Grenadine is also a sweet mixer for alcoholic drinks made from pomegranates. Pomegranates are famous for being in a few Salvador Dali paintings, as well as being responsible for Persephone being stuck in Hades for one season out of the year, thereby causing winter.

That sweet red syrup that bad bartenders pour too much of into your drinks. The best Grenadine Syrup is made by Roses. People who don't like alcohol, but like to get drunk, like a lot of this stuff in their drinks because extremely sweet or sour flavors cover up the alcohol taste. People like me prefer to stay away from this sweet stuff and get on to drinking Knob Creek straight-up. However when Grenadine is called for please use it sparingly, as a touch can enchance the flavor of many good drinks.

Grendaine is (supposedly) made from pomegranate however, if one has ever tasted pomegrantate concentrate, you could surmise that the primary ingredient in grenadine is sugar (or high fructose corn syrup).
