homemade grenadine

Shirley Temple Kit with homemade grenadine!  What could be more Christmasy than the Canadian version of the Shirley Temple drink?  2 parts ginger ale and 1 part orange juice, over the rocks and with a splash of grenadine?  Lose the maraschino cherries, unless you can find some without artificial dye (FD&C Red 40) and garnish with pomegranate seeds and a slice of orange instead.  (The grenadine to the left is a double recipe of one in the above link.)

A sweet little gift like this could include 4 cocktail glasses and all the components of the drink: homemade grenadine, excellent ginger ale, fresh orange juice and a couple organic oranges.  (This also looks like a great recipe for grenadine.)
