I couldn’t have been more than 7 or 8 years old, but still can totally recall being out to dinner with my family for a meal out.
My dad ordered me my first Shirley Temple. But what is a Shirley Temple Drink? Read on now…
See, this drink is kid friendly with no alcohol even though it is a pretty and tasty type of drink. I also loved the color and the presentation of this drink, as it was truly a fancy type of drink, but also tasted delicious. And being named after the late, but great Shirley Temple, was an added bonus as my own grandmother actually turned me onto her movies when I was younger, as well. I was and still am a fan of Shirley Temple’s movies by the way.
So after that my dad would order it for me whenever we went out as I absolutely enjoyed this drink and it became a favorite of mine after that first try.
I never lost my love for a good, old-fashioned, Shirley Temple even once I was old enough to drink alcoholic drinks.
So much so that during both of my pregnancies, when I couldn’t consume any alcohol, my husband used to make me this classy drink to at least enjoy the semblance of a fancy drink minus the alcohol content.
Fast forward to having both my girls and I decided to make Shirley Temple drinks for them as I felt they were old enough to try this drink out. Also, spring break last week. So I wanted to make this drink as a special treat during their time off.
So off to Target I went to secure supplies to fashion this Shirley Temple recipe for us. As I was shopping in my local Target and noticed that they had recently relaunched Dasani Sparkling in Raspberry Lemonade and Lime flavors in sleek cans. I quickly purchased the two different blends with the intention to make this drink for us to enjoy and make the moment sparkle with the new sleek Dasani Sparkling cans. Plus, Dasani Sparkling makes a healthier, yet flavorful beverage option.
Overall though, I absolutely loved that I could pass down my passion for the Shirley Temple drink to my girls. Also, I enjoy a classy, refreshing drink in the process.
