The aphrodisiac power of cocktails
Spirits are historically aphrodisiac because they lower inhibitions. But the danger with hard liquor is, of course, overindulgence. By blending spirits into cocktails, we limit their powers to send us into the no-go zone.
We love cocktails because the offer an opportunity to layer additional aphrodisiac ingredients into a drink. But great cocktails are often complicated to make. And we don’t want you slaving away over a drink instead of lavishing your attention on something much more important, like your lover. So we always look out for ideas for an easy cocktail recipe–especially one that layers aphrodisiac ingredients. And Veev, one of our favorite spirit companies, knows how to deliver.
What is Veev?
“La Dolce Veev” is a tart, refreshing drink that’s layered with aphrodisiac ingredients, starting with the base spirit. Veev is a white spirit blended with acai berry. Acai is a superfood made popular in the early 2000’s. It’s an antioxidant-rich rainforest fruit with some unique nutritional properties. (Learn more about acai berry.)
Veev uses acai berry to naturally flavor their spirit, (which is basically a winter wheat vodka). In this cocktail, they’ve added a hint of aphrodisiac mint and sweetened the drink with a kiss of honey. The result is a fairly simple, vibrant cocktail filled with aphrodisiac promise!
Why you’ll love Veev’s easy cocktail recipe
These days, so many cocktail recipes are complicated, involving foams, nitrogen, dry ice, etc. Mixologist know no bounds. And we love trying out these clever drinks when someone else makes them for us.
But at home? Want to take our ingredients, give them a shake and pour them straight into a glass. And that’s exactly what La Dolce Veev does. This is one of the easiest cocktail recipes you’re ever going to attempt. Just four ingredients, a shaker and a glass. Making a cocktail doesn’t get much easier. As long as you know how to squeeze a lemon, you’re in business!
This simple cocktail combines the aphrodisiac of the acai fruit found in Veev (a white spirit), with the freshness of citrus juice and hints of honey and mint.
