As soon as I came across this recipe in the reviews I immediately set out to try it. Mixed this right up using my fav Coke Zero and I wasn't surprised at all when I found it... delightful! The best things come from simple yet creative ideas like this! Read More

I used one teaspoon of grenadine and three maraschino cherries, but didn't get that cherry coke flavour the other reviews raved about. Maybe because I used Coke Zero? I would use two teaspoons of grenadine next time... I prefer using Sprite, hence being a Shirley Temple (a little note... Try creme de menthe- the mint version of grenadine- in your Shirley Temple for a different twist). Read More

We make this A LOT in this house. Works just as well with diet cola/"zero" cola. Awesome with a scoop of ice cream too. Read More

Whenever my brother & I went out to a nice restaurant as kids I got a Shirley Temple and Timmy got a Roy Rogers. We thought we were so cool 'cuz they were served in 'grown-up glasses'. Thanks for bringing such great ancient memories back! Read More

If you like cherry cola you'll enjoy this! I use 1 teaspoon of grenadine but you can adjust the amount to suit your taste. Read More
