Shirley Temple Punch is a delicous sweet, fruity, fizzy drink made as a multi-serving mocktail. The perfect summer party punch or when serving alcohol is not appropriate.

  • 52 ounce bottle pulp-free orange juice Tropicana not from concentrate brand
  • 2 (2 liter) bottles lemon-lime soda (Sprite)
  • 1 cup grenadine syrup

  • ½ cup maraschino cherries liquids drained (plus more for garnish)

  • Add the ice to the punch bowl and garnish the surface with navel orange slices and maraschino cherries.
    6 cups ice cubes,1 navel orange,½ cup maraschino cherries
  • Garnish individual serving glasses with a slice of naval orange and a skewer of maraschino cherries if desired. Ladle the punch into garnished glasses as needed.



  • To Store: As long as you do not add the soda and ice to the punch, you can keep it in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Add the lemon-lime soda and ice when you are ready to serve.


  • Don’t Dilute The Drink: Be sure to completely chill your orange juice, lemon-lime soda and grenadine syrup in the refrigerator prior to adding it to the punch bowl. Having your ingredients cold before adding the ice will help to slow the melting of the ice cubes in the shirley temple punch as it sits. Alternately, you can mix the punch and omit the ice cubes, allowing guests to add ice to their personal cups and then ladeling the undiluted punch over the ice in their individual glass.
  • Swap The Soda: You can substitute ginger ale for half, or all of the lemon-lime soda. Be mindful that it will alter the taste of the punch slightly, but ginger ale is commonly used in traditional Shirley Temple cocktails as well. You can even use a cherry-flavored soda to put an extra cherry on top! Or, use cola to make it a Roy Rogers punch (the male version of Shirley).
  • Spike Your Sip: You can make a grown-up dirty Shirley version of this kiddie cocktail by spiking it with vodka, rum, or another boozy beverage. You can even make a dessert drink by pouring the punch over a scoop of ice cream, like my Dirty Shirly Float, or serve it in solid form like my Dirty Shirley Jello Shots.
