1 1/2 oz. VEEV
1/2 oz. Maraschino Liquor
1/2 oz. Chartreuse
1/2 oz. Lime Juice
Dash of. Lemon Bitters
Add all ingredients into a mixer, add ice, shake and strain into a chilled Cocktail glass. Garnish with edible flower.
In this case, the classic Last Word cocktail was a starting point. I used the subtle yet complexly pleasurable VEEV in place of the less desirable Gin. I found that it plays very nicely with the herbaceous Chartreuse and candy like components of the Maraschino. The acidity of the Lime and punch of the Lemon bitters brought it all together into harmony! The edible flower just adds another floral element that sings a high note in this symphony of VEEV!!!!
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
