Purple Haze Martini

On these hot summer days, I have fond childhood memories of drinking ice-cold Grape Kool-Aid that my mom used to make by the pitcher.  As an added touch of flavor, she would add fresh orange slices.  But now that I'm a grown woman, maybe a Purple Haze Martini, with an orange slice, will do the trick  "Oh Yeah!"  The recipe below was sent to me by Hypnotiq®.  I also have the recipe posted with some other purple party ideas on my "purple party page" click HERE if you would like to see more photos.

1 oz. freshly squeezed pomegranate juice -
1 1/2 oz. Hypnotiq®  - a great liquor
1 1/2 oz. pineapple juice shopping list
orange rind and apple slice for garnish shopping list

How to make a purple martini:

Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker over ice.

Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass.
