Grenadine (grenadine syrup) is blood-red, strong syrup made from pomegranates. It is the number one among fruit syrups, and is used in many cocktails not only for sweetening, but also to give them a red color. The best pomegranates available in India are the Kandahari variety (which may now become cheaper one hopes). Very red, very juicy and very sweet. Juice can be made in a Sumeet Asia Kitchen Machine.
