Friday ~ "Thanksgiving Fun!"

Today I'm going to show you a fun and festive drink that both adults and children will love!

Here are the ingredients: Ginger Ale (or Sprite), Maraschino cherries, sugar, and liquid red food coloring.
Ingredients

The first step is to make some colored sugar. I use 4 drops of food coloring and a 1/2 cup of sugar.
Sugar

Mix together, mashing sugar with back of spoon.
Sugar

Sugar

Take a glass and run a orange or lemon slice along the edge. This will help the sugar stick.
Orange

Dip the glass in the sugar.
Glass

Fill the glass with ginger ale.
Glass

Add 2-3 spoonfuls of the cherry juice.
Syrup

Drop in one or two cherries...
Cherries

...and enjoy!

Looks both pretty and good! I know my girls would think they were pretty "special" to drink something like that. :)

These are absolutely cute!
We called them shirley temples when I was growing up...and everytime we went out to dine at Red Lobster or anywhere with a bar really, my daddy would ask us if we wanted a shirley temple...we always squealed "yesssssss!" We would get them at his office Christmas parties each year also. Fun memories! Thanks...
