Thirsty Thursday - Spirited Shirley


As a kid there was really nothing better then ordering a shirley temple when out to dinner with the family and when the bartender dressed the drink with extra cherries, I thought I had won the lottery.  The super sweet cocktail was always a treat for me and to this day I find myself stealing sips from my nieces as they order the same drink when we are dining out. So I thought it would be fun to take the classic drink and turn it into a cocktail, I know, I know, I am not reinventing the wheel here, this has been done time and time again calling it the "dirty shirley" - which is a name I absolutely loathe. So I bought some premium ingredients and added a ounce of vodka to my cocktail and created what I am going to call a "spirited shirley". Since I hate when my cherries sink to the bottom of my glass I thought I would braid the stems to keep them afloat for indulging while sipping. Cheers!



Ingredients

3 ounces ginger ale
dask grenadine
1 oz premium vodka
3 maraschino cherries

pour soda into a tall glass with ice
