This is another of those lovely purple drinks that tastes as exotic as it looks.

The Purple Haze is named for the signature song of the late great Jimmi Hendrix. It was released by the Jimmi Hendrix Experience in 1967, and was featured two years later in the Hendrix set at Woodstock. It has been called the greatest guitar track ever recorded. Hendrix died at the age of 27 in London, England, of an apparent drug overdose.

The recipe for a Purple Haze Cocktail also calls for one of the greatest liqueurs ever created. Chambord in a raspberry liqueur manufactured in France. The cognac base is embellished by a mixture of black and red raspberries, vanilla, citrus peel, and honey. Chambord is said to be based on a French liqueur that was produced over 400 years ago in the Loire Valley.

Best of all, it comes in an incredibly cool bottle.

There are, of course, variations on the Purple Haze recipe. If you find it a bit sweet, add a splash of ginger ale after adding the shaken drink to a rocks glass. You can also replace the Chambord with grape schnapps but really, why would you want to?

Here’s what you’ll need:
