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.

Channing Centeno gives the classic spritz template—low-ABV, bitter and bubbly—a modern update. Refreshing and tart, his take pairs delicate St-Germain, bolstered by a duo of bitter liqueur and dry vermouth, with a generous dose of Schöfferhofer Grapefruit, a citrus-laced German wheat beer.
¾ ounce St-Germain
¾ ounce Noilly Prat Original Dry vermouth
½ ounce Martini Bitter
3 ounces Grapefruit Schöfferhofer
Top with sparkling water
Garnish: grapefruit wheel and sage leaf
Build over ice in a wine glass. Garnish with a grapefruit wheel and a sage leaf.
