Subject: Shirley Temple... drink named after the child star

Written By: Puke Lerry on 01/11/06 at 4:44 am

Does anybody know if the '30's child actress had  any connections with the alcoholic drink that shared the same name?

Just curious.

a Shirley Temple isn't an alcoholic drink....it is merely gingerale or 7-up with cherry juice and/or cherries in it.

From Wikipedia:

A Shirley Temple is a non-alcoholic cocktail made with lemon-lime soda and Grenadine syrup, garnished with a maraschino cherry and slice of lemon or orange. It is often served to children dining with elders to let them share the experience of drinking a cocktail, which is why it is sometimes called a Kiddie Cocktail.

The drink was invented at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii. It was named for the famous child actor Shirley Temple, who often stayed at the hotel and dined with other celebrities at its restaurants.

Later, the popular beverage became available bottled in supermarkets as the first cherry soda to include an actual cherry.
