Raise your Glass and Say “Ganbei” – Chinese for “Cheers!”

Hailing as one of the longest and most celebrated holidays in the world, Chinese New Year is packed with timeless traditions: Asian meals, the gathering of family, wishes of good fortune and locals fully clad in red attire, considered the color of luck. From San Francisco to the Land Down Under and everywhere in between, the Chinese New Year celebration is open to all. So this year #PlanToParty and usher in the Year of the Horse this month with The Red Runner, created specially for this holiday! Chinese New Year is Friday, January 31st.

The cocktail combines the kick of tart cherry juice, like that of the incoming Year of the Horse, the Far East flavor of lemongrass and toasted notes of TANDUAY Silver Asian Rum.
