'I never meant to cause you any sorrow. I never meant to cause you any pain. I only wanted one time to see
you laughing. I only want to see you laughing in the purple...' negroni? We'll admit it doesn't quite have the same ring to it, but tonight (June 7) Shake is celebrating Prince's birthday with purple drinks, music and more.

As part of their Rhythm for Relief Charity nights, raising money for Shanghai Healing Home – a non-profit that provides pre- and post-surgical care for Chinese orphan babies born with surgically correctable deformities – The Purple One will feature curated Prince playlists and fresh arrangements of classic Prince tracks as well as purple negronis in honour of what would have been the late musical superstar's 60th birthday.

There will be live music from 10pm and drinks (100RMB each) mixed by guest bartender Chris Lowder all night, with 50RMB from every negroni going to Shanghai Healing Home. Sound like something you're into? Get into the mood for some purple negronis by listening to the classic Prince hit 'Purple Rain' below.
