Visit Gahanna’s popular Herbal Cocktail trail returns with seasonal herb-infused libations to continue inspiring more happy hours, date nights, and gatherings with friends.

Born from Gahanna’s official status as the Herb Capital of Ohio, the Gahanna Convention & Visitors Bureau, also known as Visit Gahanna, originally launched the Herbal Cocktail Trail in 2017, making it the first themed cocktail trail in the state. For the winter season, Visit Gahanna has tapped the city’s herbal roots again and enlisted nine of Gahanna’s signature restaurants, bars, and pubs to create mouthwatering new seasonal cocktails that live up to the city’s Herb Capital title.

From December 1 through February 29, nine Gahanna establishments will feature a distinctly unique set of cocktails, all inspired by seasonal herbs and ingredients. Participants who complete the Herbal Cocktail Trail will score a BRAND NEW cork mug boasting their “Herbal Cocktail Trailblazer” status. Earn an Herbal Cocktail Trailblazer gift simply by visiting six of the partner restaurants and pubs and purchasing a signature herbal cocktail.

Participation in the Herbal Cocktail Trail is easy. Download and print a passport, or pick up a passport, available at any partner business, or the Gahanna Visitor Center, 110 Mill St., and start planning your unique Trail experience. Receive a passport stamp for each of the signature herbal cocktails purchased at the partner businesses. Once Herbal Cocktail Trail participants receive six stamps at the partner businesses, they can bring their passports to the Gahanna Visitor Center, Monday-Friday 10 AM - 6 PM or Saturday 10 AM - 4 PM, and redeem them for a branded gift.

*Signature cocktails are subject to change at the discretion of the partner business. Please drink responsibly. Don’t drink and drive. Learn more by calling (614) 418-9114
