Remembering Prince: The Purple Rain Cocktail

by Tim Barley

Raise one with us to a music icon and a movie musical visionary

Purple Rain movie

We’re devastated here in the office with the death of Prince, who gave us one of the greatest movie musicals of all time. And for anyone who grew up in the 1980’s, Purple Rain was a movie that was ingrained across the cultural landscape both on radio and on the big screen. As we set up the office today and pull out our DVD copy of the film, we’re setting up the bar to make drinks.

And we can think of nothing better to salute the man and the legend with the Purple Rain Cocktail.
