Picture of Custom Drink Muddlers (+ The Perfect Mojito Recipe)
Its summertime, and you know what that means......no not mosquitos- the bat house you built should take care of those.....it means mojitos!

But before you start making my favorite (and Hemingway's favorite) mixed drink, you'll need something to crush, mash, and muddle those mint leaves. I will show you how to make your very own quick, easy, and custom muddler.

I must give credit to my good friend Daniel Warren for coming up with the wood dowel muddler idea; I just upgraded it. 

I hope you enjoy, and please vote for me in the Pocket Sized Contest by clicking "vote" above!
