At the 17th annual Zero-Proof Mix Off – a public, no-cost event – attendees sample zero-proof concoctions while increasing their awareness of sober driving and zero-proof drink options. Businesses, agencies, bartenders, student clubs, and other groups that want to enter a drink into this competition may apply here by Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018. Twenty-two applications will be accepted.
Nearly 500 people typically attend the Zero-Proof Mix Off every year. The event provides a unique and effective opportunity to connect with potential clients and customers while supporting safe driving behaviors. To participate simply apply, then create and serve a zero-proof drink. Judges choose the best drinks based on taste, presentation, and creativity.
This year, the Zero-Proof Mix Off is on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 at Lorain County Community College Spitzer Conference Center, 189 Innovation Dr., Elyria, OH 44035. Mixers may set up as early as 3:30 p.m. and judging begins at 5 p.m. The public arrives at 5:30 and the event lasts until 7:30 p.m.
The Lorain County Safe Community Coalition, conducted through Lorain County Public Health, hosts this event to increase awareness of sober driving and zero-proof options. After the Mix Off, all drink recipes from participating groups will be featured in a recipe book that can be picked up at no-cost at local Discount Drug Mart locations.
