For the Summer

I can just imagine myself, sitting by the pool, my huge black sunglasses on, sipping on a nice cold Shirley Temple….virgin of course 😉 Although Summer is just a few short months away, you can enjoy a little of it now. Here’s a recipe for NON-VIRGIN Shirley Temples courtesy of

  • 1 10 ounce jar maraschino cherries with stems
  • Ice
  • 1 32 ounce bottle ginger ale or lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled
  • Orange slices

  2. Fill 4 serving glasses with ice.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons cherry juice to each glass.
  4. Divide ginger ale between glasses.
  5. Top each with an orange slice and 2 cherries. Reserve remaining cherries for another use.

Makes 4 (9-ounce) servings.
