The non-alcoholic Shirley Temple was, in an more sexist age, the mocktail of girls. The Roy Rogers, which substitutes cola for ginger ale, was a drink for boys. One hopes we have reached an age where the color of your cola is no longer a classification of gender.
1 1/2 teaspoon grenadine
Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour in grenadine, top with cola and stir. Garnish with the orange slice and cherry. Add a straw and serve.
Tasting notes: If you like cola, you’ll like the Roy Rodgers. Use your favorite from the cola wars.
