You guys! This is the last installment of my end-of-summer cocktail series. That must mean that *sniff sniff* summer is actually coming to a close. Before we say adios to summer, let’s enjoy one last summery drink…
The Shirley Temple is such a classic. SO easy and always delicious… and let’s be honest, it’s a great excuse to eat numerous maraschino cherries without judgement. Needless to say while making + photographing this drink, I had waaaay too many cherries. In my defense it’s made with zero calorie Zevia… so that means we can all have more cherries, right??
Ingredients (for one drink)
+ 3-4 oz Lemon Lime Twist Zevia
+ 1 oz vodka
+ 1/2 oz grenadine
+ maraschino cherries
01 fill your favorite glass with ice (I opted for some vintage bar glasses to give it a more grown-up edge).
02 add vodka and grenadine, then top off with Zevia.
03 garnish with cherries. As many as you want. No judgement.
P.S. you could totally make this without the vodka for a lower calorie classic Shirley Temple.
I hope you enjoyed this series as much as I did! Did you try any of the recipes? I’d love to hear from you!
Happy final days of summer, friends!
