Shirley Temple Cocktails: Whet Your Whistle

Shirley Temple was one of the most popular film stars of the 1930s. She was a cutie: adorable, precocious, upbeat. Her movies embodied that same spirit, lifting the spirits of a nation struggling with the unemployment, starvation, and loss of hope during the Great Depression.

After Prohibition ended, children wanted to join adults in consuming "cocktails," so a California bartender invented the non-alcoholic Shirley Temple.

The ciLiving team made several "kiddie" cocktail variations (and their adult counterparts) in honor of her passing.
