The Columbus Musueum of Art wants your help deciding the signature drink for their wonderous fundraising gala Wonderball.
The museum has tapped four of the top mixologist in town — Alex Eiler of Strongwater Food + Spirits, William Willis III of The Avenue Steak Tavern, Sean Ward of Giuseppe’s Ritrovo, and Jillian Smith of MOUTON — to come up with their own custom cocktail for the event featuring local liquor from Middle West Spirits.
The cocktails are CMA Spritz, Wonderball Winter Tonic, Cheshire’s Smile and Winter Wonder Punch (click the links for each drink’s recipe.) You can vote for your favorite with your dollars using local crowdfunding platform Billion: $1 equals 1 vote. All donation dollars are fully tax-deductible and support the Museum’s JPMorgan Chase Center for Creativity.
The drink with the most votes by January 15 will be served as the featured beverage at Wonderball. All attendees will receive it when they enter the event, and it will be available for purchase at bars throughout the evening.
Wonderball will take place Saturday, January 28 at the Columbus Museum of Art. Tickets are available online through January 16 for $100, after which the price will increase to $125, and $135 at the door.
