We’ll always look back fondly on the frosés and Aperol spritzes of years past…but it’s time to try this summer’s hottest cocktail, the Dirty Shirley—that’s a Shirley Temple spiked with vodka, for the uninitiated. To make it even more refresh (and nostalgic), we turned this trendy bev into a frozen slushie. It’s cute like its namesake…but be warned: It’s potent.
The Frozen Dirty Shirley is 2022’s Answer to the Daiquiri
One 12-ounce can lemon-lime soda
2 ounces vodka
1 ounce grenadine
Maraschino cherry, to garnish
1. Pour the soda into ice cube trays and freeze until solid, at least 8 hours or overnight.
2. When the soda is frozen, place the ice cubes in a high-speed blender. Pour over the vodka, and blend until smooth.
3. Pour the grenadine into the bottom of a highball glass. Top with the slush and garnish with a cherry.
