How to Make Grenadine

1. Buy a bottle of pomegranate juice. This is becoming more popular and should be easy to find. POM is a popular but very expensive brand. I was able to find some 100% organic pomegranate juice for much cheaper.

2. Bring 4 cups of pomegranate juice (the whole 32oz bottle) to a boil.

3. Lower heat and simmer until it reduces in half. You can let it reduce more that half if you want it to be a bit thicker. This process took about 15 minutes.

4. Add 2 cups of sugar and let it dissolve.

5. Chill.
