Homespun Grenadine

July 7, 2016

The classic mini-bar must-have, only not as sickly saccharine as the stuff in the bottle.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Yields: 1 1/2 cups


2 cups pomegranate juice

1 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp. lemon juice


1Place 2 cups of pomegranate juice in a small saucepan.

2Add water, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil.

3Once at a boil, drop to a high simmer. As it cooks, skim any scum that rises to the top.

4Allow to reduce by half. Pour into a mason jar. Allow to come to room temp, seal, apply pretty label and store in fridge for a few months. I betcha it won't last that long.

5To make a Roy Rogers: Fill a glass with ice. Pour a big tablespoon of grenadine over ice. Fill glass with your favorite cola. A favorite of cowboys young and old.

Drizzle into cocktails, over ice cream or even waffles.
