Six local bartenders turned out for the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival's second annual Mixologist Competition and, thanks to a creative blend, Charleston Grill's Jason Hall has emerged victorious.

The cocktail involves several key things: cloves, star anise, Woodford Reserve bourbon, ginger, mint, and a bit of time.
