VeeV Helps Trevor Project with Hunky Bartenders

By: Joe Thompson

THE PLACE: Bar-tini in Hell's Kitchen, NYC
THE EVENT: The 1st Annual VeeV Superfruit Challenge

THE DEAL: VeeV— a fantastic spirit made from the superfruit açaí berry— brought together some of New York’s most athletic bartenders for the 1st Annual Superfruit Challenge. These Gotham hotties slugged it out over a number of superfruit themed challenges, including best Superfruit Costume, Most Super pick-up bartender lines, Best Superfruit Cocktails, and Super-trivia. And who hosted the event? Our very own Queens of Drag star Bianca del Rio!

Guests attending the event could purchase the drinks, with .25-cents from every Superfruit cocktail benefiting The Trevor Project, the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention among lesbian, gay and bisexual youth.

We’ve got more pics plus the winners below.

Winners announcement

All three cocktails2 The winning team of the evening was Tutti Fruitti from Bar-tini (above), who rocked banana-leotard outfits and served up Livin' La VeeVa Loca cocktails among other outlandish getups.

Since we know you're wondering, VeeV is a tasty clear spirit with a slight berry flavor to it. We got a bottle (you can too since it's sold nationwide) and recipes that we'll put up very soon in Happy Hour.
