Learn how to make a Roy Rogers drink.
Treat your kids to a taste of the Wild West with this simple Roy Rogers recipe. It's non-alcoholic – and a real crowd pleaser.
You Will Need
* An 8-ounce beverage glass
* 6 oz cola
* 2 to 3 teaspoons grenadine syrup
* Maraschino cherries and lemon wedges
* A stirrer
* A straw
Step 1. Fill glass with ice
Fill the glass with either crushed or cubes of ice, depending on your preference.
Step 2. Pour the cola
Next, pour about the cola into the glass, leaving some room at the top.
Step 3. Add grenadine and stir
Add the grenadine, stirring well to disperse the syrup evenly.
Step 4. Add garnish
Garnish with one or two maraschino cherries; add a lemon wedge for extra flavor.
Step 5. Serve
Serve with a straw. Consider setting a one-refill limit; kids are sure to find these drinks addictive!
Tip: Don't stir vigorously, which makes the cola foamy and increases the amount of dissolved ice. Instead, stir slowly and smoothly.
Fact: Roy Rogers, one of the most famous cowboys of all time, is remembered each year at the Portsmouth, Ohio, Roy Rogers Festival.
