You've given me an excuse to consult the 2 cocktail recipe books that I have never even opened!

 

My initial thought when I read "tequila" and "fruity" was a Tequila Sunrise (tequila, OJ, grenadine). However it's not purple.

 

Any purple drink I found in my little cocktail recipe book included Blue Curacao (blue), cranberry (red/pink) [there you have the purple], and vodka, each in varying proportions. I have no idea if this would work with tequila instead of vodka.

 

A quick Internet search for purple cocktails came up with the drinks in these links:

(no tequila, some potentially fruity options, all purple)

 

Another option is to use a couple drops of purple food coloring in a clear or light-colored drink that otherwise works for your tastes. I would make sure that the food coloring doesn't stain people's teeth though!

 

Good luck with your search!

We plan on doing this and our main color is turquoise.  Seems like every drink close to that color has blue curacao in it.  I love rum so I plan on doing something with those two.

Appletinis are a crowd pleaser and lime green in color. Midori Sours are also lime green and tasty. They remind me of the sour apple straws.  

 

I agree with sxcT that most blue drinks I came across have Blue Curacao in them. I've never had Blue Curacao, so I don't know how it tastes, but it looks good!
