The Purple Rain mixed drink is the cocktail of the day for June 7 when in 1958 Prince Rogers Nelson, better known as Prince or the Love Symbol, was born. One of his greatest hits was of course purple rain.
The purple rain drink refers also to other drinks. One of those drinks is a sort of variation of the highball long island iced tea. For this purple rain drink we replace the cola with lime and lemon soda. The triple sec is replaced with chambord.
The other version of the purple rain drink is made with lemonade, blue curaçao, vodka and grenadine. This purple rain drink comes from the fact that the grenadine is added in the end. It sinks through the curaçao blue and gives the idea of a purple rain. All this info can also be found on wikipedia.
The purple rain drink is told to be a known cocktail in the Caribbean area. It is not clear who is the inventor of the purple rain drink, the only reference we found is the link with the Caribbean area.
