Surely Not Temple

Surely Not Temple
5 shots out of 5

Did you enjoy a Shirley Temple as a child?

Surely Not Temple is that, but with a alcohol kick that is!

Surely Not Temple adds cherry vodka to the classic Shirley Temple.

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 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 a photo of the end result:

  2. this looks so yummy, i love sweet cocktails (anything that masks the taste of alcohol, I'm in!)

  3. Oh my god, what a fabulous idea. I used to LOVE shirley temples as a kid- my mom was in a band and I kind of grew up in Irish bars lol and I always remember going up to the bar with my dad and he would order me a shirley temple...

    1. Yes! Shirley temples were definitely a childhood drink of mine too! Now that we're grown up, I feel I need a grown up version of it! Haha!
