With summer upon us, there’s a lot of buzz about what many are saying is the big drink of the summer — dirty Shirleys. A dirty Shirley is a spiked Shirley Temple made with grenadine, vodka, and soda. For anyone interested in sampling this mature twist on a nostalgic beverage, we’ve got you covered. While many bars can make a dirty Shirley even if it isn’t on the menu, we’ve rounded up bars and restaurants in Hoboken + Jersey City that we’ve confirmed serve dirty Shirleys.
This is a growing list. If you know of more spots that serve dirty Shirleys, email email@example.com to let us know.
