On Monday night, The Punch Wars descended upon Denver's Second Home, 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
Routine.

The panel of judges included Stephen McCary (executive chef of Mizuna), food writer and SAVEUR contributor Ruth Tobias, 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 Tyler Lewis of TAG, for rising to the challenge with his winning recipe, Oscar Wilde's Exile. Lewis will head to the final battle in Miami on October 16.
