In grenadine, alcohol is not one of the components. Grenadine is a delicious crimson syrup derived from pomegranates and currants that is widely used in bar cocktails. The syrup also has a slight tartness to it.
The word “grenadine” comes from the French word “grenade,” which literally means “pomegranate.” The Sea Breeze and the Tequila Sunrise are two popular grenadine-based cocktails. Grenadine is also used in the Shirley Temple, a non-alcoholic cocktail. Each serving of grenadine contains 75 calories and 18.9 grammes of sugar. Grenadine can also be used to make pink lemonade. Alternatively, the syrup can be combined with cold water and served over ice.
