Grenadine Cocktails - 5 ways to use grenadine

Grenadine is a non-alcoholic bar syrup characterised by a flavour that is both tart and sweet, and by its deep red colour. The name grenadine originates from the French word grenade, which means pomegranate. In fact, grenadine was originally made using pomegranate juice, sugar, and water. 

Grenadine is any bartender's favourite add-in, as grenadine syrup is a key ingredient in many popular drinks. Check out our top 5 exciting recipes that feature this delicious and brilliant red syrup. Your cocktails will never be the same again!

 

Chocolate Cherry Bomb

Chocolate makes everything better! Close your eyes when you drink this cocktail, and you'll think it's a chocolate-covered cherry.

In a shot glass, carefully pour 1 cl of grenadine syrup followed by 1 cl of Morand chocolate syrup and 1 cl of cream. Drink in one, as if it were a shot of straight alcohol.

 

Williamine Sunrise

The Williamine Sunrise has a wonderfully sweet and fruity flavour and it looks gorgeous when you get that “sunrise” effect.

Add 45 ml of Morand Williamine and 150 ml of Orange Juice into a shaker along with ice and give it a good shake. Strain into a glass. Slowly add 30 ml of Morand grenadine syrup. Remember not to stir it so that you let the grenadine sink to the bottom - that's what creates the sunrise effect.

 

Grenadine Gourmet

Already missing the summer? If the answer is yes, Grenadine Gourmet is definitely the cocktail.

In a blender, add a scoop of milk ice cream, 1 peeled peach, a couple of strawberries, 2 cl of Morand peach syrup and 2 cl of Morand grenadine syrup. Add a scoop of crushed ice and mix. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with fresh strawberries.

 

Grapefruit Julep

Stir a teaspoon of honey into1 cl of vodka in the base of a shaker until the honey dissolves. Add 4 fresh mint leaves, 30 ml of Morand lime syrup, 50 ml of grenadine syrup and 1 cl of Morand pink grapefruit. Shake it all with ice and strain into a glass filled with crushed ice.

 

Queen Mary

Stuck with ordinary beer? Give a Queen Mary a try! In North America, a mix of grenadine syrup (one or two teaspoons) and beer is commonly known as the Queen Mary. This mixed drink is typically served in a pint glass.
