You won't believe how easy this recipe is.
Add the grenadine.
Adding the soda.
Top with cherries.
Add your straws.
- Pepsi - you can use Pepsi or another brand of your favorite carbonated beverage.
- Alcohol - add in whiskey or vodka to make it alcoholic.
- Lemon - add in a couple of slices of lemon to add a lemon flavor to the drink.
- Female version - The female version of the Roy Rogers drink is the Shirley Temple mocktail.
The only equipment you will need for this recipe are a couple of straws, a glass for each serving, and a jigger to measure the grenadine.
You won't need to worry about any storage as you only prepare a serving of this at a time.
You can adjust the amount of grenadine that you add to the glass. We suggest ½ oz, however, you add less or more depending on your tastes.
Many people assume that grenadine is cherry-flavored, but in reality, it's made with pomegranate. With its appealing tart-sweet flavor, grenadine makes for a superb cocktail mixer not only because of its taste but also for its vibrant hue.
They are similar in the fact that they both use grenadine. However, the Roy Rogers drink uses cola, and the Shirley Temple uses lemon-lime soda or ginger ale.
Frequently referred to as a 'bar cherry', Maraschino cherries are sugared and preserved. The term hails from the marasca cherry, mainly originating in Croatia.
