on the good ship lollipop.

After purchasing a (ridiculously expensive!) bottle of Grenadine from Bottega Rotolo, I made a Shirley Temple on the weekend. It's a non-alcoholic cocktail devised by the owner of a restaurant where the stars of the time used to hang out, and named for Shirley Temple because she was too young to drink. It's traditionally made of two parts of ginger ale, one part orange juice with a splash of grenadine. It was ok I thought - nothing to write home about (in fact Shirley Temple reputedly doesn't like them herself because they're too sweet), but then I don't like ginger ale. It layered prettily though, and would be a fun thing to order in a bar or fancy restaurant if you didn't want to drink, but didn't want to stand out.
