Oh, Shirley! You classy lady, you've been with me since I was a little girl. A Shirley Temple is the first drink I ever ordered at a bar. Really! My dad worked in restaurants throughout my early childhood and I remember bellying up to the bar, (before the restaurants were open), ordering this drink, and feeling like a real pro.
The Shirley Temple and I have both grown up a bit thanks to these Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine Cherries. I bought them a few weeks ago on an impulse and have been enjoying them in a grown up classic - The Dirty Shirley.
The Dirty Shirley

This is exactly what it sounds like - an alcoholic version of the sweet virgin drink of your childhood.

1/2 ounce grenadine
Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine Cherries, to garnish
Fill a rocks glass with ice and top with the vodka, cherry liquor, grenadine, and cherries. Stir to combine. Top with soda water and enjoy.
