Guests are always asking for something light and refreshing. Our cocktail list is corporate driven and is always a season behind with respect to guest needs. I decided to gather some ingredients from the kitchen that I felt could help create a refreshing drink.
Ginger beer is something that I enjoy using, so it made sense to use it here. Virginia summers are warm and humid. This drink tends to make your forget all about that.
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
