A Purple Rain Cocktail in a coupe glass with a twist of lemon on the rim.

Purple Rain Cocktail


Sweet yet delightfully tart, this Purple Rain Cocktail will take you back to your younger days, listening to your ‘Walkman’ and cruising in your boyfriend’s ‘84 Firebird convertible. This cocktail is purple, fruity, and very refreshing. It’s perfect for game day, girl’s night out, Halloween, Easter, or any evening you desire a tasty libation.



2 ounces vodka

1 ounce blue curacao liqueur

1 ounce cranberry juice

1 ounce pineapple juice

1 ounce grenadine 

½ ounce lime or lemon juice

Large peel of zest as garnish


Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice.

Add the vodka, Blue Curacao, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine.

Shake until the outside of the shaker becomes icy cold.

Strain the liquid into a martini, coupe, or an old fashion glass.

Squeeze the lemon twist with your fingers and run it around the rim of the glass.

Float the twist in the cocktail.
