This was another Pinterest adventure! I pinned this recipe from a post on Buzzfeed called “8 Pink Drinks for When You’ve Had Enough of Valentine’s Day” and tried it out at the end of a long week in Savannah on August 31, 2012.
The Dirty Shirley
1 1/2 ounces cherry vodka
3 1/2 ounces Sprite
1/2 ounce grenadine
Fill a highball glass with ice, pour in ingredients, stir, and garnish with a cherry.
These were a little sweet, but pretty tasty! We used real cherries as garnish because we had them, but maraschino cherries would work as well. I think a little less grenadine would definitely work fine, especially if maraschino cherries were used. But they were very pretty and we enjoyed them! I would definitely do these again, especially for my friends that like sweeter drinks.
