VEEV Spirits Presents: A New Orleans Cocktail Joyride with Willy Shine & Jesse Carr behind the bar at Balise

Take a little trip with Bartenders Willy Shine & Jesse Carr on a joyride of VEEV cocktails inspired by the music & sounds of New Orleans.  Using only the best ingredients this power duo have created a menu of cocktails you won’t want to miss. The night will also feature the winning Bartender and cocktail from the Chilled Magazine “A Better Way To Drink Bartender Challenge” sponsored by VEEV.

VEEV, now 70 Proof, is a handcrafted premium spirit, that is infused with just the right amount of acai and other natural flavors like prickly pear and acerola cherry which makes it a better alternative to vodka. Crafted at our award-winning distillery that is powered by renewable wind energy, VEEV is distilled in small batches to ensure we achieve a perfectly balanced taste. The result is a versatile, full-bodied spirit with a smooth finish. So go ahead, cheat on the harsh taste and same ole boring vodka you’ve grown tired of. #CheatOnVodka
