    John would LOVE this beverage. I remember Nehi. We were allowed one pop a week and Grape Nehi was a favorite.

    This drink is my everything! I seriously love anything that takes something that I grew up with and makes it ‘adult.’

    I LOVE grape soda SO much! I used to drink it all the time as a kid. This cocktail looks so delish

    Oh wow! It’s a rare treat when I find a place that sells Nehi (I’m a fan of their peach soda) but next time I find such a place I’ll have to snag a grape Nehi and try this!

    I’ve never had a grape Nehi, but I can’t see or hear the name without thinking fondly back to sweet Radar! I loved that show- I’d drink this even though I don’t really drink soda, just to feel nostalgic haha. What an awesome idea!

      LOL, Radar is the best! We don’t drink soda very often, but we saw this in the store and knew we had to do something with it!

    I remember loving grape soda as a kid. What a fun twist on a childhood favorite!

      Thanks, it was always such a treat as a kid! Why not as an adult!

    This reminds me of the movie Now and Then. Pretty sure Jeanine Garafalo serves them a purple cow in the movie. This looks super good.

    Yum! Count me in! A Purple Cow is such a good dessert, but add a little vodka and that puts it over the top.

    I’ve never heard of a purple cow before — but you mentioned tastes from childhood — which reminds me of the black cow my grandmother used to make for me with ice cream, chocolate sauce and coca-cola. Those are some good memories, but now it appears time to make some grown-up ones! This sounds delicious!

    Oh I love this recipe! We used to make the kid-version of these floats when I was young and I had forgotten about them completely. They are delicious! So what a great idea you have going on here. The addition of vodka makes it even more tempting. YUM!
