INSPIRATION:

VEEV is a playful, approachable Brazilian spirit and I wanted to keep it as such. This cocktail is intended to evoke emotion and recreate a memory. In my mind, soccer is synonymous with Brazilian culture, and I want to play off the nostalgia that I get when I think about finishing a soccer game as a child; receiving oranges and a refreshing beverage. It’s a memory that many adults can relate to and therefore Friendly Match can become a catalyst for conversation. It’s a playful concept represented in a serious cocktail. Cheers!
