Salute the Season Premiere of American Horror Story with Basil Hayden

By  October 17, 2012

We’re already grabbing our security blanket as we gear up for tonight’s premiere of American Horror Story: Asylum. Before you get the pants scared off of you, have a cup of liquid courage in the form of a spine-chilling sipper created by Rob Floyd. Don’t forget to leave the lights on!

Basil Hayden’s Living Shadow

2 parts Basil hayden’s Bourbon
¾ parts Simple Syrup
¾ parts Lemon Juice
5 grapes
Red Wine

Muddle the grapes in a mixing glass. Add the remaining ingredients, save for red wine, with ice and shake. Strain the mixture into a martini glass. Gently pour a few drops of red wine over the back end of a bar spoon wile touching the inside rim of the martini glass to make the red wine float.
