Shirley Gemple :: A classic with a twist.

One of my favorite beverages of all time is a Shirley Temple; something about how the syrup and soda intermingle in the glass and the ice with a pretty straw. And don’t forget the maraschino cherry!

But, too much of a good thing; can turn into a bad thing, so I took the drink, and tweaked it just slightly. I hope you enjoy this version as much as I do!



Shirley Gemple :: A classic with a twist.
Recipe type: Beverages
Move over Shirley Temple; there's a new girl in town.
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed juice from tangerines
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 can Blue Sky Cream Soda
  • 1 tangerine slice
  1. Combine the water, sugar and tangerine juice in a small saucepan and heat over moderate heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Once the sugar has completely dissolved and the syrup is clear, take the pan off the heat and pour the syrup in a mug to cool to room temperature. Let the syrup cool to room temperature before placing it in the fridge until use.
  3. In a tall glass pour enough syrup to cover the bottom of the glass about ½" deep; add ice. Pour cream soda over gently. Slide a cute orange straw into your glass, and garnish with the tangerine slice.
  4. Enjoy!
The syrup will keep, tightly sealed in the fridge, for at least 2 weeks.
