This week, at the DC and Denver installments of the GREY GOOSE® Punch Wars—a nine-city tour pitting expert mixologists up against each other to create the ultimate punch, utilizing the full GREY GOOSE® Vodka portfolio—Glendon Hartley (of DC's Farmers Fishers and Bakers) and Tyler Lewis (of Denver's TAG) took crowns in their respective cities with winning punch recipes. Over the course of the next month, the Punch Wars will visit a handful of Eater cities. The winners will meet in a final Punch Wars battle in Miami.
We've got the recipe for Hartley's Beat the Heat (pictured right) and Lewis' Oscar Wilde's Exile,, after the jump. Be sure to stay tuned for more event coverage and winning recipes. And don't forget to check out the video tutorials and recipes from the GREY GOOSE® Punch collection.
