Purple Passion

The Purple Passion cocktail is fruit juice and vodka with just a dash of grenadine. The two juices it uses – cranberry and grapefruit – are both on the tart side, so it’s not particularly sweet for a fruity cocktail.

This drink makes a nice change from a Screwdriver or a Vodka Cranberry. It’s got a similar mix of sweet and tart flavor, but the grapefruit adds an extremely refreshing note. It’s great to unwind with at the end of the day, or to enjoy poolside.


  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces grapefruit juice
  • 2 ounces cranberry juice
  • 1 dash grenadine

Fill a shaker with ice. Pour the ingredients in and shake until chilled. Strain the mixture into a highball glass.
