    Your mint died? How did you do that? I planted some more than 20 years ago just for juleps on Derby Day. Decided I don't like juleps but the mint keeps running any way. Even Roundup doesn't wipe it out.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Communists.

    I think they're tasty.

    Aaron has a great recipe using tequila instead of bourbon and epazote instead of the mint. He said it was killer last year.

    I know what you mean. I make a killer Manhattan by subbing beer for the whiskey and Cholula sauce for the bitters.

    Bourbon makes for a pretty great Bloody Mary, Comrade.

    Can I hit clean up? I don't want mint in my bourbon unless it is one of the honey 4R F yeast single barrels.

    Like Mencken, I am partial to rye in my julep. All that ice begs for Ritt BiB or WT 101 rye if on hand.
