Q: I am in charge of putting together a bridal shower. We're planning on doing a brunch and having beer, wine and a signature cocktail.
The bridal colors are black, white, and purple, so I'm wondering if your lovely readers could suggest a purple cocktail for a crowd.

Editor: Katherine, we think that you really can't go wrong with a cool, elegant Blue Moon cocktail (gin, lemon juice, and creme de violette). Yes, the color is a dusky lavender — not exactly deep purple — but the taste is delicate without being too sweet. It's a classic drink, and that's probably the way we would lean.

Readers, any ideas for Katherine? Something more solidly purple, perhaps?
