Drink of the Week: The TREEtini Have One for Earth Day!

April 20 2010 - 8:24 PM

The TREEtini is an interesting promotional drink for a couple reasons. One, of course, is Earth Day! Like you need an excuse for a martini? Another reason is that while it's a national effort on the part of Veev (acai flavored wheat-spirit that's pretty tasty, especially when the bottle was free!), it's mostly available in Chicago. Why does that really matter? Because all the recipes are different.

I've worked for a couple of brands in the spirits industry, specifically coming up with drink ideas, and to have one that is different everywhere is actually a cool idea. It also makes it hard to really evaluate without getting really ripped – Veev is 60% to begin with, so here is simply where to try one in town! (after the jump)
