The Purple Rain Cocktail


The Purple Rain cocktail.

If you're going to celebrate the London Olympics (and don't have $3,000 for an Olympian cocktail), than why not celebrate with a London Dry Gin cocktail? BULLDOG London Dry Gin created London-themed drinks in honor of the Olympics; and this one -- the Purple Rain -- honors "the most reliable part of London weather." With champagne, creme de violette, and elderflower liqueur added to the mix, the Purple Rain has the botanical flavor of BULLDOG. 


  • 2 Ounces BULLDOG gin
  • 1/2 Ounce Creme de Violette Liquer
  • 1/2 Ounce Elderflower Liqueur
  • 1/4 Ounce fresh lime juice
  • chilled champagne or cava


Combine ingredients (save sparkling wine) in a shaker over ice. Shake and strain into a tall glass and top with champagne or cava.
