Homemade Grenadine

Many recipes call for a splash, dash or float of grenadine. Purchased grenadine is easy to come by, but doesn’t quite carry the same fresh flavor feel of homemade grenadine. Making this little bar staple is a breeze with just a few simple ingredients.

Homemade Grenadine – Cheri Loughlin variation

2 cups Pomegranate Juice

1 cup Sugar

1 ounce Vodka

Place pomegranate juice and sugar in saucepan over low heat. Heat until sugar is completely dissolved and mixture just begins to simmer. Remove from heat. Add vodka for preservative purposes if desired. Allow mixture to cool completely. Place in container with lid. Refrigerate.

Fresh pomegranate juice may be substituted for good quality bottled pomegranate juice. Get even more creative with grenadine by adding spices such as cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, etc.

    Refrigerated; one to two weeks is general rule of thumb.
