Maria Polise of Ela Is The Cochon 555 “Punch Kings” Champ

PunchKingsLogo

On June 29, in Denver, bartender Maria Polise of Ela won the Cochon 555 “Punch Kings” competition. She went up against 10 other drink-slingers who’d qualified at the various local Cochon events and, in the end, brought home the golden gloves (which is what they give you when you win–plus a 3-day trip to some heritage BBQ festival) for Philly.

So how did she do it? Apparently by mixing together a whole lot of delicious alcohol, pouring some more alcohol on top and then adding a little alcohol. You can check out her ingredient list for her award winning “Porcine Pick-Me-Up Punch” after the jump.

CowAndCurdBanner

Yesterday, NBC’s “1st Look” sent Audrina Patridge (who, near as I can tell, got her food journalism training on MTV’s The Hills) to Philly to spend a day with Rob Mitchell from the Cow and the Curd. Together, they served fried cheese curds to folks at Yards Brewery for one of their Ales Of The Revolution pairing events.

And yeah, there’s video. Because of course there’s video.


Cheese curds, beer and Audrina Patridge, right this way
