Shirley Temple Ice Cream Float Recipe

Looking for the perfect pink drink for Valentine's day?  You can't go wrong with a classic Shirley Temple.

Shirley Temple Recipe Ingredients:

  • Lemon lime soda
  • Gingerale
  • Grenadine syrup
  • Maraschino cherry

A classic Shirley Temple is just equal parts lemon lime and gingerale sodas, with a splash of grenadine syrup, and a maraschino cherry for garnish.  

It's simple, refreshing, and pretty, too, just as it is.  Oh sure, you can add various types of liquor to it to make a more adult version of this childhood favorite, but the add-in I love most?  Vanilla ice cream.

Just a scoop of vanilla ice cream turns a classic Shirley Temple into an absolutely amazing Shirley Temple Float.  

The creaminess of the vanilla ice cream is absolutely perfect with the sparkling, light pomegranate flavor of the Shirley Temple.

Who cares if it's still winter?  The time is always right for an ice cream float.  Especially one as perfectly pink and piquant as a Shirley Temple Ice Cream Float.
