Grenadine, what makes a grenadine you really want to use in your cocktails and mocktails? Our goal is to go natural: something without high fructose corn syrup and manufactured ingredients. Stirrings Authentic Grenadine: http://bit.ly/ZjyTxI Fee Brothers American Beauty: http://bit.ly/XHLdHw Stirrings comes in with a very straight forward sugar, pomegranate product without the preservatives and red #40. Fee Brothers American Beauty falls right in the middle with a bit more bright red "fake" action yet still not as highly sweet as a Rose's or other high fructose products. Where do you stand? How natural do you want to go?
