Blackbird's Lynn House Wins Grey Goose's 'Punch Wars'; Heads To Miami For Finals
There was some hardcore competition Monday night at Vertigo Sky Lounge for the first-ever Grey Goose Punch Wars, but in the end it was Blackbird's talented head mixologist Lynn House who took home first prize.
Her Diamonds and Pears punch, which included Grey Goose's La Poire pear flavored vodka, was a nod to Prince's sultry hit song, Diamonds & Pearls. The contest was done in the style of the popular Food Network show, Chopped, with a secret ingredient.
Benjamin Newby (Drumbar) and Liz Pearce (The Drawing Room) came in second and third places, respectively.
House goes to Miami in October to compete in the finals.
