Word of the Week: Shirley Temple

Shirley temple is a noun and is a nonalcoholic mixed drink of ginger ale and grenadine garnished with a cherry. Rumor has it, the drink was first invented in 1946 for the child actress Shirley Temple when she was visiting a restaurant in West Hollywood, California. However, in an interview in 1986, Shirley Temple admitted not liking the drink and claiming it was way too sweet for her taste! Personally, I think they are delicious, and the Shirley Temple was my drink of choice when I was a kid!
