Finished my submission for the @lbdistillers bartending competition.
Walk the Plank is about that moment in life when you have to dive into the deep end and sink or swim. When I decided that I had to start over three days before I submitted the drink I knew it was one of those moments. The name Walk the Plank popped into my head immediately. Which is a fitting name for a Touchwood oaked gin and Knock on Wood amber rum punch that I had in mind. More to come on this drink later, but for now come Walk the Plank @saborosoyxe soon!
