Retirement has allowed Maria Sharapova to relax her eating and drinking habits. The five-time Grand Slam champion’s Instagram feed often features a glass of wine or other alcoholic drink. Now the Russian is promoting Basil Hayden’s, the lightest-bodied bourbon whiskey.
The former WTA world No.1 Sharapova says that her favorite time to unwind with Basil Hayden’s is between 6 pm and 7 pm. This spirit is advertised through hashtag “6ourbon7time”. One of their slogans is: “We say the glass is half full, and the week is half over.”
Sharapova likes this drink plain with ice or in her favorite cocktail.
Shake in a shaker:
2 parts Basil Hayden’s bourbon
3/4 part simple syrup
3/4 part juice
Strain in a glass and top with an Amarena.
