Hi there everyone!!! I’m Gina from Kleinworth & Co. – a creative, lifestyle blog where I share fun treats, easy family dinner ideas, creative DIY projects & occasional photography tips. One thing I absolutely LOVE creating is beverages. Whether it be cocktail, mocktail or homemade liquor – beverages are just so much fun for me. So I thought I would bring you all this delicious Cherry Bomb Mocktail that the whole family can enjoy.

Cherry Bomb Mocktail


I don’t know about you – but cherry flavored anything tops my list of favorites. Do you love cherry flavored recipes or candies? I’m not normally a fruity sort of person – but something about cherry really gets my attention. I love making beverages, simple no bake treats using homemade cherry pie filling, tasty parfaits for breakfast & of course – homemade jam.

Cherry Bomb Mocktail


So when it comes to making fun beverages I always grab for the grenadine first because it certainly curbs my craving for cherry. One thing I really like to do is create both a cocktail & mocktail version of the drinks I make so that they can be enjoyed by all – no matter the preference or age. This Cherry Bomb is simple with only three ingredients for the mocktail version. But if you want to jazz it up you can add a few ounces of rum when mixing for the crowd.

This is definitely a favorite in this house.

We make it for game day, race day & festive holidays. It’s versatile & works great no matter the season.

    That a shirly temple with lime juice…

    • Gina Kleinworth

      It is similar in look Emily -however a Shirley Temple is actually ginger ale with just a splash of grenadine. This has a much stronger cherry flavor- so if you love cherry – this is definitely the drink for you.

      • Paige

        Actually, every Shirley Temple I’ve ever had was made with Sprite or 7-Up, never ginger ale.

  • kayl

    This is a typical Shirley Temple (minus the added lime juice) if you order it from a restaurant. Most restaurants don’t carry ginger ale, so if you order a Shirley Temple you’re most likely getting sprite and grenadine.
