We teamed up with Basil Hayden® to bring you One Host, Two Ways, a series where we'll be showing you two ways to decorate your space for different hosting occasions throughout the seasons. To bring the transformations to life, we called up two of our favorite interior experts: Home52 Design Resident Nicole Crowder, plus Plant Pro and Stylist Hilton Carter—check out the first episode below and watch the before-and-after magic happen.

Of course, no get-together would be complete without the drinks and snacks, so we asked Food52 Resident Samantha Seneviratne to bring along recipes just right for the party. Her pick for making crowd-pleasing cocktails: the artfully aged, spicy-yet-smooth Basil Hayden®, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (great for bourbon fans and newbies alike). And for when you don't want to break out the cocktail shaker, pour a glass of their new expression, Basil Hayden® Toast™. Featuring a brand-new brown rice mashbill, Basil Hayden® Toast™ is finished in toasted barrels for deepened notes of sweet caramel—perfect for sipping and savoring throughout the evening.
