Strawberry Spring Mule Cocktail

I’m a huge fan of Moscow Mules for a couple reasons. One – vodka (duh). Second – ginger. And third – my best friend and her husband introduced them to me when they came to spend the weekend a few years ago and we had a blast drinking and talking throughout the night. So the Mule conjures up special memories for me. But in celebration of Spring, I wanted to put a twist on the classic cocktail.

VEEV Crazy4CoconutColada Instagram Contest!

Happy June y’all! The weather is hot hot hot and I’ve been spending a lot of time by the pool (slathered in sunscreen of course) daydreaming of my upcoming vacation (more on that later!). I’m sneaking away to a tropical island and nothing gets me in the mood better than an icy cold adult beverage. My beloved VEEV has just released their VitaFruit Coconut Colada flavor which is the PERFECT libation to conjure up visions of white sand beaches and crystal blue waters.

Blackberry Ginger Cocktail

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a cocktail recipe. I’ve been visiting my best friend and her adorable family this past week and it was the perfect opportunity to whip up a refreshing adult beverage to share with some of the best people I know! There was no premeditated thought that went into this drink, we simply used what she had on hand in her kitchen and the results were fantastic!

Vegan Chipshots

A chipshot is a drink shot consisting of cold coffee, Tuaca and Irish cream and I only discovered this recently when I was googling the recipe for them. You see, to me, chipshots were always served hot in a huge mug topped with tons of whipped cream. That’s how I was first introduced to them about 14 years ago from my Uncle Dan and I wanted to make a vegan version in tribute to him.

Apple & Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash & VeeV Sage Cider

A couple months ago I was contacted by VeeV and asked if I wanted to make a dish to pair with one of their signature cocktails for an upcoming feature. Without hesitation I gave them an emphatic YES! I love VeeV. As you may remember, during the month of September I made weekly cocktails using this earth-friendly Açaí Spirit: my take on a mojito, pomegranate ginger concoction, citrusy basil spritzer and a warm apple cider. Needless to say I was stoked at the chance to work with VeeV!!

VeeV Spiked Apple Cider

It’s finally starting to feel like Fall here! The wind is blowing, the sky is clear and I’m ready for a warm Fall cocktail! A perfect combination is apple cider and VeeV Açaí Spirit. This is the last Friday of Vegan MoFo 2013 and I’m a little sad so I’m going to curl up with this warm cozy drink and reflect on the past month.

VeeV Blood Orange, Raspberry & Basil Spritzer

Wow…another week has flown by and it’s time again to sit and ponder the past 7 days over a deliciously refreshing cocktail. This one may be a little dangerous because it doesn’t taste like alcohol at all, more like a yummy sparkling punch. Combining the flavors of raspberries, blood orange, basil and the Aćaí Spirit from VeeV this drink tantalizes your tastebuds.

VeeV Pomegranate Ginger Cocktail

Hey, hey, hey it’s Friday night and that means it’s my favorite time – cocktail time (there’s good chance I’m a lush)! Last week I made some awesome cilantro mojitos using VeeV Açaí Spirit and they were yummmmmmmy! VeeV is my new best friend all time favorite spirit. It blends well with all kinds of mixers and the taste is so smooth. I’m having a blast coming up with concoctions for my Friday night Vegan MoFo feature. On to this week’s cocktail!!
