Grown Up Shirley Temple.

One of the most special traditions we had growing up was a signature Shirley Temple for holiday dinners. A simple mix of Sprite + grenadine topped off with a maraschino cherry and we had the fanciest drink in town, just like the adults.

Now that I'm on the adult side of things, I'm sharing a simple recipe for a Grown Up Shirley Temple. Just grab your favorite champagne or prosecco, some sweet dark cherries and get to mixing.
