The Shirley Temple:
1 tbsp. grenadine
½ c. lemon-lime soft drink (“soda”) such as 7-Up
¼ c. no-pulp orange juice
1 skewered maraschino cherry (mandatory)
1 bar straw (mandatory)
1 white camellia (optional)
A sprinkling of stardust (mandatory)
Chill a broad, low glass such as a large brandy snifter. Shake together (do not whirl in a blender), three or four ice cubes, grenadine, lemon-lime drink, and pulp-free orange juice. Strain and serve, topped with a cherry, a bar straw, and (sigh!) a white camellia. Sprinkle with stardust. None in the air? Then honey, you’re wasting your time. Serves 1.
