Shirley Templar (Assassin’s Creed cocktail)
1.5 oz. gin
1.5 oz. grenadine
1 maraschino cherry

Patron: “Shirley Templar? What’s in it?”
Desmond: “The usual, I just add some gin.”
A Shirley Temple is traditionally a non-alcoholic drink. In Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, it is revealed that Desmond makes his own alcoholic version of the drink, dubbed a Shirley Templar, by adding gin. Photography by The Drunken Moogle.
