VeeV Pineapple Cilantro Mojito

180x180_g3

It’s Friday night y’all!!! You know what that means??? Damn skippy – it’s cocktail night!! I’ve decided that every Friday night for the month of September I am making and sharing with all of you a delectable healthy cocktail made with the amazing VeeV Açaí Spirit. This is stepping away from my regular Vegan MoFo theme of cheap gluten-free meals, but c-mon, it’s FRIDAY NIGHT, cut me some slack.

VeeV** is the world’s first certified carbon neutral spirit made from sustainably harvested açaí. Their distillery is the only one in the U.S. to use wind power and the company gives 1% of their sales to rainforest conservation. All in all it’s a great product to support and most importantly it makes a damn tasty cocktail!

Ok…on to the good stuff!

I had some cilantro left over from the pesto I made earlier in the week and figured I could do a twist on a classic mojito by using cilantro instead of mint and add a little pineapple juice as well (I like my drinks a bit sweet yo)! I was a little nervous as I am definitely no where close to being a mixologist, but I hit the nail on the frickin head with this one! So light and refreshing and the flavors were spot on! Who knows, maybe I have a new profession in my future…

I’ve very recently become obsessed with making my own infused simple syrups and I made a cilantro version earlier in the day so it was ready for the evening cocktail extravaganza!

Check out the recipe below – mix yourself up a tasty beverage and then tell me how you like it in the comments!

SALUTE!

**VeeV is made with wheat which means it is NOT gluten-free, so if you have an intolerance, you can substitute this for a different spirit.
