When designing a cocktail, I like to think of what I want to feel, the taste I want to project and the experience I want a person to have when they drink that cocktail. With VEEV it’s quite easy to get that big fresh clean feeling. After tasting and pairing a bunch of different fruits, smoothing it out with natural sugar, throwing in a good herb, I came across what I think is the perfect blend to be the “Summer Garden Squeeze!”
The thing that inspired me to create this cocktail was really VEEV’s standing on taking an old product and “cheating” to get a smooth, all natural taste. Once it hits your tongue you can easily sip vodka and not get a bad burn and harsh flavor. My favorite part of building a good cocktail is to start with a great product. And, serving a GREAT cocktail to a waiting consumer is my inspiration!
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
