The Royal Hawaiian Hotel at Waikīkī in Honolulu, Hawaii claims to be the inventor of the Shirley Temple cocktail, from the 1930s [cite web|url=http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2007/Sep/28/ln/hawaii709280385.html|title=The Honolulu Advertiser|accessdate=2007-09-28|work=The Honolulu Advertiser] .

Variations

*The original drink contains two parts ginger ale, one part orange juice, and a small splash of grenadine.
*The orange juice is usually omitted.
*A more typical, basic recipe involves a ratio of 8 oz ginger ale to 1 oz grenadine.
*Lemon-lime soft drink or club soda can be substituted for ginger ale, and maraschino cherry syrup can be substituted for grenadine syrup.
*Alcoholic variations on the recipe exist, which are often served in bars under the original "Shirley Temple" name, or called "Shirley Temple Black", "Dirty Shirley", "Robert Morris" and a "IZY Temple". A "Shirley Temple Black" consists of a "Shirley Temple" mixed with either gin or Johnny Walker Black; the name is a play on words involving the eponymous actress' married name.
*Roy Rogers: To be made similarly, just replace the ginger ale or lemon-lime soft drink with cola (Coca-Cola, Pepsi, RC Cola, etc...)
*At parties it is sometimes simply a combination of Cranberry Juice and Orange Juice.
