Vincent Stipo, the man tending bar at Vernick, not only has the best beard stubble in Philadelphia, but his summer drink ranks as one of my favorite submissions thus far. Here’s what he had to say:
The lineup for the 2014 Taste of the Nation fundraiser for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign has been finalized. More than thirty restaurants including Serpico, Will and Vernick Food and Drink will be participating at the April 27th event. Tickets are on sale now fro the event which will take place at the Hotel Monaco. General admission tickets are $95 and VIP tickets (which come with an early admission time ar $145).
In this week’s City Paper, Adam Erace takes a look at the history of milk punch and the version that Vincent Stipo of Vernick Food and Drink has on his menu. Meal Ticket also has Stipo’s recipe for milk punch in case you’re looking for a weekend project.
Otherwise try milk punch for yourself at Vernick, or make it a vertical tasting and get a second version of the historical drink from George Costa at Petruce et al.
