This is a fun drink for kids. The cherries look fantastic as a garnish as displayed. It tastes great, too. It is a bit bothersome making the ice cubes in advance and storing them if you need several batches. If that ok for you, it is easy and worth a try.

You boil them together so that they are blended well and so that your cubes are clear not cloudy.

Why does the water need to boil, just to add grenadine syrup? Seems pointless.

I'd say like seven-up, sprite, or lemon-lime soda.

What do you call a clear citrus soda? I'm looking for a punch for a children's Christmas dinner table
