At the first installment 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—Chicago's Lynn House (of Blackbird restaurant) dazzled the crowd and took the crown with her Diamonds & Pears cocktail. 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.
