Jenny Adams, the ubiquitous Energizer Bunny is liquor journalism, has joined forces with Gianfranco Verga and Gardner Dunn to organize and host "New York Loves Japan - East Village Punch Party," a benefit to aid the citizens of that beleaguered country.
The event will take from from 7 PM to 10 PM Monday, April 11 at the East Village's Summit Bar (Avenue C at 9th Street). A $20 donation will gain you entry to a world of six hand-crafted, Japanese-inspired punches, which will be in handy reach on the bartop, and tunes by DJ Kimiko Masuda. You can refill your cup as often as you like. No word on the makeup of the punches, but they're likely to include some of the following ingredients, which also happen to be sponsors of the event: Pernod Absinthe, Belvedere vodka, Sailor Jerry Rum, Corazon Tequila, Leblon Cachaça, Beefeater Gin and The Tippling Bros.'

The bar staff will also be mixing up and selling amazing Yamazaki Japanese whiskey cocktails all night long.
