This weeks drink of the week comes with a blast from the past, so get ready to get your groove on with the Purple Haze. First, for those whose memory is hazy, a history lesson. In December 1966, in the dressing room of a club in London, prior to a gig, Jimmy Hendrix sat down and wrote the legendary hit “Purple Haze.” The song would be recorded the following January and eventually released on March 17th, 1967. The song was so good magazine named it the #1 guitar song of all time, while Rolling Stone named it #2. Such a legendary song deserves a legendary drink to share it’s name, and the Purple Haze certainly does it justice. This delicious mix of Rum, Schnapps, and Whiskey will be as pleasing to your palette as Jimmy Hendrix is to your ears. The perfect drink for your next party, barbecue, or jam session around the campfire.
