Take the Guess Work Out of Preparing Cocktails at Home. Instead, Reach for VEEV VitaFrute Ready to Serve Cocktails #vitafrute (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Have you heard of VEEV and their VitaFrute cocktail line?  VitaFrute is a ready to drink cocktail that comes in 4 varieties: Margarita, Lemonade, Cosmopolitan, and Coconut Colada. Unlike other ready to drink cocktails VitaFrute contains under 125 calories per serving, make it perfect for those who are watching their waistline or on a diet.  Another difference between this and ready to drink cocktails is that each variety is made with premium and all-natural ingredients.  It is also certified organic.  Can you name another ready to drink cocktail that offers this?  I doubt it! :-)

Thanks to the kind folks at VEEV VitaFrute, they sent along their Margarita ready to drink cocktail for me to sample, and it couldn't have arrived at a better time.  Have your kids been acting up lately?  Maybe it is something in the water, or maybe I am just lucky and get to deal with the terrible 2's and 3's with my girls.  For the past few weeks my girls have been testing their limits, by acting out, fighting with one another, not napping and being even more of a picky eater than usual.  By the end of the night, I am lucky if I have enough energy to sit down and relax a while by reading or watching some television, without nodding off on the couch.  As I write that night, I can't help but laugh as I used to call my mother on this growing up, as my my brothers and I would watch her nod off in her chair after a long day with us.  Now, a mom myself, I am doing it, too!  I guess I couldn't kept mum before, right? :-)

The girls are also fighting to go to bed at night, usually shutting their eyes and drifting off to sleep around 10-10:30PM.  You would think that because they have been going to bed late that they would sleep in.  Nope!  Instead, they have become early risers, waiting at around 6:30AM to start their day, bright eyed and bushy tailed. If only I could go to bed and sleep for 6-7 hours and wake up with the energy and fresh faced appearance like they do.  When I wake, I have to crawl my way to the kitchen to have some strong black coffee, just to get me going.  And, by mid morning, I am wondering why the clock is going so slow.

I do feel a little relieved as I have talked to friends and other moms lately and they say that they struggle with their kids during the summer months.  Some chalk it up to the kids not having to go to school the next day, while others believe the longer days with it getting darker later in the evening, along with the hot heat sticking around through the night, causes changes in their child's behavior.  Whatever it is, I can't wait for it to pass, and for my sweet girls, who get along, go to bed on time, nap each day, and pick up after themselves returns.  As I wait for this to happen (crossing my fingers they return soon), I find myself reaching for VEEV VitaFrute ready to drink cocktails after the girls go to bed, as a way to unwind and relax.  

Even though I used to be a bartender and waitress back in college and can prepare a good number of tasty mixed cocktails, with the little energy I have at nighttime lately, I am loving the convenience of VEEV VitaFrute ready to drink cocktails.  You don't have to be savvy when it comes to preparing mixed drinks.  If you can place the bottle in the refrigerator and let chill...then, fill a glass with ice and pour the ready to drink cocktail over the ice in the are good to go!  It is that easy.  Such an effortless cocktail, yet full of flavor.  

When it comes to mixed drinks, my favorites include a good margarita or Pina Colada. So, I was happy to have received VEEV VitaFrute's ready to drink Margarita, and could compare it to ones I have prepared myself in the past, enjoyed at restaurants, etc.  And, after enjoying my first class a couple of weeks ago, I have to say hands down that this is the most delicious cocktail I have tasted.  I also love that it is low in calories and made with all natural ingredients.  You will not find concentrates or ingredients you have to look up in a dictionary here.  While it is preferred that you enjoy this ready to enjoy cocktail over ice, you can also enjoy it chilled, without ice and it still tastes great.  My husband can vouch for this, as he is not one to like drinks on the rocks.  If I let him, he would have drunk it from bottle. :-)

I ended up picking up additional VEEV VitaFrute Margarita bottles, along with the three other varieties available for our recent 4th of July cookout.  I was not surprised to hear family and friends rave about the convenience of these ready to serve cocktails and how delicious they tasted.  Guests loved that they were not overly sweet like some mixed cocktails, and how there was no funny aftertaste like other so-called ready to enjoy cocktails.  Out of the four varieties, hands down, everyone agreed that the new Coconut Colada ready to drink cocktail from VEEV was their favorite.  

NEW FLAVOR -- Made with Coconut Water

"The benefits of Coconut Water perfectly align with VitaFrute’s Organic and low-calorie makeup  and ready-to-drink cocktail line up.  This ready to serve cocktail is naturally hydrating & nutrient packed. It is also fat and cholesterol free, and contains electrolytes."

Such a tropical drink, and perfect for hot summer nights, enjoyed by the campfire, or sitting on the back deck enjoying great conversation and time with and friends.  

Do you have any last minute summer gatherings or cookouts you will be hosting at your house, or at a friend or family's?  Why not pick up a few bottles of VEEV VitaFrute ready to drink cocktails to through in the refrigerate to chill and have on hand for guests.  Serving up cocktails is made easy with VEEV VitaFrute, and you don't have to worry about not having a drink of choice for guests, as they will love any of the four varieties available, and will come back for seconds, thirds, etc. :-)  I lost count of how many of my family and friends asked me write down VEEV VitaFrute, so that they could pick up some to have on hand.  I also love visiting other people's houses and having them offer me a cocktail and then pulling out a bottle of VEEV Vitafrute Margarita or Cosmopolitan, for example, to serve up chilled with a glass of ice. :-)

Don't be left out in the dark when it comes to enjoying ready to drink cocktails this summer.  Put away through cocktail recipe cards or shakers, and just grab a bottle of VEEV VitaFrute ready to drink cocktail of your choice that you have been chilling in your refrigerator.  These cocktails are the perfect way to end a crazy day, or to enjoy a warm summer night with family and friends.

Please remember to drink responsibly!


You can purchase Veev VitaFrute ready to drink cocktails, in the four varieties I mentioned above (Margarita, Lemonade, Cosmopolitan, and Coconut Colada) at major grocery store chains nationwide, including Ralph's, Walmart, CVS, Meijers, Krogers, etc.  I have been finding VitaFrute cocktails at my local Walmart and CVS stores, so I am a happy girl! :-)

  4. The coconut water one sounds delicious! And I love the idea of having cocktails all ready to go in the fridge...we've had a lot of impromptu bbqs with friends and neighbors this summer, and this would be so convenient.
