Pomegranate Grenadine

Tequila Sunrise with DIY Pomegranate Grenadine

Grenadine was originally a simple cherry or pomegranate syrup, but like so many foods, it has fallen prey to artificial flavors and colors and the dreaded high fructose corn syrup. How to grow Pomegranate Wonderful.

Luck for us, it is incredibly easy to make your own grenadine to add a splash of color and flavor to your favorite cocktail. The best part is that this recipe has no added sugar

2 ripe pomegranates
1 cup water

Overripe pomegranates are best for this recipe because they'll have the most juice. Remove the seeds from the pomegranates. It's ok if you get a little of the white pith mixed in, it doesn't have to be perfect. Put the seeds in a small saucepan and cover with water. Simmer on medium low heat for 15-20 minutes, until the color has drained from the seeds and the liquid has thickened slightly. Pour through a fine mesh strainer, pressing firmly on the seeds to remove as much liquid as possible. Enjoy your sugar-free grenadine in Shirley Temples or Tequila Sunrises!
