Fruity, bubbly, sweet, and the perfect throwback to childhood. This Shirley Temple is one of my favorite summertime drinks!


  • 12 ounces sprite
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons maraschino cherry juice


  • Combine sprite and cherry juice in a glass.
  • Stir together and serve over ice.


  • Instead of using Sprite, try Sprite Zero! I personally like it better now that I'm older. It's less sweet!
  • Add a splash of bourbon or vodka to make this into a delicious cocktail.
Expert Tips:
  • Use cold sprite to keep the ice from melting so fast.
  • Feel free to adjust the ratio of sprite to cherry juice to your taste.
  • This recipe is vegan and gluten free.
  • It does not store. Once you mix it up, you will need to drink it because once the sprite becomes flat, it's not very enjoyable.
