Shirley Temple milkshakes are a decadent way to drink a childhood favorite

A shake with a cherry on top that kids of all ages can enjoy.

You know something is going to taste good when the ingredients are delicious all by themselves. Which is definitely the case with this Shirley Temple shake. Made with vanilla ice cream and the same ingredients that are in a Shirley Temple soda, this treat is not only pretty but also delicious.

It’s so easy to make too. I think the hardest part about making this shake is finding the jar of maraschino cherries with the stems on in the grocery store. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve accidentally bought the jar of cherries that didn’t have a stem on them.

So treat yourself to this Shirley Temple shake. And if you have a pink mustache when you’re done drinking it, that’s OK too.
