Shirley Temple Milkshake
Shirley Temples, Have you ever had one?......Have you ever even heard of them? Please, Por favor! Tell me that you have?!
As a little chica I dreamed of the days when mi mama told me that we were going out to a restaurant to eat.
I always pondered about the food that I was going to choose to eat, but the drink, my bebida of choice never changed. It was always a Shirley Temple with extra, extra cherries.
The grenadine in the drink gave it a magical red color, the bubbly twang of the ginger ale always made me feel like I was drinking something way more grownup than just plain old chocolate milk.
The grand finale was the white & red striped straw plunked in the middle of the glass aligned with plump, sweet maraschino cherries.
I've made these very same drinks, with all their magical appeal but this time I gave them a little frozen twist.
One sip, may make you wanna tap dance in your chair, just like the curly topped-" Little Princess" whom this drink was named after!
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
ginger ale soda
1/4 cup of grenadine
1/4 cup of maraschino cherry juice ( and some cherries too)
Pour 1/4 cup of Grenadines syrup plus 1/4 cup of maraschino cherry juice in a tall ice cream soda glass or a mason jar. Whisk with a fork, ( or if you'd prefer, stick everything in a blender)then slowly, while still whisking, add ginger-ale soda until the glass is three-quarters full. Add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream, add soda to the top of the glass, and serve with a spoon and a straw stacked with maraschino cherries. I added a few red sprinkles just to add a little more pretty, and an extra scoop of vanilla ice cream but they are totally up to you!
