To make the grenadine syrup at home gather the above ingredients and place them together in a saucepan.

First in a sauce pan combine the pomegranate juice and sugar and then bring the pomegranate juice and sugar to a slow boil until the sugar is dissolved.

While it's slowly boiling be sure to stir it constantly.

Next reduce the heat and cover it after the sugar has dissolved.

Then while covered simmer it for 10 to 15 minutes and every few minutes stir it occasionally.

Then allow it to cool off and after it's cooled off you can pour it into a small decanter or bottle with a tight-sealing lid.

Before sealing the bottle add a dash or two of orange flower water.

Then seal the bottle up and shake it for a minute or so to mix it together.
