Punch was the grandaddy of all cocktails, meant for sharing amongst friends and enhancing social engagements. Showcasing amazing barkeeps around the country isn’t easy, but it sure is delicious in the nation’s sixth annual punch competition. The theme of the competition is large format, and the participating bartenders are given 30 minutes to prepare 1 punch bowl featuring 1 bottle of spirits along with their special ingredients. Together with top barkeeps around the country, Punch Kings is preserving the “The Original Bottle Service”.
