Purple Cloud, grape juice cocktail

We couldn’t help thinking about names from the marvelous Dr. Seuss children’s books while working on this recipe. But Purple Lurple left us laughing so much we were barely able to finish the drink. Purple Cloud doesn’t sound as funny, but it does taste as good. Not to be confused with purple rain.
