Purple Passion is a grape alcoholic beverage made with Everclear. It used to be sold in the 1980's in a 2 liter bottle. Other than Everclear, Purple Passion had another prominant ingredient: "substandard grapes". Closely related beverages are Tropical Passion and Pink Passion.
I didnt know Purple Passion had Everclear. I probably shouldn't have drank that 2 liter bottle of it.
In the American Midwest (specifically small town Nebraska), "Purple Passion" refers to the practice of throwing a party in which all guests bring their own bottle of hard liquor. Everybody dumps the liquor into a bathtub or garbage can and starts drinking!
We are all heading to Sandy Duncan's purple passion party on friday--you coming?.
