My DD used to drink these all the time when we went out to dinner, she felt like a "big girl". The only difference is we called them a Shirley Temple cocktail but the same idea. I like the ginger ale a lot better than Sprite or 7-up and I only pour enough maraschino cherry juice to give the ginger ale a tint of red and a light flavor of cherries. Great for adults as well as children. Thanks for posting Lvs2Cook and bringing back great memories! Made and reviewed for the Secret Ingredient tag game.


  1. Fill 4 martini glasses with ginger ale.
  2. Add a splash of maraschino cherry juice to each glass.
  3. Garnish each drink with 2 maraschino cherries.
