This is a simple mixed drink that is smooth and slightly sweet. If you don't like the taste of alcohol, then you will enjoy this recipe that I fix when I can't sleep.

I make these all the time with Tommy Bahama light rum and Sprite. The Sprite makes it light and refreshing. The grenadine makes it look like a Shirley Temple. So good by the pool! Read More

I have always loved cherry coke so was happy to find this recipe. The sweetness from the grenadine and rum was balanced by the sting of the carbonated coke. Yum! Read More
