8th Annual 12 Drinks of Christmas, Day 6! Great Cocktails Made from Organic Spirit VEEV!

I love cocktails. I think it’s fun to try out new spirits and new twists on classic cocktails as well as more light-hearted contemporary ones. What’s not to love? I like gathering my friends together and spending time with them while I mix it up. Some friends know I love to do this and bring me a bottle or two to play with and see what comes out. Often if I find recipes I like online, I want to try them at home and see what else I can do to make them my version of something tasty. Think of it as giving it a bit of a twist or spice… according to me!

INGREDIENTS

2 oz VEEV Spirit

¾ oz Bourbon

Stevie’s Twist
(Try Jack Daniels Honey or the new Jack Daniels holiday special, “Winter Jack”/Tennessee Cider [they are the same thing] SUPER-Yummy!! Or if you want to go in a different direction, try cognac for a bit more depth in this spirit)

½ oz Lemonade

1/4 oz Honey (or Agave)

Dash of Orange Bitters

Garnish: Lemon Peel
Glass type: Coupe

PREPARATION
Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker and shake.
Strain contents into chilled coupe or martini glass. Garnish with a lemon peel.

While you might not have Veev, don’t try to substitute something else for it, if you want to know how this really tastes. There are enough different recipes here and on the VEEV recipe page

Have a great time test-driving these cocktails. If you try one or more recipes, post to me on twitter.com/lastory or comment on this post!
