Homemade Grenadine

This is a wonderfully easy alternative to store-bought grenadine. And it makes lovely mocktails as well as cocktails.

  • 2/3 c pomegranate juice (unsweetened)
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 2 tsp pomegranate molasses (optional)
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vodka or brandy (optional: if you want to keep it for up to 6 months, refrigerated. The alcohol helps preserve it.)

In a small pan over medium heat, bring the pomegranate juice, sugar, and pomegranate molasses (if you’re using it) to a boil, then simmer, stirring until the sugar is dissolved (1-2 minutes). Stir in the lemon juice (and vodka, if you’re using it). Cool and then refrigerate, if you’re not using it immediately.
