Pomegranate Shirley Temple
When I was a kid, I thought there was no better drink than a Shirley Temple. This is a delightfully fun recipe to make if you enjoy a mocktail!
I'm not a lover of grenadine these days - it's got a bit of a strong aftertaste from the red dye that I'm not crazy about. So, I found a great way to make my own grenadine which I've used for this recipe.
I have several friends who don't drink alcohol or who are pregnant - when they come over for parties I like to have a non-alcoholic cocktail to offer them. I've had one too many experiences where a non-drinker will ask what I've got for them to drink and I'm like...um milk, water, or some half and half... Not a particularly welcome feeling for a guest!
I don't really allow myself to buy soda, because I'd drink all of it if it was in the house! But for this drink, I made an exception and grabbed some ginger ale.
