    You can usually find both pomegranate molasses and orange blossom water at a mediterranean/middle eastern grocery store...something you may not realize your town has (often a restaurant has a couple aisles attached as a little "marketplace").

    That's a good question, Allegra. The easiest place to get orange blossom water is on Amazon - doesn't seem the easiest but it is - but smaller, select grocery stores may have it as well. Let us know of your success when the recipe comes to fruition!

    And because we are just that awesome, here is a link to it on Amazon:

    I'd love to try his Grenadine recipe--I've been looking for one--but even if I can find pomegranate molasses, where do I get orange blossom water?

    We reached out to Jeffrey Morgenthaler, and he said that fresh-fruit Batidas of many kinds are sold everywhere along Brazil's beaches. Some recipes call for coconut milk or sweetened condensed milk, but others don't. The word "batida" means "shake" in Portuguese, but in the sense of a shaken cocktail, not a milkshake. Hope you enjoy Jeffrey's version of the classic!

    Batida's normally have sweetened condensed milk in them don't they? Never seen one with soda. Batida does mean like "Shaken" or "milkshake" if I'm not mistaken.

    Still I do love Pomegranates! And a Pomegranate Batida might be nice.
