Let’s talk Grenadine.
Authentic Grenadine Syrup is made from Pomegranate. When I checked the ingredients on the store bought one I have been using it consisted of sugar, water, acid, flavours, colours and preservatives. Yuk.
This is a great reason to bother to make your own! When you make it, you can also control the sweet-to-tart ratio.
How I made it:
1 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice
1/4 cup caster Sugar
Juice of one lime
Place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to simmer until liquid halves. That’s it.
Now for the Margarita:
45mls Lime Juice
Barspoon homemade Grenadine
Jalapeño salt garnish .
