Just saw this advertised and was curious if anyone had tried it: MONIN TROPICAL BLEND SYRUP, 750 ML BOTTLE http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00365K9H0/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_awdm_Wzx0sb1JQM22Y

Not sure what you would use this particular flavor for
but Monin syrups are very good quality, a bit on the sweet side
I prefer them over other store bought syrups.

I tried it a few years ago. I think I remember passionfruit and pineapple being the predominant flavors.

You need to make some of these juices for yourself once you do
you will see why they cost so much and why juice makers can't make
good juice and sell it to make money.
Most store bought juices have pear or apple juice in them to off set the
cost of say real pomegranate or passion fruit.
Grenadine is mostly cherry juice these days.
Pomegranate is in season now this would be a good one to start with.
They do go bad faster because they don't have the additive that help them keep longer,
but you can freeze them for long time use.

PS Passion fruit is costly so this one is hard to make and you only get a small
amount of juice from each piece of fruit.
Don't add water to the seeds just sugar and they will start to bleed after an hour or so.
Then I use cheese cloth and squeeze out juice by hand.

Once you make your own juice you will be blown away by the difference.
Good luck.

One person on this board was using it as a substitute for fassionola:
