A Shirley Temple is a non-alcoholic mixed drink made with ginger ale and a splash of grenadine, mixed with a maraschino cherry. Modern Shirley Temple recipes may substitute lemon-lime soda in part, or in whole, for ginger ale.[1][2][3][4][5] Shirley Temples are often served to children dining with adults in lieu of real cocktails, as is the similar Roy Rogers.[6]

The cocktail may have been invented in the 1930s by a bartender at Chasen's, a restaurant in Beverly Hills, California, to serve then child actress Shirley Temple (1928–2014). However, other claims to its origin have been made.[7] For the cocktail version of this, Shirley Temple Black (after she got married), replace ginger ale with alcoholic ginger beer, and add dark rum (or white rum and Maraschino liqueur).
