Official Drink of the 2013 Kentucky Bourbon Festival

Each year, during the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, a Mixed Drink Challenge determines the Official Drink of the next year's Bourbon Festival.  A number of area bars and restaurants compete for the drink that will hold the title.

Without further ado.
