WOOOO, it’s FRIDAY!!!! TGIF all!!…..So, Shirley Temples were my JAM during pregnancy! Every night it was me, some flavored seltzer, grenadine, and a cherry. NOW, on the other hand, I’m allowed to pop a little bubbly now and then- (WOO!)… but I still felt the need to incorporate my friend Shirley Temple into the mix. So, I introduce to you… Champagne Shirley! These look so fancy shamncy but they’re so easy to make… perfect for ladies nights, bridal showers, watching the Bachelorette… (who is JoJo gonna pick!???!?)… uhh let’s see… they’re good for Taco Tuesdays, Thirsty Thursdays…Sloppy Saturdays.. (okay… gone too far?!)
Moscato champagne or just regular is perfect with this. And I have to say, they’d make really cute Christmas cocktails too. Too bad we’re ridiculously far away from Christmas right now. Oh well, as mentioned, tons of other excuses to drink these anytime 😉 Like today… what’s my
excuse valid reason to have one today….
….well, it’s HOT out. Duh. Need a drink when it’s hot out.
- 8 oz. cold Champagne of your choice
- A splash of grenadine
- An orange wedge & Grenadine cherry to garnish
- Crushed Ice, optional
- Pour the champagne into a glass, followed by the grenadine.
- Drop the orange and cherry right into the glass, or hook it through a toothpick and place on the top of the glass 😉
