PURPLE HAZED MARTINI for Jimi Hendrix

  http://themartinidiva.com
 
THE PURPLE HAZED MARTINI
In honor of the great guitarist of the sixties, Jimi Hendrix
(November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970)
 
I'm always experimenting with new liqueurs and brands so I picked up a small mini bottle of 99 Grapes to give it a try. While I would not, in all likely hood, ever drink this liqueur straight, I found the imitation grape flavor very reminiscent of the grape soda I used to love as a kid and this is what inspired this recipe. The sweetness of the liqueurs is cut nicely by the soda and you get an adult version of grape soda!

When I mixed it all up and poured it into my martin glass it was the most beautiful purple cocktail I'd ever mixed up and for some reason I thought of Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze. Thus, under the influence of alcoholic grape soda, The Purple Hazed Martini was born. It might be young but, like me and all the rest of us old hippies from the sixties, it's experienced!

Now, excuse me while I kiss the sky.
