Not Martha


I got very bored when I was stuck inside with my cold so I started drinking Shirley Temples instead of plain ginger ale (it’s still clear, right?). Now I’m hooked. They’re so cheerful, with the bright red maraschino cherries and layered pink fizzy liquid. Yum. Just wait until I start ordering them in actual bars.

Grenadine is colored and flavored with pomegranate, as a kid I always thought it was maraschino cherry juice (I never actually asked anyone what it was). Pomegranate, for some reason that seems really strange to me. I’m a product of the Eighties and expect that anything that syrup-ie would be artificially flavored like what Americans between the ages of 5 and 12 think red should taste like. Thank god for old fashioned things.
