Purple Rain cocktail isn’t a homage to the man who’s name was once a symbol, but rather refers to the look as the final ingredient is poured into the glass…”raining” down in vibrant color. A sultry play on a simple gin and juice drink that is sure to seduce the evening and it’s sipper! So, mix, pour and enjoy like it’s 1999.
