From mocktails to a cocktail, here are three famous and flavourful grenadine cocktails.
Do you know what grenadine is? It is a non-alcoholic bar syrup that is most commonly used in a variety of cocktails. A traditional grenadine is made with garden-fresh pomegranates, which gives this syrup a bright red colour. Grenadine comes from the French word ‘Grenade’, which means pomegranate. Grenadine is a well-known bar syrup for both its mix of sweet and tarty flavours and the bright red colour tinged with pink. So get ready with a funky cocktail glass to blend some popular drinks and extend your list of cocktails.
1. Shirley Temple
A Shirley Temple (non-alcoholic) is a drink that a Californian restaurant bartender invented initially. Making a Shirley temple is just as easy as you can think of. All you need is ginger ale and orange juice to be mixed with a fair splash of grenadine. Then, garnish it with a maraschino cherry at the end!
2. Roy Roger
Roy Roger is another popular variant of the Shirley cocktail, which is also a non-alcoholic beverage. It's a great drink for children to slurrp on as it's made with kids favourite cola and of course with a mix of grenadine to be poured at last. The drink has been named after an American actor and singer called out by the same name—bluff your kids by serving them this drink that gives the feel and looks of a cocktail.
3. Jack Rose
Jack Rose is a tasteful cocktail, the roots of which can also be traced back to the early 19th century. The drink wasn't just a favourite of ordinary people but was loved by many brilliant minds. This cocktail is one of the classics of its time, although it may have lost its relevance and recognition over time. Have you liked to make it at home? Blend applejack, lime juice and grenadine.
