I'll take extra cherries in my Shirley Temple mojito, please. The cherry was my favorite part of a Shirley Temple drink when I was a kid. I used to ask for extra, and now that I'm the one making the drinks, I like to load it up with cherries.

This colorful mojito isn't kid stuff, that's for sure, but it may just make you feel like a kid again even if just for a moment.
