Speared Blueberries and Basil Leaves
I’ve been pursuing a healthier lifestyle over the past year and have been trying to come up with creative cocktails that reflect that. VEEV already provided the all natural base that inspired my creation. I really love using fresh herbs and berries to create clean, great tasting drinks. Incorporating basil and blueberries into this particular cocktail was just another way for me to show that cocktails don’t have to be full of soda and candy to be delicious.
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
