I really enjoy sours and wanted to take a New York sour and make it feel more like home. With the great beer scene that San Diego is know for I replaced the red wine with one of my favorite beers which is Wahoo White Ale brewed locally in San Diego by Ballast Point. I enjoy the orange notes that come from the ale as well as the balance of citrus paired with smoke and spice that come from Solerno and Ancho Reyes.
When I was trying to think about the name I had to try the cocktail one more time and thought about the fresh flavor of VEEV and using Wahoo it made sense to make a reference to a fresh fish so ‘Catch Of The Day’ felt right. It also makes a reference to the fish tacos that can be had in San Diego and are prepared with the catch of the day
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
