AAA Combats Drunk Driving Using Mocktails

According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, in 2013, alcohol contributed to over 12,000 accidents and almost 500 deaths on Ohio’s roads.

For the third year in a row and in an effort to encourage people to celebrate the holiday’s responsibly, AAA held a Holiday Mocktail Competition at their Zanesville location. AAA Travel Agent, Lucy McCalister, says AAA employees brainstormed together to come up with two different mocktail recipes.

"Our recipe gets put in a book that they can pick up from all the stores," said McAlister. "We have one that is a vanilla hot chocolate and then there’s another one that’s a cinnamon, cranberry pineapple mixture."

The competition was created to encourage people to include non-alcoholic fun into their holiday events.
