Basil Hayden’s 8th Night Toddy
Imbibing with your friends and loved ones has long been one of the most festive traditions of the holiday season, no matter what holiday you’re celebrating – and more often than not it’s with a traditional cocktail like a hot toddy.
If you’re looking for a warm way to celebrate the 8 nights of Hanukkah, what better way to warm up from the frigid winter weather than with a traditional hot toddy? Though the hot toddy was originally used to cure symptoms of the common cold, it is now the perfect way to warm up during the cold holiday season. It is a warm, spicy alternative that tastes as good as it looks.
Basil Hayden’s Bourbon teamed up with top Miami mixologist Luca Zanirato to create the 8th Night Toddy – a warm cocktail that combines sweet honey, cinnamon and citrus flavors make for a recipe that stands up to the cold winter breeze and brings out the trademark, spicy finish of Basil Hayden’s Bourbon.
