NEWSFLASH*** Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away! We’ve pulled together cupid approved cocktails to complete your evening. Grenadine is a common ingredient in all of these recipes. FamousFoods.com suggests using Stirrings Authentic Grenadine Bar Ingredient. Unlike common grenadine mixes that are made with corn syrup and red #40 this mix uses crushed pomegranate seeds that reveal a bold red, sweet, with a bright pomegranate flavor. And of course you only want the best for you sweetheart so make sure to purchase Stirrings. The recipes we chose are perfect before, during, and after dinner. If it’s not quite 5 o’clock yet the Cherry Bomb is a delicious non-alcoholic drink. The very festive Sweetie Martini is made with white chocolate liqueur and will make a sweet after dinner drink for you and your loved one. My personal favorite is Jamaican Me Crazy made with rum, grenadine, and fresh juices. See all of the Grenadine Valentine’s Drinks below; click through to find the whole recipe.

More About Stirrings Grenadine
Over the last 40 years, commercial grenadine has devolved from its noble origins to nothing more than red #40 and corn syrup. Derived from the Spanish word “Granada,” meaning pomegranate, grenadine was made by crushing luxuriant pomegranate seeds and blending them with sugar. Stirrings has gone back and created the product the way it was intended: bold red, sweet, with a dazzling pomegranate flavor.
