How to Make a Roy Rogers

Treat your kids to a taste of the Wild West with this simple Roy Rogers recipe. It’s non-alcoholic – and a real crowd pleaser.


  • Step 1: Fill glass with ice Fill the glass with either crushed or cubes of ice, depending on your preference.
  • Step 2: Pour the cola Next, pour about the cola into the glass, leaving some room at the top.
  • Step 3: Add grenadine and stir Add the grenadine, stirring well to disperse the syrup evenly.
  • TIP: Don’t stir vigorously, which makes the cola foamy and increases the amount of dissolved ice. Instead, stir slowly and smoothly.
  • Step 4: Add garnish Garnish with one or two maraschino cherries; add a lemon wedge for extra flavor.
  • Step 5: Serve Serve with a straw. Consider setting a one-refill limit; kids are sure to find these drinks addictive!
  • FACT: Roy Rogers, one of the most famous cowboys of all time, is remembered each year at the Portsmouth, Ohio, Roy Rogers Festival.
