The Ocean Club Cocktail

In a mixing glass, muddle 5 fresh Italian sweet basil leaves, 5 fresh thinly sliced English cucumber slices, and 1.5 ounces of homemade lime mix (fresh lime juice and simple syrup). Ingredients should be muddled firmly while being careful to keep the cucumber and basil partially intact for both presentation and flavor (should not be broken up into tiny pieces, as the cucumber and basil can be bitter to taste).

Add 2 ounces of VEEV Acai Spirit and a splash of simple syrup. Shake and pour into a stemless white wine glass.

Tip: For a subtle twist, substitute Thai basil for a more pronounced licorice flavor, or Holy basil for a spicier kick!
