Palmer House Treetini

I had a Treetini cocktail at the Potter's Lounge in the Chicago Palmer
House Hilton a few weeks ago. Yummy for me though my colleagues
thought it too sweet. The hotel claims that a tree will be planted for
every Treetini ($12) ordered. The cocktail is made with Veev acai
spirit, St. Germain liqueur, pomegranate liqueur, and fresh lemon juice.
