    A red, white, and boozy cocktail to celebrate our winners

    BH_American Gold

    The 2014 Winter Olympics are drawing to a close and there’s no doubt the athletes are celebrating their amazing accomplishments (or drowning their sorrows) in Sochi.

    Yup, Team USA once again made us proud by bringing home a handful of gold medals. So we’re celebrating in true American style, by throwing a few back! Using Basil Hayden’s Bourbon Whiskey, Rob Floyd of Los Angeles has mixed up a red, white, and boozy drink in honor of our incredible athletes. In fact, with gold medalists like Jamie Anderson, Sage Kotsenburg, and David Wise, Rob has even thrown in a pinch of gold so we can all feel like winners! (And let’s be honest, win or lose we all like a little booze!)
