Kid Friendly New Years Eve Drinks

Family Fun has some great kid friendly drinks for New Years Eve!



TRIPLE RED SHIRLEY TEMPLE
1 oz. grenadine syrup
6 oz. cranberry juice
4 oz. cranberry ginger ale
1 paper umbrella
3 maraschino cherries
Orange slice
Ice (optional)

Mix the syrup, cranberry juice and ginger ale in a tall glass. Open the umbrella and slide the three cherries onto the handle. Balance the umbrella on the glass rim in front of the orange slice.


NEW YEAR'S SUNRISE
4 oz. seltzer
6 oz. orange juice
1/2 oz. grenadine syrup
1 orange slice
1 lemon slice
1 maraschino cherry
Plastic toothpick

In a tall glass, mix the seltzer and orange juice. Slowly pour the grenadine into the center of the glass, allowing the syrup to settle on the bottom (thanks to its greater density). Garnish with the orange, lemon and cherry, stacked and skewered with the toothpick.


STARRY, STARRY NIGHT
4 oz. papaya juice
2 oz. pineapple juice
4 oz. ginger ale
Lemon and lime peel
1 or 2 slices of star fruit
Ice (optional)

In a tall glass, mix the papaya and pineapple juices and the ginger ale. For the garnish, use a small, star-shaped cookie cutter to cut star shapes from the lemon and lime peels. Slide the slices of star fruit onto the glass rim.

I love all of these tips. My parents did the clock thing on us too and we just found out about it a couple of years ago. Those drinks sound very yummy.

Oh how I would love to have a Shirley Temple. I wish I had read blogs before grocery shopping!

Happy New Year!
