Holiday Mocktail Recipes

Cheers to the holidays! Enjoy my fabulous holiday mocktail recipes! Full of fun and flavor + some secret ingredients!

Remember the Shirley Temple’s that our Mom’s ordered for us when we were children? Now days the craze is “Dirty Shirley’s” – the adult version of a Shirley Temple – with vodka, grenadine, lemon lime soda and maraschino cherry. But, what if you are abstaining from alcohol? I present the “Flirty Shirley” – pomegrante juice, Shirley Temple soda topped with zingy ginger beer. Refreshing!

Grenadine is made with pomegranate juice. The Shirley Temple soda is very sweet so the pomegranate juice helps to tame the sweetness.

If you’d like to make a Dirty Shirley with my Flirty Shirley recipe, just add some vodka!
