Shirley Temple

The Shirley Temple Cocktail
glass filled with ice cubes
Almost fill with ginger ale
1/2 oz. grenadine
a cherry

The drink was invented by a bartender at Chasen's restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA. It was named for the famous child actress Shirley Temple, who often visited the restaurant. She was too young to drink alcoholic cocktails like the adult movie stars, when she attended parties or visited with them.
When Temple herself is asked for her opinion of these drinks named for her, she invariably replies that she dislikes them because they are too sweet, and that she does not gain earnings for the use of her name.Later, the popular beverage became available bottled in supermarkets as the first soft drink to include a cherry.
