Mr. Robert Roy

Mr. Robert Roy
5 shots out of 5

I got inspired by my "adult version" of the Shirley Temple I made the other day, Surely Not Temple.  

I decided to kick up the other childhood favorite, a Roy Rogers, by adding some alcohol to it.  

I did and named it Mr. Robert Roy (notice his "grown-up" name).  

If I haven't already told you that we have figured out the cause of these fevers that last for-ever this is why........3 ear infections between 2 kids.  

These poor kids........and they never told me that their ears hurt......ever!  I'm glad I took them to the doctors last week and figured it out.

I gave today's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  

WOW, this is a good one!  

It's funny how you can change up a classic non-alcoholic cocktail just a little and it becomes an amazing adult cocktail!  

This cocktail sort of tastes like cherry coke but with a delicious vanilla kick.  

I will definitely be finishing this one......right now.  If you are more of a coke and not diet coke person, you can absolutely substitute it in either way would be delicious!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is a photo of the ingredients:

Here is my recipe for a Mr. Robert Roy:

  • 1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
  • 3 oz diet coke
  • 1/4 oz grenadine

In a cocktail glass filled 3/4 with ice, pour in all of your ingredients.  Stir and enjoy!!

Here's to yet another awesome "adult version" of a childhood favorite!

Hello! My name is Jen and I am The Cocktail Lady. I am a married mom of 4 who loves creating and trying new cocktails.


  1. Oh, I've made some of these with lime juice but not grenadine. I'll have to try it. After the liquor store gets vanilla vodka in stock again. Seriously, how can the store be out of vanilla in every single brand? They were, though.

    1. EVERY single brand? That's just not fair at all! I would think vanilla vodka would be the next most popular flavor......right after the regular stuff.....odd

  2. Stoli is best!!!!

  3. i LOVE vanilla vodka! this is a perfect summer drink!

  4. This drink's right up my alley! I've never tried vanilla vodka!

  5. Yummy! I love tasty and simple cocktails! I'll have to give it a try

  6. Never had a drink with grenadine and this looks great, I love vodka.

  7. I dig it. My kids grew up on Rob Roys as they tagged along to a million business meetings.

  8. Love the "grown up" name, haha! This looks delicious - I'll have to try this soon!


  9. Love it! Vanilla vodka will always be the best for me . :)
