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.
