The eight islands off the coast of California are also called the Channel Islands. Five of them, and the surrounding ocean make up the Channel Islands Nat’l Park. Santa Catalina is the only permantly populated island.

How does one get the word “grenadine” from “pomegranate?”

You could google it, but I'll help you out


The name grenadine originated from the French word grenade which means pomegranate, with pomme meaning apple and granate derived from the Italian word for seeds.
Grenadine was originally prepared from pomegranate juice, sugar, and water.

Thanks!

I’ve made real grenadine at home, with 100% pomegranate juice and sugar. Didn’t like it. It didn’t do much to enhance or add to the flavor of my tequila sunrises, and it made them look more like Los Angeles smog than a Mexican sunrise!

My recently departed was a 'Sunrise' fan, but I myself am a straight tequila person..... no salt, and the lime goes in the Corona bottle, 'tho I'm not much of a beer person either......
