American Horror Story & Basil Hayden’s Living Shadow
If you haven’t seen FX’s hit paranormal drama American Horror Story, then you’re missing out. The same can be said if you haven’t yet tried Basil Hayden’s Kentucky Bourbon. Lucky for you, tomorrow night you’ll have the opportunity to kill two crows with one skull. To celebrate Wednesday’s premiere of American Horror Story: The Asylum, top LA mixologist Rob Floyd created Basil Hayden’s® Living Shadow. This cocktail combines the tartness of red grapes and lemon juice with spicy Basil Hayden’s® Bourbon, and in an ode to the show’s delightfully disturbing tone, the libation is then topped off with an eerie red wine float! And the spicy finish?… It’s to die for!
