“Purple Reign Sipper”

This past week we lost one of the greatest if not the greatest artist of our time, “Prince.” A toast to the man and his music with the Purple Reign Sipper. A libation created with the rainbow in mind. Prince could always show us his many colors and this cocktail will give you a kick like only Prince’s music could give you. I was fortunate enough to see Prince twice. His shows were a party front start to finish. He always left you wanting more. His energy seemed to run through you. Trust me, an experience I will never forget. Prince, the man and his music will forever be a reminder to stay true to yourself, to stay positive and kind, not degrade each other, stay interested and fascinated by everything and that each of us has a purpose.

Here’s to Prince…my he rest in peace and his music live in us, now and always.
