11 Alternative Cocktails to Sip When You’ve Already Tried the Dirty Shirley

You may have heard the Dirty Shirley is the drink of the summer, but you don't have to stop there. The drink, which is a boozed-up version of the classic kid-friendly Shirley Temple, is a vodka, Sprite, grenadine and cherry garnish combo -- deliciously simple. There are many similar grenadine-containing cocktails to try, which is a pomegranate syrup (not cherry as often believed) that gives drinks the signature red hue. Sip one of these beauties on a hot summer night to feel young again.
