Visit Gahanna’s Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Herbal Cocktail Trail

Visit Gahanna’s popular Herbal Cocktail Trail returns for fall and winter 2021-2022 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 fall and winter seasons, Visit Gahanna has tapped the city’s herbal roots again and enlisted six of Gahanna’s signature restaurants, bars, pubs, and winery to create mouthwatering new seasonal cocktails that live up to the city’s Herb Capital title.

Now through March 2022, six 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 new prize this year: a flask boasting their “Herbal Cocktail Trailblazer” status. Earn an Herbal Cocktail Trailblazer Flask simply by visiting six of the partner restaurants and pubs and purchasing a signature herbal cocktail.

Participation in the Herbal Cocktail Trail is easy. 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 sticker for each of the signature herbal cocktails purchased at the partner businesses. Once Herbal Cocktail Trail participants receive six stamps at any one or more of the libation stations, they can bring their passports to the Gahanna Visitor Center, Monday-Friday 10 AM - 6 PM, Saturday 10 AM - 4 PM, and redeem them for a branded flask.

*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.
