Yep, you should celebrate your team making a touchdown with some Basil Hayden bourbon. Part shandy, part bourbon — any Super Bowl will be a win with this cocktail.
Look for bright green leaves free of dark spots. The leaves should be dry and are best kept wrapped in a paper towel in a bag when storing in the refrigerator.
When using basil in a hot recipe, add it only at the last minute. Otherwise you will lose the flavor and fragrance of the herb.
