Real Grenadine

Jacquilynne | Sep 24, 2007 12:42 PM

I was in Whole Foods yesterday, and came across a product called 'Pomegranate Martini Mix' from a company called Stirrings-- pomegranate juice and simple syrup. Which is, uh, grenadine, basically. Except, of course, that these days, grenadine is mostly HFCS and various artificial flavours that could be most accurately described as "red".

I bought the bottle at Whole Foods, but it was a) expensive and b) quite weak compared to other bottles of grenadine (though the other bottles of grenadine I've used haven't had actual pomegranate juice in them).

So, hounds, are there actual brands of grenadine out there that contain actual, real pomegranate flavouring? I can live with expensive, but I would really like real.
