Recipe: Vanilla Dirty Shirley

One of my all time favorite cocktails is a Dirty Shirley, it is sweet and somewhat nostalgic of childhood…

This is the new and improved version featuring vanilla beans which really amps up this basic drink!


  • 1 1/2 shots of vanilla flavored vodka
  • Fresh, pitted cherries
  • 1/2 vanilla bean scraped
  • A few drops of grenadine
  • Sprite

Muddle cherries in glass until fully smashed, add vodka, vanilla bean, sprite, and grenadine.

Served shaken on the rocks.

Super easy.
