dirty shirley temple

As a kid I LOVED Shirley Temples. They are very nostalgic for me, they were a special treat when I’d get to go out for dinner with my Dad to The Cat’s Caboose (super cool restaurant inside a train!). So, when I saw this recipe on Pinterest (for which the link no longer works) I had to try it. I made them on my Mom’s actual birthdate and served them in my late Grandma’s vintage glasses; we had Dirty Shirleys in Shirely’s glasses :)
