Homemade Grenadine Recipe

Recipe by James Collier + Danny Alas
Grenadine has traditionally been made with pomegranates, and similar to pomegranate syrup
and pomegranate molasses, it combines fresh juice with sugar and cooks down to a
concentration that’s vibrant, tart, and just a little sweet. It’s a staple in a Shirley Temple or
Tequila Sunrise, and even brightens any fizzy pour of cold soda water!
YIELD: 1 cup
PREP TIME: 1 minute
COOK TIME: 35 minutes

● 3 cups fresh California pomegranate juice
● ⅓ cup granulated sugar

Combine the pomegranate juice and sugar in a wide-bottomed saucepan or pot–similar to

frequently as it thickens. Remove from the heat when the mixture lightly coats the back of a
Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes, then transfer to a sterilized glass bottle or jar, and store in
the fridge!
