Why Make Your Own Grenadine?

If you have never made homemade grenadine, you are in for a real treat! Most grenadines are basically just corn syrup and food coloring, and lack any real tart fruit tastes. The taste of the pomegranate should be bold and really liven up your drink recipes. We decided to take it a step further and infuse our grenadine with our Chim Chim Cherry tea. 


This white tea packs a punch of flavor with creamy vanilla, tart cherry, and vibrant hibiscus flowers. These flavors make the traditional grenadine even more complex especially with the touch of vanilla to round out the sour hibiscus and pomegranate. 


And while this may not necessarily be ‘healthy’ since it is still high in sugar, you are at least getting antioxidants that are lacking in the store bought variety. The pomegranate juice packs in antioxidants plus it is high in vitamin C, vitamin K, and potassium. Adding in the white tea adds even more antioxidant power and some anti-inflammatory effects.
