Pete's Purple Rain

I've seen various versions of this online and at restaurants but no matter what, it always sounded good. So here's our take on the fruity drink known as "Purple Rain." P.S. Every time we have this drink my husband sings Prince's Purple Rain so I'm humming it as I type this...

You'll need:
Light Rum (we used a mix of pineapple and coconut, but if you want a stronger alcohol, less fruity flavor go with plain) - 1 oz each
Chambord (a raspberry flavored liquor) - 1 oz
Blue Curacao - 1/2 oz
Grenadine - 1/2 oz
Cranberry Juice - 3 oz
Pineapple Juice - 3 oz




Pour all your ingredients into a shaker over ice and shake it up. Unfortunately the camera picked up the red tones in the drink but in reality, it's a gorgeous deep purple shade (hence the name). It's another one of those perfect summer BBQ drinks (because I haven't given you enough) and if you like drinks that are aesthetically pleasing this one will make you happy. Let me know if you've ever tried a version of this! XO
