Orange Dirty Shirley

Sharing is caring!

Take your favorite flavors and twist up a new cocktail! The Orange Dirty Shirley is just what you need!

Make this Orange Dirty Shirley cocktail today - light and refreshing with all the flavors of a Shirley Temple you loved as a kid!Some drinks just need to be done and done again.  Everyone knows about a Shirley Temple right?  A lot of us know about a Dirty Shirley (I just love the name – it’s pretty fun to order).  Basically a Dirty Shirley (or a Shirley Temple Black if you prefer) is a grown up version of the Shirley Temple!  YUM!


Some drinks I make require more than one bottle of liquor…not the Orange Dirty Shirley! The great thing about this cocktail is that you only need a bottle of orange vodka, sprite and grenadine. You might want to include a couple of cherries too! It’s so delish and so simple to make – you’ll love sprucing up your happy hour with the Orange Dirty Shirley!

Happy Hour is sacred in my house so I like to change it up. Here’s some of my other favorites that I sip on:

The Amaretto Aloha Cocktail sweeps you away to the tropics! A simple beverage to make, make a pitcher for your next party!

So many delicious choices…that’s the way I like to have a good happy hour – different flavors, different snacks, all the fun! Can’t ask for anything more than that right? I love a night where it’s good drinks, good convo and I don’t need much more than that. What do you love to do for a Friday Night at home?

Bottoms up!

    Do you think I could use regular vodka and add some orange juice for a similar flavor?

    Ok. Number 1, I LOVE your “name”. My husband once accused me of trying to being “Supermom”. Snarkster that I am, I looked at him and said “Why, thank you!” He walked out sputtering. SCORE. This drink looks like what need, and to be sitting in my swing bed at the beach. Hmm, thought about it, nope, will do just fine here, on my couch. Give this one a shot. Water moccasin. 1 part Southern Comfort, 1 part peach schnapps, over ice, fill with clear mixer. I use sprite. Here is a giggle. A friend that I introduced to WM told me that he had a Copperhead. He said that he ran out of sprite and used coke. OMG, I fell out laughing. It is a sipper. This will bite you on the butt. Love from South Alabama. Now where is my damn cape?
