1/4 oz. Chai Tea Infused Simple Syrup

My inspiration behind this cocktail was the classic Martini, the classic Manhattan, and the classic Old Fashioned. I love how each of these drinks allow the respective spirits to work their magic. Using sweet and dry vermouth in any cocktail makes it “perfect” and this blend of vermouth and Chai Tea allows the VEEV to shine through with the utmost perfection. I limited the number of ingredients in this cocktail to four to represent the number of columns used to distill VeeV…which uses wind to power the process. All in all, the combination of VEEV, Sweet and Dry Vermouth, and a touch of Chai Tea Infused Simple syrup equal “The Perfect VEEV” – The Perfect Life.
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
