In Son Of Paleface (1952), Junior Potter (Bob Hope) downs a fiendish concoction called a Horse’s Neck at the Dirty Shame Saloon — as Jane Russell and Roy Rogers look on.
Not sure what Roy had. Maybe it was the mocktail named in his honor.
Ingredients: Ice, 8 ounces cola, 1/2 ounce grenadine, 2 maraschino cherries
Instructions: Fill a 12-ounce highball glass with ice and add the cola and grenadine. Stir gently with a cocktail spoon or straw to combine. Garnish with the maraschino cherries and serve.
It’s not much more than a fancy cherry Coke. But it sure is good.
