I’ve been making a simple version of this cocktail for many years but for the sake of this challenge added another layer of flavor by adding the pink salt. This cocktail reminds me of back yard bbq’s and always adding salt to cold watermelon,and is perfect this time of year!! ENJOY
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
