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!
