Homemade Grenadine (Liquid Culture Edition)

Today Liquid Culture brings you some REAL grenadine to step up your home bartending game.

A lot of people don’t know this, even I didn’t know while bartending, but grenadine is made up of fresh pomegranate juice, boiled down with sugar. From their, it is completely comprised of the chefs imagination. I’ve seen mixes with different spices, Pomegranate Molasses, Citrus, Rose Water and more. So I decided to make one that is unique to Liquid Culture and that my community can be proud of! Save yourself from buying the store bought neon red mess, this is 100 times better and you won’t believe the difference it makes to your cocktail game. Enjoy!
