Test Kitchen-Approved

Author Notes:

Make these instead of (or alongside) Juleps for the Derby, and then make them every warm weekend thereafter. Enlist a friend to help you bash ice, or, for a larger crowd, we like to crush ice in a blender.

I hope this isn't part of that trend where we forget that bourbon is a grown-up drink consider all alterations to be improvements. Sigh.
