INSPIRATION:

I have been looking into going into a Avaition career as a helicopter pilot. And then I heard about the drink competition and thought that I would try and reinvent the classic cocktail Avaition using VEEV. When smelling this amazing acai spirit I got a lot of fruity notes and thought that orange would pair well with it. For the name of the cocktail I wanted to use Blue Aveevation so I decided to just make my own blueberry syrup.
