Homemade Pomegranate Simple Syrup

Making your own flavored simple syrups to use in cocktails is so easy that it will make you think twice about buying a mass produced bottle from the store. Beyond how easy it is, what I like most is that it only has three ingredients -- water, sugar and fruit.

No artificial anything! 

I like to put several teaspoons in sparkling white wine, champagne or rum.

Homemade Pomegranate Simple Syrup 
by Michelle Maskaly, The Adirondack Chick

2 cups  fresh pomegranate seeds
1 cup water
1 cup sugar

Combine all the pomegranate seeds, water and sugar in a medium pot, stir and bring to a boil. Stir, reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes.

Remove from heat and pour the fruit and liquid into a strainer over a large bowl. Discard the seeds and let the syrup cool.

Store in a sealed container or pour into ice cube trays to use in various drinks.

  1. That's sounds good. I bet it would taste good in a smoothie too.

      I was in Charleston, SC recently and had a fabulous brunch at 82 Queen. One of their trademark cocktails is a Pomegranate Mimosa. When I asked the ingredients, I was told champagne, orange juice, and pomogranate liqueur. Tried that but it didn't work. I finally called the manager and found that the actual ingredient is pomegranate simple syrup. Now I can't wait to have a fantastic brunch on my own patio!

  2. A belated thank-you for sharing this post with WanderFood readers at Pomegranate syrup sounds delicious! I'd like to try mixing it with other fresh juices.
