Can this stuff be a grenadine substitute?

I would like to make these creepy shots
. If I use the juice/syrup from a jar of maraschino cherries instead of buying actual grenadine, will the effect still work?

I assume the taste won't be terribly affected (or will it?), but I would like to know if the "bloody" effect will be the same, or if there will be an issue with the relative viscosity of the liquids.
Just to clarify what stuff I'm trying to substitute for grenadine, I have two jars of maraschino cherries, and I'd like to use the bright red juice/syrup/whatever liquid they are floating in. (That sounds gross, but what can I say? I get a thrill out of stretching a buck!)
