    You are never to use more than a 1/2 oz of Grenadine in drinks.

    What you need to do is put a spoon down into the glass upside down, then pour the grenadine down the back of the spoon and it will get deposited on the bottom of the drink and slowly rise up through the orange juice, creating a sunrise effect.

    If you pour a bit less than an oz you do know that is 3/4 oz right?

    3/4 oz is way too much grenadine, I do add the grenadine last, but I just pour in a little bit, probably not even more than an oz, and I add a cherry to it :)

    I have to agree with JMay. I tried it with 3/4 OZ and it seems to be a bit much. I tried it again with 1 teaspoon which tasted better.
