Not long ago, we announced that Artusi’s outdoor patio and slushy machine were open for the summer. Artusi’s bar manager, Adam Fortuna, has crafted the first adult slushy and punch cocktails of the season. The Pink Hook slushy consists of rye whiskey, Punt e Mes, maraschino, and fresh grapefruit juice and costs $10. It’s icy delicious!
On the punch front is Bambi’s Red-Eye Punch, consisting of Breckenridge bourbon, Smith & Cross Jamaican rum, Rooibos red tea, citrus-sage syrup, fresh grapefruit juice, fresh lime juice, luxardo maraschino, and fresh sage. This tasty punch recently prevailed over six other bartenders’ cocktails to win the Punch Kings Competition at the Cochon 555 event in Seattle in March and will be a contender in the final round of the national competition in Denver on June 1st and 2nd. Adam will be competing against the winners of the other U.S. cities at the Cochon 555 Punch Kings finals in Denver on June 1st and 2nd. Stop by Artusi and try Adam’s winning punch on the current cocktail menu for $9.
Artusi is open seven days of the of the week starting at 5pm. Reservations can be made online or by calling 206.678.2516.
