Grenadine is by far the most common and versatile sweetener and flavouring in classic bar mixology. As hard as it is to believe, it has nothing similar with pomegranate syrup. Many cocktails contain Grenadine. It imparts a nice red colour and sweet, slightly tart taste that is very popular by children and adults. MONIN Grenadine syrup presents a flavour of red berries with a touch of vanilla and a bright red colour to enhance non alcoholic beverages, cocktails and even desserts, marinades, and several other recipes.
Brilliant red with orangey glints.
Slightly acidic taste, subtle combination between the roundness of vanilla and the tartness of red berries.
Beverage Innovation Directors tips
From a Shirley Temple to Tequila Sunrise, a lot of classics use grenadine syrup for the deep red colour it gives. I like to use it in flavoured sodas in complement to a fruit flavour as for example MONIN Passion Fruit syrup. This sweet gives a fresh feeling.
