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 Tequila
15mls Cointreau
45mls Lime Juice
Barspoon homemade Grenadine
Jalapeño salt garnish .
