Here’s the best Shirley Temple, the original mocktail! The classic way to make this drink skips soda: it’s just ginger ale, grenadine, and lime.


  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) grenadine (try our homemade version)
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lime juice
  • 5 ounces (2/3 cup) ginger ale or ginger beer
  • Ice (try clear ice!)
  • For the garnish: cocktail cherry


  1. In a highball glass, stir together the grenadine and lime juice.
  2. Add the ice and fill the glass with the ginger ale. Top with cherry.
