Sometimes I’m short on New Year’s resolutions. I mean, I’m already trying as hard as I can. Do I really need to cook up more constraints? To which a friend always suggests “Eat slower and floss more.” And at the turn of every year it still works as a resolution. I could always be healthier. Even when drinking. In that spirit, VeeV sends along a “New Year, New You” cocktail. “The Eco-Aid” keeps the calorie count under 100. The alcohol, VeeV, is infused with the antioxidant-rich açaí berry. And you’ll feel even better knowing that VeeV donates $1 to the Brazilian rainforest with every bottle sold. (VeeV is also a carbon-neutral spirit, if you want to get an early start on one of the upcoming decade’s major trends.) The lemonade in the cocktail may be a little summery, but on a bitter day like this, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
