I can't drink alcohol any more, so I've been looking for good recipes for cocktails sans alcohol. The "Shirley Temple" is a well-known drink that is sometimes portrayed as a drink for women (I guess because of the name of the female star). But what I didn't know is that there is also a "Roy Rogers" which replaces the ginger ale with cola! Here's the recipe:
6 ounces ginger ale
1 1/2 tsp. grenadine
Garnish: orange slice and/or maraschino cherry
Pour the ginger ale (or cola for a "Roy Rogers") over crushed ice in a highball glass. Top with grenadine and then add orange slice on the side or drop in a maraschino cherry.
If you are also diabetic, of course use diet soda instead.
