Pomegranate Grenadine Simple Syrup

Tis the season for pomegranates, I love using them in cocktails or spritzers.  It’s a tart sweet addition to a refreshing drink.

Pomegranate Simple Syrup - Recipe at cali-zona.com


Recipe:  Makes 1 Cup

  • 1 Fresh Pomegranate
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Purified Water


Cut the pom in half breaking away the juicy seeds from the pith.

Add the pom seeds, sugar and water to a small saucepan on med-low heat to dissolve sugar and express the juices from the seeds.

To express the most amount of juice try using a muddler it works great for smashing the seeds.

Once you see the sugar dissolve and the syrup getting darker in color remove from the heat.  Let sit about 15- 20 minutes to cool and infuse more of the  flavors.
