(n.) Historically made from tart-sweet pomegranate juice and sugar, grenadine is perhaps the most enduring in the category of concentrated fruit syrups that were popular cocktail ingredients in the late 19th century. The name most likely comes from France, a translation of the word pomegranate (grenade), which is also the country that cocktail historians speculate first gave rise to the syrup’s popularity. Today, grenadine makes an appearance in cocktails such as the Pink Lady and non-alcoholic drinks such as the Shirley Temple. A note of caution: while commercial grenadines are made from high-fructose corn syrup and dye—i.e. not actual pomegranates—there are some quality artisanal examples from the likes of Small Hand Foods that have come to market recently.
