Katrina,
I found this pretty photo of a purple haze (http://tiny.cc/7sG0c) but the ingredients are alcoholic. After reading the directions (http://tiny.cc/1g4Gk ), it got me thinking that you could take any non-alcoholic clear drink, add a drop or 2 of blue food coloring and a splash of grenadine (which is basically a sweet red syrup) until it turned a lovely light purple/lavender.
Another idea is to take a sparkling drink (as simple as 7-UP or another clear flavored carbonated beverage – there are LOTS available now!), add a splash of grape juice and a handful of blueberries like this: http://tiny.cc/eCoI2.
Good luck!
