    Re: Rose's Grenadine

    I haven't had a Zima in about 20 years, but there are a lot of worse things in the world.

    Re: Rose's Grenadine

    Making your own grenadine is super-easy too, if you can find pure pomegranate juice, and imparts a plant-y freshness that Rose's super-sticky-sweet process lacks. Just make a simple syrup with 1:2 normal white sugar and pomegranate juice instead of water and reduce it to half or less on the stove. Tasty!


    The Ward 8 is my favourite grenadine-and-whiskey drink, and I usually go a little more heavy on grenadine than the traditional old-timey recipes.

    Re: Rose's Grenadine

    When I make mine, I just measure equal parts white sugar and POM 100% juice. Shake the shit out of it and top it with 0.5oz of Everclear. For a few cocktails I have made a cinnamon, allspice and clove grenadine that I heated just till the sugar was dissolved but I cant stand the taste of it if its been hotter than that. No one should ever use Rose's products, homemade version are vastly superior and easy.

    Re: Rose's Grenadine

    Rose's products have large quantities of high fructose corn syrup in them. Health effects aside, HFCS didn't used to taste bad to me until someone introduced me to Fee Brothers grenadine. Now Rose's tastes like plastic to me. Once your Rose's runs out, give Fee Brothers a try - I like it. You may have to order it depending on where you live; Amazon carries it.
