We are saddened by the loss of a musical legend, the larger-than-life 'Prince' Rogers Nelson. We would frequently say "That's my jam!" every time we heard "When Doves Cry", "Kiss", "I Wanna Be Your Lover", or ANY Prince song for that matter. He left his heart on the stage every time he performed, and we LOVED him for it. He was a visionary and an innovator in the music world, and his legacy will live on through his music.
In honor of the late, great Prince, here is a cocktail recipe that we've put together that can only be called one thing.
The Purple Rain Martini.
The Purple Rain Martini
Time: 5 minutes | Serves 1
- 2 oz Vodka (we prefer Kettle One®)
- 1 oz Blue Curaçao Liqueur
- 1 oz Grenadine
- 2 oz Pineapple Juice
- Splash of Club Soda
Pour all ingredients (except the Club Soda) in a shaker full of ice. Shake vigorously then strain into a chilled martini glass. Pour a splash of Club Soda, garnish with a lemon peel, or an edible flower like a purple Karma Orchid, turn up 'Purple Rain' and enjoy!
