Recipe Tip

You can substitute ginger ale for lemon-lime soda.

In addition to simple carbohydrates and a huge amount of sugar per serving, this cocktail has nothing else, so, of course, there is no question of calling it a healthy drink. On the other hand, if you are training intensively and need a quick energy replenishment, you can use this cocktail as a kind of gainer or workout booster. However, since I am against the consumption of large amounts of sugar in any case, I still recommend looking for healthier options to increase your energy levels.

For a fun twist, try experimenting with different fruit juices to customize the Shirley Temple to your taste.
