  • Cook Time: 5 min
  • Total: 50 min

Real grenadine syrup is made from pomegranate juice and sugar; it is not a mixture of artificial colors and flavors like the syrups sold in liquor stores. 


  • 1 cup pomegranate juice, no sugar added
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 drops orange-flower water


  1. Place the pomegranate juice in a saucepan and place over medium heat.
  2. Once the juice begins to steam, after about 5 minutes, remove the pan from the heat and add the sugar.
  3. Stir the mixture until all the sugar has dissolved and the liquid becomes clear; approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Add the lemon juice, and orange-flower water and stir to combine.
  5. Let the mixture cool to room temperature before transferring to a container, tightly capping and placing in the refrigerator until use.
