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 Jason Withrow of Redd in Yountville.
