I really wanted to do a daiquiri riff and thought of the Hemingway to be the source of inspiration. Maraschino liqueur is a little intense for me at times so Maurin Quina supplies the cherry element and let’s the Veev shine as well as the small amount of Pamplemousse to add that grapefruit daiquiri. The angostura just helps to bind everything together. The blueberries are part of the garnish as they often paired with acaí as a fruit and I wanted to infuse them with a Veev gimlet of the competition allows it.
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
