Cocktail Challenge: peanut butter 

The grown-up's PB&J

The PB&J: "P-nut-Bourbon Julep"

The PB&J: "P-nut-Bourbon Julep"

Andrea Bauer

Challenged with peanut butter by Patrick Henaghan of Michael Jordan's Steak House, Mike Freeman, a bartender at the Palm, thought of breakfast—he likes his pancakes with peanut butter and maple syrup. "I kind of ran with those two components," he says. Eventually he arrived at this thermos-ready PB&J, the "P'nut-Bourbon Julep."

Who's Next

Freeman has challenged Brendan Smith of Spiaggia with yellow mustard. "No wonder he didn't tell me," Smith said. "I hate yellow mustard."
