Grenadine is traditionally a non-alcoholic red syrup. It is used as an ingredient in cocktails, both for its flavor and to give a pink tinge to mixed drinks. "Grenadines" are also made by mixing the syrup with cold water in a glass or pitcher, sometimes with ice.

The name "grenadine" comes from the French word grenade for pomegranate, as grenadine was originally prepared from pomegranate juice and sugar.
