Black Infusions Dirty Shirley is the Drink for Fall

Dirty Shirley cans

September 28, 2022 – As we transition from summer fun to tailgate parties, watching the game with friends, early fall barbecues and other fall and winter socializing, we need a great cocktail that has its own vibe.  Black Infusions Dirty Shirley is just the thing.

You can mix it yourself or buy it ready-to-drink in an eye-catching tall brown can.  If you recall the Shirley Temple from your childhood, it was really sweet and syrupy, a pretty color thanks to grenadine, and had a maraschino cherry.  Perfect for a six-year-old.  This Dirty Shirley has cherries, lots and lots of cherries, but thankfully it tastes quite a bit different.

How come so many cherries?  Black Infusions uses their Dark Cherry Vodka, naturally infused with real cherries, free from artificial sugar, colors and ingredients.  In fact, their Dark Cherry Vodka is made with just two ingredients: vodka and fresh fruit.  Each bottle has 7lbs of fresh fruit!  That translates to a cup of cherries in every can!


Drink Black Infusions Dirty Shirley chilled or over ice. Recommended retail for four 12-ounce single serve cans is $13.99 and each can has an ABV of 6.9%.  Or make your own cocktail, which I can assure you is delicious and easy to make, using the following recipe.  A 750 ml bottle is priced at $31.99 and both the Dark Cherry Vodka and the RTD cans are widely distributed across the country.  Check here for more information.
