1 1/2 oz. of VEEV
1/2 oz. of Schladerer Black Forest Edel-Kirsch Cherry Liqueur
1/2 oz. (Half an Orange) Squeeze
If possible 1/2 oz. of freshly made blue berry syrup or 1/2 oz. of Bonne Maman Wild Blueberry Reserves
Dash of Crème de Violette
First rim the glass with the orange oils and drop it into a martini glass. Add all ingredients to a Boston shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 30 seconds and strain into a martini glass. If using the wild blue berry reserves use fine strain along with a Hawthorne strainer.
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.
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
