Winning GREY GOOSE® Punch Wars Recipes

This week, at the Texas installments of the GREY GOOSE® Punch Wars—a nine-city tour pitting expert mixologists up against each other to create the ultimate punch, utilizing the full GREY GOOSE® Vodka portfolio—Dallas' Andrew Lostetter (of The Texas Grill at Marquee) and Houston's Kris Sowell (of Coppa Ristorante Italiano) took the crowns in their respective cities with winning recipes. Over the course of the next month, the Punch Wars will visit a handful of Eater cities. The winners will meet in a final Punch Wars battle in Miami.

We've got the recipes for Lostetter's The Randy's Travesty and and Sowell's Orange You Glad it's Punch Season, after the jump. Be sure to stay tuned for more event coverage and winning recipes. And don't forget to check out the video tutorials and recipes from the GREY GOOSE® Punch collection.
