Cruise Cocktail Recipe: Purple Rain

A popular cocktail on Carnival Cruise Lines and many others, Purple Rain is a refreshing blend of Gin and Cranberry Juice with splashes of Blue Curacao and Sweet and Sour Mix to bring out the purple in the rain. You'll see doves fly while you're enjoying this fun cocktail.

Get it? Doves fly! Yeah, we've had one too many of these already, we're partying like it's 1999. Thank you, thank you, we'll be here all week.


1 1/2 oz gin

3 oz Cranberry Juice

Splash Blue Curacao

Club Soda


Add ice to a cocktail pitcher

Add all ingredients to the shaker except the club soda

Stir well for at least 10 seconds

Strain into an Old Fashioned or Highball Glass.

Top with Club Soda, use a bar spoon to gently mix the soda into the drink.

The use of large ice cubes made especially for cocktail drinks means less water melt into your drink.
