The passing of the musical genius formerly known as Price has rocked so many of his fans that we're still mourning his loss. April 21st, 2016, was quite the blow, and I will probably mark that day for years to come “All day Prince day” on my calendar. For Cinco de Mayo, I bring you The Purple Margarita Inspired by Prince to honor his royal badness. Cheers!
