Here’s who won this year’s Holiday Cocktail Competition


Who is finally ready to get into the holiday spirit(s)? On November 14th over 250 guests joined us for the return of (614) and Beam Suntory’s ever-popular Holiday Cocktail Competition. We kicked off the holiday season by sampling 18 unique and festive cocktails from some of the best bars in Columbus. Delicious drinks, tasty appetizers, and good times were had by all.

Our panel of esteemed judges sipped each hand-crafted elixir and completed the difficult duty of selecting the top three. The numerous guests of the Holiday Cocktail Competition were also tasked with a challenging job: choosing their favorite drink.

After two fun-filled hours, the results were in.

First Place: Worthington Tavern- “Fred Astaire and Ginger”

Second Place: The Crest-  “Don Paw”

Third Place: High Bank- “Jest in Case”

Fan Favorite: Barrel & Boar- “Baby, It’s Cold War Outside”
