One-Eyed Purple People Eater Cocktail

Updated: May 25, 2020

This evil concoction gets its purple hue from grape soda and adding a combination of Malibu rum and Vodka, which makes the grape soda smooth with little bite. Add an ice eyeball and you’ll have a creepy, yet decadent purple cocktail for your Halloween party!
