Velvety Vanilla Dirty Shirley
Shirley temples are so much better with vanilla vodka. I never would have guessed that they would be. But vanilla and orange matches beautifully together in orange juice floats so I suppose I should have suspected this would taste good. The vanilla really smoothes out the taste if that makes sense. Not sure it does. I honestly only tried it because I ran out of plain vodka. Desperation is the mother of all invention.
What you need for 1 drink:
2/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup ginger ale
1.5 ounces of vanilla vodka
1/2 to 1 ounce grenadine (depending on how sweet you want it. 1 ounce is pictured above)
If you have maraschino cherries, a few for garnish
What to do:
Add the orange juice, ginger ale and vodka to a glass.
Slowly add grenadine for a layered affect.
Serve in a cold glass or add some ice.
