If you want to know where to go for the best Shirley Temples in the country, just six-year-old Leo Kelly––the Shirley Temple King! The suddenly Insta-famous kiddo is an undisputed aficionado whose now-viral video clips feature reviews of the grenadine-packed non-alcoholic family fave.
The pint-sized reviewer rates the drinks on his own scale of one to 10, also giving his viewers commentary on the grenadine vs. Sprite ratio, cup choice and how many cherries are included.

Even though the six-year-old’s parents started The Shirley Temple King Instagram page last summer, Leo’s reviews only recently took-off. After a review of Longhorn Steakhouse’s Shirley Temple went viral on Twitter, Leo’s IG page went from 300 followers to well over 21,000.
If you’re wondering how the Kelly family came up with this genius (and totally helpful) idea, dad, Tom, told People, “We were on vacation at Gurney’s in Newport, Rhode Island, when Leo ordered a Shirley Temple at the pool and said ‘Dad I think I have an idea’…and the rest is history.”
