Shirley Temple drinks are probably best known as your favorite childhood beverage to enjoy but thanks to lifestyle blog She Knows, the fruity beverage has received an adult-overhaul and been made into a delicious margarita cocktail that is perfect to enjoy during hot summer days.
Traditionally, a Shirley Temple drink is made from a mix of grenadine syrup, soda, maraschino cherries and derives its name from the famous child star actress, Shirley Temple. This margarita version of the sugary drink adds in classic margarita ingredients such as lime, tequila, salt and ice to add spice maturity and more flavor. The boozy nostalgic drink is then served in a traditional wide-rimmed margarita lined with salt. This would be an ideal drink to serve at any backyard party.
The slight iterations to nostalgic soda drinks speaks to adults transitioning their favorite childhood treats to a more mature palette.
