My inspiration is the restaurant i work at and my eating habits. I work at a farm to table restaurant called Agricola which focuses on fresh local ingredients. I always loved eating vegetables since i was a kid, and my favorite was beets. So when i heard of this competition and tasted Veev for the first time, i was amazed with the flavor that the Acai berries gave it and since it is a superfood why not make my cocktail with earthy and healthy ingredients. I love to juice in the morning and try different combinations of fruits and vegetable so i decided to put Veev in one of my juices and the combination was phenomenal. The liquor blends in so well with the beets, lemon and grapefruit juice. The drink is so refreshing it reminds you of being by the beach. So if you love to juice and sometimes you want to spike it up. Why Vodka? a better alternative is Veev. A better way to Drink #CheatOnVodka
