Purple Rain

 

Purple Rain
 
Purple Rain is the title track to the album and movie of the same name.  It was the brainchild of Prince, and in 1985, it won two Grammy awards and an Oscar.  I wasn't able to find the creator of this cocktail, but it definitely turns out to be a brilliant shade of purple.  With Gin in the lead role, the supporting cast of this cocktail helps to deliver a drink worthy of its own award.  We hope you enjoy our featured cocktail... Purple Rain!
