1 1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. black raspberry liqueur
2 oz. cranberry juice (add more if needed)
Mint sprig (garnish)

- Strain into a glass filled with ice.
- Add the cranberry juice.
- Garnish with a sprig of mint and some blackberries if you want.

- If you find this mix a little too sweet, you can add a splash of soda. Ginger ale is an excellent option but you can definitely utilize any clear soda.
Like what we have said earlier, Purple Haze has lots of variations. You can do the following too:
Purple Haze Martini
Add 1 1/2 oz. vodka, 1 oz. blue curacao, and 1/2 oz. grenadine to a cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
Lemonade Purple Haze
Add 1 1/2 oz. vodka and 1 oz. Chambord into a highball glass with ice. Add equal amounts of lemonade and lemon-lime soda. Stir and then garnish with a lemon wedge before serving.
Purple Haze Shooter 1
This right here is just like the lemonade purple haze recipe. You just have to mix equal parts of the 3 ingredients and fill a shot glass.
Purple Haze Shooter 2
For this one, you need to mix grape and peach schnapps with rum. Shake and strain 1 oz. grape schnapps with 1/2 oz. each rum and peach schnapps into a chilled shot glass.
How Strong Are the Purple Haze Variations?
Purple Haze drinks vary in style as well as the amount of alcohol that they contain. If you want a strong drink, your best bet would be the martini and shooter variations. But if you want something light and smooth, then the lemonade mix is a great option. You can control the amount of liquor though.
