A Shirley Temple is a non-alcoholic mixed drink made with ginger ale and a splash of grenadine, garnished with a maraschino cherry. Modern Shirley Temple recipes may substitute lemon-lime soda in part, or in whole, for ginger ale.
The cocktail may have been invented in the 1930s by a bartender at Chasen's, a restaurant in Beverly Hills, California, to serve then child actress Shirley Temple. Other claims to its origin, however, have been made.
Temple herself was not a fan of the drink, as she told Scott Simon in an NPR interview in 1986: "The saccharine, sweet, icky drink? Yes, well...those were created in the probably middle 1930s by The Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood and I had nothing to do with it. But, all over the world, I am served that. People think its funny. I hate them. Too sweet!"
