Alive's Cocktail Contest

Columbus Alive

Ever wonder what you'd look like in cocktail form? How your personality traits would translate into various liquors and mixers? No? Just us?

Well, anyway, we recently enlisted five of the city's most creative bartenders to take a shot at capturing the paper's personality in drink form by designing signature Alive cocktails. The only rule: We're serious drinkers here, so absolutely no Apple Pucker.

We were blown away by what they came up with.

Several of the mixologists were inspired by our penchant for writing about local businesses, incorporating a bunch of Ohio- and Columbus-grown ingredients in very interesting ways. And we were duly impressed by the various attempts to recreate our logo in drink form.
