Pomegranate Sunrise is a great non-alcoholic drink to make for a summer dinner party or BBQ. A delicious way to cool off and indulge a little bit!
I am so excited to share our Pomegranate Sunrise drink creation with you! This is our non-alcoholic version of a Tequila Sunrise — since there is no tequila or tequila flavoring in it we decided to change the name to “Pomegranate Sunrise.” Since it has been so hot here these last few weeks, we have been trying to come up with new summer drinks to help keep us cool. This has become a new favorite!
This Pomegranate Sunrise drink is so pretty. In addition, it is easy to make and tastes DELICIOUS! This is great one to make with friends for a summer dinner party or barbecue, or even just for yourself after a long day of work or chasing kids around. It is a delicious way to refresh and indulge a little bit!
What is Grenadine Syrup?
Grenadine syrup is made from pomegranate juice and also has a citrus component, usually orange or lemon juice. It has a tart, yet sweet flavor, and adds a splash of color. The deep red color of grenadine syrup gives popular drinks, like the Tequila Sunrise and the Shirley Temple, their beautiful, rosy hues. Grenadine syrup can be found in most grocery stores in the drink mixers section.
Cheers! More Drinks To Try
Sometimes it is fun to just have a fancy beverage when you are hosting friends for an evening of chit chat. The Tropical Slush is the perfect summer thirst-quencher complete with pineapple, coconut and lime. Make it even fancier by serving it in a hollowed out pineapple. Or if you’re looking for something cool and refreshing that will entertain your kids too, you’ll love the 5-Minute Slushies recipe. Its like magic how much kids love them! Just like you and everyone will love these Mint Julep drinks — a copycat from Disneyland. With a little bit of mint, lemon and lime flavors, they are beautiful and refreshing.
You also have to try the amazing Harry Potter Butterbeer from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It tastes just like what they serve in the park. And its so eary to make!
