The Purple Pushover is a mostly rum-based cocktail, with orange and pineapple juice, and some very clear notes from a red raspberry liqueur and grenadine. The taste is fruity and sweet – more mellow than citrus.

The Purple Pushover is a fun drink that’s packed with citrus and berry flavor. It’s actually on the weak side, with just a quarter ounce of serious liquor and another half ounce of low-proof liqueurs.

And that makes it good for occasional drinkers, and for get-togethers where you don’t want anyone getting drunk, such as work-related parties. You can mix up a big batch of this cocktail in a pitcher beforehand.
