Default Grenadine Syrup

Where can you buy grenadine syrup?
I used to drink grenadine water every summers when I lived in France and now my 5 yr old is having a birthday this saturday and I would love to make that special water.

Where can I find it and especially a good one (without corn syrup) ...
I heard it is most used in the US for mixed drinks... The liquor store then??


Thank you!

If you find one that isn't just corn syrup and red dye, please let me know!

Well, we always had Rose (or Rose's, can't remember which) but you might have to just take what you can get. I don't think it's a super popular beverage additive here. I mostly associate it with Shirley Temples

Quote:
A Shirley Temple is a non-alcoholic mixed drink made with ginger ale, grenadine syrup, and orange juice and garnished with a maraschino cherry and a slice of lemon.[1] The ginger ale is often substituted with 7 Up, Sprite, or similar lemon-lime soft drink, and the orange juice is commonly left out. It is often served to children dining with elders to let them share the experience of drinking a cocktail, which is why it is sometimes called a kiddie cocktail.

You can google it. Amazon has some. Or if you have a World Market near you I bet they carry it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

I will definitely try the juice and sugar version!

I need it for sat so ordering it online is kind of stretching it I think.... an no... no world market
Although now that you mention it, I bet you they have it at the "fresh market" in Asheville.. ...But I am not going that far this week.... and i might just make my own...


Thank you so much for all your input!
