Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Tips for measuring: 1 tablespoon = 1/2 liquid oz 2 tablespoons = 1 liquid oz 4 tablespoons = 2 liquid oz = 1/4 cup
  • tip 2
    The grenadine syrup is much heavier than the orange juice mixture, so it should naturally sink to the bottom of the drink. Just make sure to pour it straight down the middle of the glass slowly, and give it a few minutes to sink.
