On Wednesday night, The Punch Wars descended upon the W Atlanta Downtown, 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
The panel of judges included Top Chef All Stars alum Richard Blais, Atlanta Magazine and SAVEUR contributor Susan Puckett, and GREY GOOSE® brand master, Aaron Rodonis.
The final battle of the evening had contenders competing to create the ultimate
punch (using a secret ingredient). A big congrats to Tom McGuire of Prohibition, for rising to the challenge with his winning recipe, L'Orange Pomme Punch. McGuire will head to the final battle in Miami on October 16.
