Purple Rain Recipe Friday Night Live


LIVE Cruise Q&A and “Purple Rain” Cocktail Party

Let’s celebrate Friday with some cruise chat and a Purple Rain recipe. Missing cruising? So are we. Badly. Let’s reminisce about the good times, and talk about what cruises we have our eyes on, when cruises resume!

Here’s the Purple Rain Recipe:

Purple Rain Recipe


  • 1 1/2 ounces Vodka or Gin
  • 1/2 ounce Blue Curacao
  • 1/4 ounce Grenadine
  • 2-3 ounces lemonade or homemade sour mix (we’ll use sour mix)


Rim the edge of your glass with a lemon wedge and purple sugar (Sugar + Blue Curaçao + Grenadine) In a shaker filled with ice, combine vodka/gin, lemonade or homemade sour mix, blue curaçao, and grenadine. Shake well. Strain mix into rimmed glass over ice and garnish with a lemon slice, blackberry, mint, or ANY pretty garnish you have on hand!
