The Perfect Margarita for Any Occasion

VEEV grapefruit margarita

Saturday morning came, and TJ and I decided to embark on one of our crazy workouts. We had left our bikes at my parents house a few weeks back and decided that it was time to bring them home. So we laced up our shoes for the 8 mile run to retrieve them. Once retrieved, we hopped on the seats and pedaled home. All in all, it was a 16 mile workout… needless to say, my muscles were sore and screaming for a cocktail… because there’s nothing I love more than a cozy night in after a strenuous workout. There’s jusst something about tossing on the stretchy pants (or sometimes an old pair of Juicy velour pants, pick your color….), oversized sweater, and slippers to veg out on the couch, cocktail in hand.

I’m always torn though. After such a “healthy” day, who wants to ruin it with sugary and high calorie drinks?? Enter VEEV. VEEV was created as a better alternative to vodka. It’s organically crafted, with just the right amount of acai. And since acai is a superfood, and it is made with all organic ingredients, I’m free to indulge without the bulge. Last night’s cocktail of choice? Their grapefruit margarita recipe. It was crisp, refreshing, and just the right elixir for our sore muscles. So, whether you’re in need of a cocktail to soothe those tired muscles, or simply a refreshing margarita for National Margarita Day (which is today if you didn’t know :)), VEEV has you covered! Cheers to that, right?
