A Shirley temple basically is a cocktail which was made by a bartender at Chasen's restaurant which is based in Beverley Hills CA. The cocktail was named after child actress Shirley Temple, who used to visit the restaurant on regular basis.

The Shirley Temple cocktail basically is a non-alcoholic mixture which is made from Ginger ale, grenadine syrup and orange juice garnished with a maraschino cherry and a piece of lemon. The ginger ale is often replaced by 7up or sprite mainly depending on what the customer would like to have in his cocktail.

The cocktail was created keeping Shirley Temple in mind because she was too young to have alcohol like the other personalities who use to visit the restaurant. Later the drink became so well liked that it was distributed in bottled packing in supermarkets.
