My next series of Campari America interviews focuses on bartenders who live outside of major cities, talented creatives who are killing it in their local markets. First up, Bob Peters. Bob Peters is the head bartender at The Punch Room located on the top level of the Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, North Carolina, and he is bringing serious cocktail game to the Queen City. I discovered Bob Peters through Instagram - he has mastered social media as a means to promote his bar and to share his drinks with the world. He is now an Instagram powerhouse with over 35k followers. I must admit, I have studied his posts carefully, often needing to wipe the drool off of my phone afterwards (and I don't think I am alone).
