Grenadine syrup is obtained from this fruit and is very popular, in particular for making cocktails. The San Francisco brand, made with a number of juices, is famous, but other brands can be used.
Here we pair pomegranate with various ideas for cocktails.
Try making a drink with vodka, orange juice and banana liqueur, plus grenadine syrup and slice of orange to decorate to glass.
Or try making a mojito (rum, soda water, lime juice, sugar and mint) with a dash of grenadine syrup; just make sure you don’t add too much and make the cocktail overly sweet.
And lastly, a mocktail: grenadine syrup, pineapple and orange juices, blended with raspberries and a few little leaves of basil to decorate.
