Grenadine is a fruit syrup quintessential to French childhood. That's it in a nutshell! Though perhaps I could go into just a little more detail....
Grenadine is a syrup used to make drinks (cordial or squash for children, certain cocktails for adults). The word "grenadine" comes from the French word for pomegranate "grenade" but while the syrup might have been made originally with pomegranates I couldn't find a single make that still includes this exotic fruit. Nowadays grenadine is made up of a mix of red berry fruits such as raspberry, red currant, elderberry, black currant and strawberry, with a hint of vanilla. And unfortunately plenty of sugar.
