This cocktail was inspired by “a better way to drink.” Agave nectar was chosen for its natural sweetening properties. The acai infusion in VEEV inspired a blueberry centered cocktail. Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants and are rich in manganese to help keep you energized. I grew up with a blueberry bush right outside my bedroom window, so they also remind me of home. Mint and pineapple were also chosen for their health benefits and alleged cleansing properties. Mint is a soothing herb, high in antioxidants and used for thousands of years to aid in digestion, while pineapples are said to assist in reduction of inflammation and even kidney stones! This is a light, fresh, and fruity drink that goes down easy and doesn’t fill you up, making it a perfect drink for a hot summer day by the pool, or relaxing with on the patio after a long, hard day.
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
