Roy Rogers cocktail

A Roy Rogers is a non-alcoholic mixed drink made with cola (such as Coca-Cola) and grenadine syrup, garnished with a maraschino cherry. It is considered an acceptable cocktail drink for children (since there is no alcohol). For this reason, it may also be called a kiddie cocktail or simply a homemade Cherry Coke. Grenadine is almost always a non-alcoholic beverage, but there are versions that do contain alcohol.

It was named for the cowboy actor and singer Roy Rogers.
