Whether it’s desserts or drinks, I’m always drawn to the sweetest ones. My favorite drink to order at restaurants growing up was always Shirley Temples. I couldn’t describe the flavor if I had to other than sugary; but really that was never a concern.
Even now I’m still drawn to that syrupy-sweet taste of grenadine. And I’ve come to learn it’s even better with a tart and salty contrast and some deeper flavor to it like amaretto.
This is drink is definitely on the sweet side. You can add a splash of seltzer to dilute the flavor slightly and add a carbonated twist to it or add a little vodka to make the drink stronger without changing the flavor too much.
