|A Shirley Temple to drink while watching Shirley Temple in A Little Princess.|
My grandparents had just given us a Shirley Temple DVD for Christmas. We hadn't even had a chance to watch it yet. After hearing the news this morning that Shirley Temple had passed away, we decided that tonight was the night to unwrap it. So we cuddled in for movies, popcorn, and, of course, Shirley Temples to drink.
You can read a little about the history of this drink and find a recipe here. We made the original version minus the maraschino cherry because sadly my children don't appreciate this delicacy!
Our DVD contained a short biography of this amazing lady. We discussed what being an ambassador is and the countries in which she served. (Government and Geography lessons slipped in there without Nan noticing!)
