Tip Your Bartender: Purple Pineapple Project, Brooklyn

Channing Centeno gives the classic spritz template a modern update with St-Germain and citrus-laced German wheat beer.

Welcome to a special two-week encore of “Tip Your Bartender,” a social media initiative from PUNCH connecting our readers with bar teams across the country via Instagram. Back by popular demand, we’re bringing a new group of drink-makers from across the country to revisit the classics—from the spritz to the El Presidente.

Between June 15th and June 26th, for every dollar tipped to bar teams, the Bacardi family of brands has generously committed to matching it with an equal gift to our charitable partner, Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation.
