Now that football season’s over, and the snow is about to keep us cooped up in our dorms, apartments, and frat houses, we all need a little spirit (or spirits). Start your own party with these cocktails basically made for each and every JMU Duke.
Storms of Paradise
A bubbly cocktail with a dark side, Storms in Paradise is a great treat or starter to your winter nights. It’s ideal for getting wasted with your squad while you watch the snow fall. This drink is made for you Schnapps folks. #ThrowbackToMyDadsLiquorCabinet
Purple and Gold Margarita
Need one of these in our life right about now. #purplemargarita #summertime #margaritas #everythingispurple #do512 #ATX #austintx #regram @corchella A photo posted by Do512 (@do512) on Aug 5, 2015 at 11:54am PDT
Not too creative a name, and not too difficult a drink, this cocktail will set you on your butt with raspberry liqueur and gold tequila. Put a purple salt ring around the edge, and you got yourself a JMaddy beverage.
Mardi Gras Madness Punch
For your larger parties, throw together this Nah’Lins favorite. Some grape juice, lemon soda, and pineapple juice plus some vodka can really go a long way. Put on some masks and celebrate like you live in the French Quarter on South Main.

Seen on the legendary Tipsy Bartender, the Galaxy Storm is a colorful bomb of a cocktail that makes you see stars. It is a bit complex though-with tequila, gin, vodka, and more. Maybe make this drink with your sober and switch to Burnett’s later for ease.
The Purple Haze is perfect for Hendrix lovers and JMU lovers. It’s basically a Saturday night out at JMU. Your mouth tastes like fruit, and you can’t quite find your apartment at 2 am. Another elaborate cocktail, but one that has #purplepower.
