What Kind of Drink is This?!

Question: What Kind of Drink is This?
In the song "It Felt Good On My Lips" there's a part that says, "she ordered us a drink it was a purple kinda pink, she said it's got a shot of a little bit of everything." Do you know what drink she is referring to? 10 points: Do you know how to make it?

You are looking at one of two drinks my dear:
First it could likely be a cosmopolitan, I am guessing a variation of the Blue Cosmo, with cranberry juice added to make a purple and less blue curacao.. the recipe would be something like this 1 1/4 oz vodka 1/4th oz blue curacao 2 1/2 oz cranberry juice and the juice from 1/2 a lime garnished with an orange spiral. This would result in a purple-pink drink. However, because the lyrics stated it was "purple kinda pink", I am assuming it was layer and my best guess is that it was an Iced Tea... not only from the layering but due to the fact that the drink has "a shot of a little bit of everything..."
Thus I believe it was a variation of the Miami Beach Iced Tea with the altered recipe looking like this
1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz light rum
1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz tequila
1 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 oz lemon lime soda
1 lemon wedge
1/2 oz blue curacao
2-3 oz deep cranberry or pomegranate juice.
Fill a shaker with ice, or a glass if you have a Boston style shaker
Add the rum, gin, vodka, tequila, lemon juice and simple syrup
Shake vigorously
Pour the blue curacao into a highball glass, then add the ice. (it should be ice first, but for layering reasons...)
Pour your vigorously shaken cocktail into the drink slowly
Top it off with cranberry or pomegranate juice
Garnish with a wedge of Lemon


p:s: you may need to stir slowly and slightly to mix the polarized blue and red to create a purple-pink. Stir from the TOP DOWN aka don't stick the spoon in and go to town.

She ordered a Cocktails !
Cocktails made with too different kind of drinks.......
Greeks made the best kind of cocktails.......

consider she may not be referring to any drink and just put together words for the song so that they rhyme at any cost
