Crystal maker Baccarat and liquor maker Basil Hayden have combined to create a special cocktail menu that will be served through June 19 at the Bar and Grand Salon at the Baccarat Hotel, as well as at the Tony Awards on Sunday, June 16 at the David H. Koch Theater.

At the theater, The Baccarat x Basil Hayden speakeasy will welcome Tony Awards nominees, presenters, and spirits enthusiasts alike to pay homage to the diverse culture, dynamic talent, and remarkable impact of the theater community. The space will be brought to life with Baccarat’s signature vivid red and gold paired with the natural elements of dark wood to create an immersive treasure trove.

Those in attendance will be presented with meticulously crafted cocktails inspired by the Tony Awards featuring several Basil Hayden permanent expressions, including Dark Rye, Malted Rye, Toast, and the brand’s original Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

Guests can also experience the official signature cocktail of the evening, the Basil Hayden 75, specifically crafted to be sipped from the Baccarat Masséna Coupe, along with the Baccarat Boulevardier, the refreshing “Spritz” probe and the curtain-closing Standing Ovation, each to be served in Baccarat glassware.

Select serves from the Basil Hayden x Baccarat Speakeasy cocktail menu will be available at the Baccarat Hotel.
