Step back in time with a classic mocktail that’s been slimmed down for the modern health-conscious era. The Skinny Shirley Temple is a refreshing, bubbly drink that pays homage to the original but with a lighter twist.

The Original Shirley Temple Composition

The original Shirley Temple mocktail was a sweet, non-alcoholic drink made primarily with ginger ale, a splash of grenadine for color and sweetness, and garnished with maraschino cherries.

Sprite or Ginger Ale in a Shirley Temple?

While ginger ale is traditional, many variations now use Sprite or 7UP. For our skinny version, we’ll opt for diet ginger ale to maintain the classic flavor while cutting down on sugar.
