Grown-Up Shirley Temple

The zero-proof Shirley Temple has many variations, but ultimately it’s reputation as a cloyingly sweet pink drink made exclusively for kids prevails across each one.

In this recipe, we’ve updated the classic for kids AND kids at heart. We’ve eliminated the sugary soda, upped the acidity, and added a bitter element all while keeping the original flavor profile front and center.

Whatever you do, don’t skimp on the cherries!

4.25 oz Top Note Club Soda No. 1
