Thinking of Drinking: RAMMY Nominee -- Farmhouse Punch

Cocktail aficionados have an excellent opportunity through June 18-- try each of the nominated cocktails for the RAMMY Awards "Beverage/Mixology Program of the Year" at Bourbon Steak, ChurchKey, EatFoodGroup, Estadio and Room 11.   

The Farmhouse Punch, by Greg Engert of Churchkey and Birch and Barley, definitely hits you with refreshing citrus sensation as flavors of lemon and grapefruit mix with peppercorn syrup, vodka and Rayon Vert, a Belgian Pale Ale from Green Flash Brewing Co. of San Diego.

.75 ounces of vodka
.25 ounces, or less, of absinthe
.5 ounces of lemon juice
1 ounce of grape fruit juice
.5 ounces of peppercorn syrup

Shake and top with Rayon Vert.

Diners who purchase a RAMMY cocktail at any of the five restaurants until June 18 will be eligible to win two tickets to the RAMMY gala on June 24. Consumers will fill out an information card for each RAMMY drink purchase and a winner will be chosen at random on June 18 at the end of the promotion.
