Shirley Temple (Non-Alcoholic)

The Shirley Temple is a pretty bastardized non-alcoholic cocktail--one I would never order at a bar because you're likely to get a Sprite loaded with tons of cheap grenadine. It's like diabetes in a glass.

What if there was a good recipe for the Shirley Temple that revived and vindicated the young actress' favorite bar drink? Turns out there is. And when you use fresh juice and serve it in an Old Fashioned glass, you have a mocktail that looks like an Old Fashioned and tastes like summer.
  • 2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. pomegranate syrup (or grenadine if you must)
  • ginger ale
  • maraschino cherry
  • lemon wedge
Combine lemon juice and syrups in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into an Old Fashioned glass full of ice. Top with ginger ale and stir gently. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and lemon wedge.
