On The Rocks: Vanilla Bean Dirty Shirley


Who doesn’t love a good ol’ shirley temple?! This adult version is absolutely delicious and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. I decided to use fresh cherries because I didn’t want it to be too sweet and the vanilla gives it a wonderful, subtle flavor.


~1 1/2 shots of vanilla flavored vodka

~Fresh, pitted cherries

~1/2 vanilla bean scraped

~Drop of grenadine (depending on sweetness preference)


*Muddle cherries in glass until fully smashed, add vodka, vanilla bean, sprite, and grenadine. Served shaken on the rocks. If you want a more traditional shirley temple, you can use maraschino cherries.
