This cocktail is a perfect blend of sweet and refreshing. It's also sassy, making it the ideal drink to serve at your next party or get-together! The best part? You can make this recipe without the vodka so there will be some for the kids (and no one feels left out).

There are two key ingredients in a Dirty Shirley Cocktail: vodka and grenadine. To make this tasty drink, simply combine these two ingredients in a glass and enjoy. If you're looking for something extra special, try adding a splash of cranberry juice or lime juice to your cocktail. For an even more festive touch, garnish your drink with a cherry or slice of lemon or as we have in the pictures a lime.

  • If you prefer a stronger drink, then simply double your vodka amount to a total of 2 ounces.
  • Differentiating amounts of grenadine will play a huge part in the color, so do not be afraid to get your shade of red just right.
  • This recipe serves very well in a summer party punch bowl, especially if you fill the bowl with some cherries, lemons, and limes.

To make this one a little easier on the waistline use skinnygirl vodka for only 1 point 1 1/2 ounces perfect for a satisfying drink with lower points. most vodkas are 3 points for 1 1/2 ounces so be aware of the amount you are drinking so you can track your points accurately.
