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:

  1. Add the orange juice, ginger ale and vodka to a glass.

  2. Slowly add grenadine for a layered affect.

  3. Serve in a cold glass or add some ice.
