How to Make a Roy Rogers


Cocktails are decidedly an adults-only pleasure, but it's completely understandable if children -- and non-drinking adults -- feel left out of the fun. The vivid colors and garnishes of cocktails are much more alluring than a plain glass of soda, especially if they're served at the same time. The solution to "cocktail envy" is virgin cocktails, or mocktails. One of the oldest and best-known is the Roy Rogers, named for the legendary singing cowboy. It's colorful, and very easy to assemble.
