Alcohol is not one of the ingredients in grenadine. Grenadine is a sweet red syrup commonly used in bar drinks and is made from pomegranates and currants. The syrup also has a bit of a tart flavor.
Grenadine got its name from the French word "grenade" which means "pomegranate." Popular cocktails that include grenadine are the Sea Breeze and the Tequila Sunrise. The Shirley Temple, a non-alcoholic drink, is also made with grenadine. Grenadine has 75 calories per serving and 18.9 grams of sugar per serving. Pink lemonade can also be made with grenadine. The syrup can also be mixed with cold water and served on ice.
