America’s favorite star is all grown up! Shirley Temple—the drink, not the actress—gets a shot of vodka for the of-age crowd, but keeps the bright red grenadine and fizzy soda for the kids at heart. And because we’re all adults here, now is not the time for the bargain bottle of vodka. Invest in something smooth and crisp to make a drink that’s refreshing, sweet and just a little boozy. Just don’t forget the final touch: a cherry (or several) on top!



  1. Fill a large highball glass with ice. Add the vodka and grenadine, then top with the soda. Garnish with the cherry and serve.
