Purple drank

No, not that purple drank. 🙂 This is a cocktail posted by “2 Skinny Drunks” that I saw on Facebook, courtesy of Joe’s mom! (Hi!) It is called “Bleed Purple,” and it is the perfect drink for anyone looking to support the Ravens tomorrow during the Har-Bowl Super Bowl!

Bleed Purple (single serving)
3 oz Vodka
1 1/2 oz Cranberry cocktail
1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
1/2 oz sour mix
1/2 oz of lemon lime soda (7-up or Sprite) or Champagne for an extra kick

Gently shake and serve over crushed ice.

Add more Blue Curacao to get your drink to the perfect shade of purple. And if you have (or can find) purple sugar, rim the edge of your glass for the perfect touch!

If you’re watching calories or want the virgin version of this drink, swap out the vodka for Diet Sprite. Tonight, I didn’t want too much liquor (saving that for tomorrow), so I substituted half of the vodka for Sprite. This drink is straight candy, so be ready for the sugar rush! To cut the sugar, add a splash of fresh lemon juice.

Enjoy while doing your best impression of the squirrel dance!
