As a bartender I always needed a go to drink for people that didn’t like alcohol, but wanted to get a buzz. This drink has great flavor, masks alcohol very well and comes in a bright red package.
This adds the best part of drinking to the traditional non-alcoholic drink. Vodka!!
The Not-So-Shirley Temple
- 1-2 oz – Vodka
- 5 oz – 7-up or Sprite
- 1/2 oz – Grenadine
- 2 maraschino cherries for garnish
Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add the vodka and 7-up or Sprite. Then top with the Grenadine and stir. Top with the maraschino cherries and serve.
This drink is tasty and sweet. Not for the person that hates sweet, but definitely for the person that hates the taste of alcohol.
Bartender Tip of the Day
When I used to bartend I would get asked to make a drink for a person. They would always say, surprise me, or give me whatever you recommend. I created a little chart to help you out if you ever have a party or find yourself bartending. It sounds basic, but it works 90% of the time.
