Even though it's 80 degrees and sunny today, according to the calendar, summer has said adios for now. Gratefully, the weather was also slammin' for last week's "end of summer" cocktail gathering thrown by Veev at A60, the rooftop lounge of 60 Thompson Hotel. As I'm sure you know by now (or see here and here), Veev is a wheat grain spirit flavored with acai, prickly pear, and acerola cherry. Naturally, the drinks on hand at the party were lightly sweet and refreshing, such as the VeeViolette (Veev, Creme de Violette, lemon juice, mint), the Brazilian Silent Night (Veev, St-Germain elderflower liqueur, pear puree, prosecco), and the Cran-Acai Crush (Veev, cranberry juice, peach liqueur, lemon juice, prosecco). The cocktails went down easy and were a great way to toast the end of the season, and I look forward to seeing what Veev has in store for fall. Many thanks to Killy Smith of Veev for the invite!
