Surely Not Temple
5 shots out of 5
One of the most annoying things for me about Pinterest (well it's not Pinterest's fault), is when I see something amazing that I want to know more about......like tonight's cocktail.......and I click on it and I am sent to someone's Flickr account, or a page that no longer exists. Today's cocktail was like that, I was excited about making it and so I clicked on it and it led me nowhere. Well at least they listed the ingredients (not quantities) on the pin, therefore I made my own and renamed it.
I gave today's cocktail 5 shots out of 5. OK, this cocktail I would totally drink at a social gathering. This is one of those cocktails that I am excited enough about that I would make one for all to try at the next party......yea it's that good. I totally used to order Shirley Temples when I went out to dinner with my parents as a kid. As some of you know, I would inform the waitress that I did NOT want a cherry in mine, but an olive.....or three. This cocktail has a great cherry flavor between the vodka and grenadine and mixed with the sprite, it's a winner in my book!
Here is my recipe for a Surely Not Temple:
- 1 1/2 oz cherry vodka
- 3 oz sprite (or lemon-lime soda)
- 1/4 oz grenadine
In a cocktail glass filled 3/4 with ice, pour in all of your ingredients. Stir them up well and enjoy!

Here's to finding a GREAT use for my cherry vodka!!
