We have the dip and now we need to talk about the drink!

If you remember from the last time I had the pleasure of working with VEEV spirit, it’s the perfect alternative to vodka.  So why put it in a margarita you ask?

That’s a really good question and I’ll tell you why!

Yes, traditionally a margarita is made with tequila but why do we have to place hard and fast with those rules? I find a margarita with Tequila alone to be a little harsh and can take away from the drink. Unlike other vodkas, VEEV Spirit is super mixable and works great with other spirits.

This Strawberry Kiwi Margarita with VEEV is perfect for anyone who wants all the delicious taste of the fruit, without the harsh burn of alcohol.

Plus I love that VEEV is made in small batches and is made in a wind-powered distillery.  They give back to the planet you guys.  You’ve got to feel good about that!

Let’s chat about our drink now though, okay?

It’s full of homemade fruit purees, just a touch of sugar and of course lime juice, tequila and VEEV.  It’s refreshing, perfect on a hot day and while I prefer it on the rocks, easy enough to go frozen if that’s your preferred way.

Make a small batch for yourself or a giant pitcher of the strawberry kiwi puree for a margarita bar at your Cinco de Mayo party.
