Jul 18, 2014 12:00 pm

Tuesday night was the Chivas Regal Masters Grand Final at Manhattan's NoMad Hotel, where 13 of the world's best bartenders competed against each other in the battle of Chivas Regal whisky.

A bowlful of American heritage to liven up a party

Punches, which could be credited as being the Founding Fathers to the cocktails we know today, were an American fixture that kept us cool through warmer months some 200 years ago.

Heat Up Your Summer With The Michelada Beer Cocktail
