Author Notes: There’s a reason Shirley Temples are such a hit—the vibrant color, the vivid cherry flavor—but they can be awfully sweet. This grown up version is far more balanced and less cloying, keeping the grenadine but swapping the ginger ale or lemon-lime soda for club soda (as well as adding a good measure of bright flavored vodka). Don’t skip the lemon wheels in the pitcher, or the lemon wedge squeezed into each drink; the little burst of acid is a perfect counter to the sweeter elements of the vodka and grenadine. —Food52
