Growing up I always loved when I could get a Shirley Temple or a “Kiddie Cocktail”. As an adult I still love them just as much and often will choose a Shirley Temple over any other drink when we go out. Because of my love for this sweet drink, I was planning a baby shower and decided to make a Shirley Temple with a twist! This frozen cherry orange drink was a total hit and I’ve made it so many times since then that I decided it was time to share the frozen June Bug recipe with you!
None of the amounts are super specific, but I just use some Sierra Mist, Ice Cubes, Orange Sherbet, and Grenadine. I blend them until everything is smooth, and then pour into glasses.
Pretty simple huh?! Then I garnish with a orange slice and cherry. It would be adorable with a little drink umbrella too. Or maybe one of those swords with a few cherries on it? It’s a easy drink to just have some fun with!
If you wanted to serve this as a punch rather than a blended drink you could simply just mix the ingredients in a punch bowl and it would be delicious that way too!
This drink is a perfect bright citrusy combination that you’ll love. So next time you’re hosting brunch, a baby shower, or a girls lunch why not try this fun non-alcoholic drink?! (Honestly it would probably be good if you added liquor too… but that’s not what I was going for!)

I’ve passed my love of Shirley Temples down to the boys, so they were pumped when I decided to make this fun drink to share with them!
It’s always a special treat when they get to drink anything out of the “fancy glasses”!
Of course the cherries were a hit and no fancy drink would be complete without them!
