VEEV is the inspiration for this cocktail. I wanted to make something light and refreshing with some subtle complexities. After my first time tasting VEEV, I knew that the Thai Basil would fit in well and that Absinthe would compliment the slight licorice flavor of the Basil.
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
