The Dirty Shirley cocktail is an adult version of the classic childhood Shirley Temple drink. A fizzy lemon-lime soda gets a splash of bright red grenadine, a shot of vodka, and a sweet maraschino cherry to top it off. 


  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz grenadine
  • 8 oz lemon-lime soda
  • Ice – crushed or cubed
  • Maraschino cherries for garnish


  1. Add the ice into a standard highball glass. Pour in the vodka and grenadine.
  2. Top the glass off with the lemon-lime soda. Gently stir to combine.
  3. Garnish with maraschino cherries and enjoy!
