Before the big night (that would be the Emmys ‘natch) the stars lined up at the Four Seasons’ in Beverly Hills for the Basil Hayden Bourbon Suite at the HBO Luxury Lounge.
Guests took a break before the big night and played a round of mad libs while enjoying Basil Hayden HBO-themed cocktails including:
Stop and Sip Julep: Inspired by Curb Your Enthusiasm (Bourbon with lime juice, simple syrup, mint leaves and “quality” ginger ale)
Dragon Dance: Inspired by Game of Thrones (Bourbon with Serrano or jalapeno pepper, simple syrup, lime juice and blackberries)
Running Mate: Inspired by Veep
Bees Knees: Inspired by Boardwalk Empire (Bourbon with lemon juice, honey and fresh ginger, garnished with fresh basil)
We’ll be trying these out this weekend! Let us know which ones you like.
