To make standard grenadine, simply omit the chile. Use this to make a more complex tequila sunrise, Jack Rose, or a chile-pomegranate Paloma.


  • 1 cup pomegranate juice, such as Pom Wonderful brand
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 ancho chile, coarsely chopped or crumbled
  • peels of 1 orange


Step 1

In a small saucepan over high heat, combine the pomegranate juice and sugar. Cook, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add the chile and orange and bring to a boil; boil for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Remove from heat and strain into a jar. Let cool completely before using. Grenadine will keep, refrigerated, for up to one month.
