This Roy Rogers Drink is a classic mocktail made with coca cola, a splash of grenadine, and garnished with maraschino cherries! If you're looking for a great mocktail, the sweet flavor of this 3 ingredient non-alcoholic drink is perfect!
Growing up, my parents ordered me the Roy Rogers Mocktail whenever we would go out to dinner! It was one of my favorite drinks, a drink that I still make to this day!
Despite its kid-friendly name, this fun cocktail is also perfect for adults!
A Roy Rogers cocktail consists of only three ingredients - cola, sweet grenadine syrup, and a maraschino cherry.(You've got to have the cherries on top - it's a must!)
It's very similar to a Shirley Temple drink, which uses lemon-lime soda instead of cola.
Serve it with ice cubes for a cool and refreshing drink!
A classic Roy Rogers drink is a famous mocktail named after, you guessed it - Roy Rogers! He was a 1950’s movie star and singer known for his roles in western films and tv shows. King of Cowboys was his nickname!
Also, if you're wondering if this is the same Roy Rodgers who has the famous fast food chain? You're also right on that too! The famous actor was quite the entrepreneur!
It's speculated that this easy mocktail is named after him because he didn't drink alcohol, often calling it the "boy version" (whatever that means!) of a Shirley Temple.
This drink has stood the test of time and has since become a well known drink all over the world!
Add cola and grenadine to a tall glass. Stir together and add ice cubes. That's it!
If you want to make it fancy, you can add a little lemon juice to cut a little bit of the sweetness. This is a very sweet drink, so if you prefer something a bit more subtle, you can either use less grenadine syrup or cut the sweetness by adding a little lemon juice or club soda (or both).
No, although very similar. Roy Rogers is comprised of cola and grenadine syrup while the Shirley Temple drink is made of grenadine and lemon lime soda.
