The 3rd Annual Mutineer Magazine Red Carpet Party presented by Chinaco Tequila and Luxardo on November 6 will play host to The King’s Ginger Holiday Cocktail Competition. Sponsored by The King’s Ginger, the competition will feature eight Napa Valley bartenders who must create an original cocktail highlighting the emphatically ginger liqueur. Today we will highlight the King’s Ginger Holiday Cocktail Competition cocktail submission of bartender Steve Middler of Morimoto in Napa.
Orenge Yaki (Burnt Orange)
by Steve Middler, Morimoto
3/4 oz. Chateau Montifaud Cognac
2 oz. burnt orange juice
1/4 oz. Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
2 egg whites
1 tsp. Szechuan peppercorn
1 tsp. fine sugar
Cut orange in half, place in saute pan and burn. Cool and juice the orange. Strain through cheesecloth. Combine burnt orange juice, The King’s Ginger Liqueur, and Chateau Montifaud Cognac; shake and pour into a martini glass. Add Godiva Chocolate Liqueur gently down side of martini glass so it layers. Whip egg whites, peppercorns and sugar into a foam. Add foam to the top of the drink.
Stay tuned as we post the remaining cocktail submissions over the next three days.
