Does anyone know of any drinks that are purple? I wanted to have a purple drink at my reception, but I don't know if they exist. Have you seen any? Please let me know.

You could try Purple Hooters.  They're pretty dark purple, maybe even more of a burgendy, but thats the only one I can think of.  You could also test out different kinds of alcohol with grape juice and come up with a new signature drink just for your wedding.

A great purple drink is a variation on a Cosmopolitan.  It's made exactly the same way as a regular Cosmopolitan except that instead of Cointreu (orange flavored liquor) substitute blue curacao (another orange flavored liquor).  Depending on the ratio of cranberry juice to blue curacao, you'll get something in the light violet range.

Another suggestion is to try making a Jolly Rancher martini.  Mix 1 part vodka (I actually like watermelon vodka for this one) with 2 parts Puckers grape schnapps.  Garnish with a Jolly Rancher lollipop.  You may have to look around for the Pucker's Grape.  The green apple and watermelon are usually the most common for apple martinis and watermelon martinis.

Thanks for the ideas. The purple cosmopolitan sounds great! I'm definitely going to have to try it at home Wink.

You can have any clear drink and have the bartender drop a purple skittle in each one.

I had this purple drink at a wedding, and we were all loving it!! It's a lychee cocktail, but it's made with Lichido (which is pink) and Curacao (which is blue) and vodka.   Adds up to a really stunning purple color.

Three other suggestions that are inexpensive:

Sour Grapes (But I would give it a more romantic name!)

1 1/2 oz vodka

1 oz black raspberry schnapps (Chambord is good, but Mr. Boston makes an inexpensive on for like $6 for a large bottle)

2 oz sour mix

Mix all ingrediants and pour into a tall glass.  Top off with Sprite or 7-UP

 

Irish kiss:

2oz Bailey's or other Irish creme

1oz black raspberry schnapps. 

Combine into a small glass and stir.

 

French Martini:

1 1/2 oz vodka

1/2 oz peach schnapps

1/2 oz black raspberry schnapps. 

Combine over ice, shake, strain into a martini glass and garnish with raspberries.
