My inspiration for this cocktail comes from my experience of working with Sours. This drink is not sour but, uses similar elements that are found in the cocktail family of Sours. I wanted to make a drink that was unique, showcased VEEV, balanced, used modern bartending techniques and methods but, also be quick and simple for a bartender to make during peak times.
This drink is similar to a Cosmopolitan. Instead of Triple Sec or Orange Liqueur, I use VEEV, instead of Citron vodka, I use Ciroc Red Berry vodka. The juice and citrus components of this drink are represented by the use of my Pineapple-Sage and Lemon syrup.The hydrocol spritz adds a nice bouquet for the nose as you drink this cocktail. Light, refreshing, balanced and delicious.
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
