As many sources have shared, the Dirty Shirley has been unofficially named the 2022 Drink of Summer. What better way to create this delicious cocktail than with a Jolly Good Soda to pair? A Dirty Shirley is a classic and delicious drink that has been a fan favorite for quite some time, here is the Jolly Good Soda version!

Here’s the recipe:

  • ½ oz of Grenadine
  • 1 ½ oz of Vodka
  • 2 shots of Jolly Good Sour Pow’r Soda
  • 2 shots of Jolly Good Cherry Soda

If you’re wanting a non-alcoholic option, all you have to do is remove the Vodka from the recipe and there you have it… A delicious summer mocktail!
