Celebrate President's Day with a Tasty Cocktail | Basil Hayden's Bourbon

Basil Hayden's Presidential Cherry Spice

From our friends at Basil Hayden's Bourbon...

In honor of President's Day, Basil Hayden's Bourbon teamed up with Chicago mixologist Charles Joly to create a cocktail to honor our very first President - George Washington. Not only was George Washington famous for “chopping down a cherry tree,” but he was also a bourbon distiller himself. So to celebrate Washington’s presidency, 200 years later, we've created Basil Hayden's Presidential Cherry Spice, which combines cherry flavors with the spicy trademark finish of Basil Hayden's Bourbon.
