Mixin’ It Up: Basil Hayden’s Autumn Harvest

Mixin’ It Up: Basil Hayden’s Autumn Harvest

Well, it’s time to start packing away the summer clothes and begin ushering in the inevitable winter  months.  I figured, what better way to do that then mix up a cocktail that epitomizes the changing of the seasons.  Created by world renowned mixologist Charles Joly, this is about as good as it gets for seasonal mixes.  Basil Hayden’s believes that the “seasonal cocktail is the perfect combination of our bourbon’s trademark spicy finish with sweet cherry liqueur.  Inspired by the warm colors and spicy flavors of the Fall Season, Basil Hayden’s Autumn Harvest is the perfect hearty cocktail to enjoy during this year’s Thanksgiving celebration!”  Happy Thanksgiving!!!
