1 oz. VEEV
1 oz. Rosemary-Infused Aperol
1 oz. Imbue Petal and Thorn Vermouth
Stir ingredients with ice, strain over a 2″x2″ ice cube.
My inspiration was the Negroni. VEEV is a has a crisp, clean sweetness that I wanted to shine through, I didn’t want to add any other sugar that would overpower it. The Rosemary is from our garden, featuring our own or foraged vegetables and herbs is one of the best parts of summer. The summers in Chicago are by far the best, but they are way too short; thus the inspiration for my bittersweet flavor profile.
VEEV, now 70 Proof, is a handcrafted premium spirit, that is infused with just the right amount of Acai and other natural flavors like prickly pear and acerola cherry which makes it a better alternative to vodka. Crafted at our award winning distillery that is powered by renewable wind energy, VEEV is distilled in small batches to ensure we achieve a perfectly balanced taste. The result is a versatile, full-bodied spirit with a smooth finish. So go ahead, cheat on the harsh taste and same ole boring vodka you’ve grown tired of. #CheatOnVodka
