Shirley Templar | Assassin’s Creed

Fun fact: Shirley Temple actually hated the drink that was named after her—but she might have been fond of this alcoholic version invented by Desmond Miles himself.


You’ll need:

  • 1/4 oz grenadine
  • 1 oz gin
  • 4 oz lemonade
  • 4 oz ginger ale
  • 1 strawberry (optional)


  • In a tall glass or Collins glass, build ingredients over ice.
  • Stir for 25 seconds to chill.
  • Garnish with strawberry.
  • Serve.

The Shirley Templar is drawn directly from the Assassin’s Creed game. Desmond Miles describes it as an alcoholic Shirley Temple. That is, “the usual, I just add some gin”.
