Shirley Temple Drink
A non-alcoholic beverage that brings me back to my carefree childhood.
Drinking a Shirley Temple on the rare occasions that my family went out to a restaurant . . . that was pure joy back when I was 6 years old! This is my fancied-up version of that favorite childhood drink.
- Juice from 1/2 Lime
- Juice from 1/2 Lemon
- 2 tsp Ultrafine Sugar, optional
- 3/4 Cup Black Cherry Juice*
- 8.5 oz bottle Seltzer Water
- Ice, I prefer crushed ice
- Lime Wedges
- Lemon Wedges
- Stir together the lime juice, lemon juice, cherry juice and sugar.
- Fill glasses with ice.
- Fill the glasses 3/4 full with juice mixture.
- Top off the glasses with seltzer water.
- Add garnishes and serve.
*I used R.W. Knudsen Just Black Cherry Juice
This makes about 1½ cups juice. Yields one large Shirley Temple or two small drinks.
