Shirley Temple Cocktails: Whet Your Whistle

Shirley Temple never liked the drink names after her. She even threatened to sue to prevent bartenders from using her name in connection with it! But the name stuck and in honor of her passing, the ciLiving team makes adult and "kiddie" versions of the Shirley Temple.

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.
