Is grenadine an alcoholic drink?
Grenadine syrup is a non-alcoholic pomegranate-flavoured mixer, made from pomegranate juice and sugar, used to give mixed drinks a distinctive flavour that is both tart and sweet, to add a dash of vibrant, rich red colour. It gets its name from the French word for pomegranate, ‘grenade’ (and yes, hand grenades are named after pomegranates too), and first became a fashionable ingredient in American cocktails and drinks recipes in the 1910s.
