This Monday, The Punch Wars descended upon Houston's Reef, wowing guests with a competition of Olympic-sized proportions,
featuring the movers and shakers in the world of mixology. Utilizing a fully
stocked supply of GREY GOOSE Vodka, contenders tried their luck in contests
like The Pouring Sprint, the Garnish Styling Challenge and Best Behind-the-Bar
Chef Bryan Caswell, Melissa Young of Tales of the Cocktail, and Grey Goose brand master, Aaron Rodonis served as judges.
The final battle of the evening had contenders competing to create the ultimate
punch (using a secret ingredient). A big congrats to Kris Sowell of Coppa Ristorante Italiano, for rising to the challenge with her winning recipe, Orange You Glad it's Punch Season (we are). Sowell will head to the final battle in Miami on October 16.
