    Look, we all know that a Shirley Temple is a great drink – for kids. There’s no way you’ll ever catch me ordering one. There’s a better choice for a man. Ask for a Buck Rogers.

    Your waiter or waitress might ask what’s in it. Well, start with grenadine and add some Seven Up and you have it. Now, they might think that you want a Shirley Temple. NO. It’s Buck Rogers. Very different – it’s more manly.

     

    Update: Ken from Anthony’s calls it a Buckaroo Banzai. That’s completely legit.

    Grenadine is traditionally a red syrup. It is used as an ingredient in cocktails, both for its flavor and to give a reddish/pink tinge to mixed drinks. “Grenadines” are also made by mixing the syrup with cold water in a glass or pitcher, sometimes with ice.

    Please call Grenadine by its proper bro name, Grenade Juice.
