On Monday night, The Punch Wars descended upon Frontrunner Restaurant in LA's Santa Anita Park, 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 Greg Daniels, executive chef and owner of the Haven Collective, Katie Robbins, food writer and SAVEUR contributor, and GREY GOOSE® brand ambassador, Guillaume Jubien.
The final battle of the evening had contenders competing to create the ultimate
punch (using a secret ingredient). A big congrats to Zach Patterson, for rising to the challenge with his winning recipe, Baby Girl's on the Run. Patterson will head to the final battle in Miami next week.
