Your childhood Shirley Temple, all grown up mojito-style

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.

Lime and fresh mint complement this refreshing drink inside and out.

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.
