • Need more than a few Shirley Temples? Try making a Shirley Temple Party Punch, here's the recipe: Add 6 cups ice, 1 (12-ounce) bottle Grenadine, and 1 bottle each (2 liters each) of lemon-lime soda and ginger ale to a large serving bowl and stir gentle to combine!  Top with a whole jar of maraschino cherries without any stems and serve it like any other party punch. It's always a huge hit and the color is so pretty!
  • Use what soda you like or have on hand. You can do all lemon-lime or all ginger ale or do a mix of the two. I prefer all ginger ale.
