Learn how to make a Roy Rogers drink…an easy recipe with just 3 ingredients. This summer drink with cherries and cola will take you back!
Mocktails are family-friendly, non-alcoholic drinks and they are perfect for summertime. We shared how to make a Shirley Temple drink earlier this week, and today we’re showing you how to make a Roy Rogers drink recipe.
It’s a refreshing drink with sweet grenadine syrup is reminiscent of cherry cola. Load your glass with ice, maraschino cherries and these two simple ingredients.
This drink is the little boy version of the Shirley Temple and has the name of the famous cowboy actor and singer, Roy Rogers.
It’s a non-alcoholic mocktail and it is rumored that Roy Rogers did not drink alcohol, which may be why his name was chosen to represent this.
You’ll need 3 ingredients:
Grenadine syrup is a popular addition to many cocktails and mocktails (such as our sunrise mocktail recipe), known by its deep red color. It was originally made from pomegranates, whose french name is grenade, which is how the syrup got its name. Today many grenadine syrups are made with artificial flavors, but you can buy or make your own with natural pomegranate juice.
Because this drink has maraschino cherries in it, you may think that grenadine syrup is made from cherries, but it is not.
I buy Rose’s grenadine syrup, but you can make your own at home.
It’s easy to make one drink at at time following this guideline: 1 ounce of grenadine syrup to 8 ounces of cola. You can adjust it to have more syrup if you’d like, but this is a good place to start.
