The Shirley Temple might be the most famous nonalcoholic mocktail out there. It’s the perfect way to take a household staple like 7UP and make it feel a little more fancy. Whether you’re making it for a mocktail-loving crowd or the kids in the crowd, it’s one very simple recipe that should always be in your go-to stack.
Where did the name Shirley Temple come from? The drink was named after iconic child actress Shirley Temple. Legend has it that when she was out to dinner at a nice restaurant with her parents and other Hollywood types who were all enjoying cocktails, the bartender made her a special nonalcoholic drink so she could feel fancy too. Instead of 7UP, the Shirley Temple recipe can also be made with Canada Dry® Ginger Ale.
