When you first hear the words Shirley Temple, you might assume it to be one of those wildly unreasonable and inappropriate sex moves.
But you would be wrong, because the Shirley Temple is actually delicious, and in fact, not dirty at all.
The Telegraph doesn’t drink on the graft:
The classic ‘mocktail’, which today is often given a fresh lift, as here, with a squeeze of citrus juice (lime is best). Drink with a brightly coloured straw.
O’ritey, let’s get down to business. What exactly is in this tasty brew?
- 15ml grenadine syrup
- 15ml freshly squeezed lime juice
- 200ml chilled ginger ale
- Maraschino cocktail cherry and thin lime slice, to decorate
- Ice cubes
The ginger. It’s all about the ginger. And no one does it better than Fitch & Leedes. They clearly ate a lot of the spicy cookies back in the day, and I can’t thank whoever’s granny it was enough. They’ve got an entire range of bespoke mixers that are even getting the shy guys pouring:
Back to Shirley. How do you make her? This is basic science at its best:
Place a few ice cubes in a tumbler, add the grenadine and lime juice then top up with (Fitch for the win) ginger ale, and garnish with the cocktail cherry and lime slice.
There you have it. Pretty damn simple. And if you’re after more fancy drinks that won’t get you white-girl-wasted, here’s nine more booze-less cocktails.
Don’t you EVER say that 2OV doesn’t have your back.
