#TGIF : PURPLE LUXE'S DRINKS EDITION
Do you make or order the same drinks over and over again? We have some tasty and fun ones we want you to try! Since we love all things purple, here are some of our favorite drinks with a purple twist. Enjoy and please give us your feedback!
Pink lavender lemonade
6 cups water, divided
½ cup sugar
¼ cup honey
3 Tbsp dried lavender
2 cups lemon juice
Lemon slices and lavender petals for garnish
Blue or purple food coloring (optional)
- Over medium heat, combine two cups of water and sugar, bringing to a boil until sugar is dissolved. Turn off of the heat and stir in lavender and agave nectar.
- Allow mixture to steep for 2 hours (less if you want less of a lavender taste). Strain the liquid, pressing the lavender down to make sure you get all of those juices into your mixture!
- In a large pitcher, combine freshly squeezed lemon juice, lavender mixture and water.
- Feel free to add a couple drops of blue or purple food coloring if you want more color than the lavender provides. Makes the lemonade especially cute for those ladies’ brunches! Serve over ice. If you want an extra punch, add a little Vodka. Voilà!
1 oz. Raspberry Vodka
1 oz. Coconut Rum
1/2 oz. Raspberry Liqueur
Garnish: Cherry (Optional)
Pour the raspberry vodka, the coconut rum and the raspberry liqueur into a glass with ice. Fill it with pineapple juice.
1-1/2 oz Grape Vodka
1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz Sour Mix
A splash of Club Soda
A slice of Lime - for garnish
Shake grape vodka, cranberry juice and sour mix with ice in a cocktail shaker.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with a splash of club soda and garnish with a lime wedge.
Drinks are good on a hot summer day, while out with friends or just to relax after a long week at work! Tell us what you think of our suggestions and share your recipes with us!
