What The Heck Is VEEV?

One of the perks of writing a little cocktail blog is spending time at the local BevMo looking for new and interesting things.  When I read that inside this tall, cool looking bottle is a spirit made from the Acai berry–I had to give it a try.  VeeV claims to be a “better way to drink.”   

Acai (pronounced ah-SIGH-ee) is the Brazilian national fruit.  Loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C and  E, protein and fiber, Acai is thought to be one of the healthiest fruits on the planet.  Research varies on this claim, but we are talking about an alcoholic spirit, not a diet plan. Veev is also blended with all natural ingredients like prickly pear and acerola cherry.

VeeV also gets bonus points for being active in raising awareness, resources and support for the Brazilian Rainforest and the safe harvest of Acai.  As an eco-friendly business, Veev’s production is carbon neutral and sustainable.  All of these things make the this a hip, responsible choice.

We tried Veev cocktails last weekend.  With a refreshing and light berry taste, Veev makes a fabulous afternoon cocktail for warm weather.

Veev Cocktail

  • 1 oz Veev
  • 1/8 of a lime squeezed
  • ice ( two or three cubes)
  • sparkling water, club soda or perrier

Add Veev, lime juice and ice to champagne glass.  Fill with sparkling water and stir to mix.  Garnish with a lime slice.  Easy, light and refreshing.
