ROYGVIG Signature Cocktail Series: Purple

We’re nearing the end of our journey on a color-wheel tour of inspirational signature drinks. This week it’s all shades purple- from natural ingredients to flavored ones- you’re sure to find one you’ll love! Cheers!

The Purple Rain is a delectable  lesson in color wheel 101: what do you get when you mix grenadine (red) with curacao (blue?) If you guessed purple- you get the gold star! Deepest purple- jewel tone brides will love this one!

This cocktail is a mix of equal parts vodka and curacao (about 1 and 1/4 oz). Add 2 oz. grenadine and pineapple juice and finish with a a splash of lime juice.

For a lighter side of purple- try a Lavender Cosmopolitan: it’s equal parts mandarin vodka, parfait amour, cranberry juice, and a lime!

Looking for a bit more natural look? Go straight for blueberries! The Crystal Cocktail is as simple as 1 1/3 vodka paired with 2/3 oz. blueberry liqueur. Pop a blueberry or two inside and garnish with a lemon twist for an all natural pucker.. delish!

On a smaller scale than the image shown, you’ll be the super hero for serving.. The Superhero!

This drink is simple to make, and a simple to enjoy!! Combine 2 parts vodka, 2 parts tequila  with 3 parts blueberry syrup, and garnish with a raspberry!
