Hollywood lost an icon yesterday. Shirley Temple died at the age of 85. (April 23, 1928 - February 10, 2014)Did you know that the actress didn’t want to be named after a cocktail? The Shirley Temple, made with lemon-lime soda, grenadine syrup and a maraschino cherry, was invented in the 1930’s in honor of the star. When manufacturers later tried to bottle the soft drink and use Temple’s name, she retaliated with legal action. “I will fight it like a tigress,” she told the New York Times. “All a celebrity has is their name.”
