Drinks for Designated Drivers
By Chris Cochran
The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), in partnership with bars and restaurants throughout California will encourage the use of interesting and creative new non-alcoholic drink concoctions as “DDrinks,” an alternative to just water or soft drinks for those who have the important role of designated sober driver.
DDrink recipes were submitted by 12 food and drink establishments in Sacramento, Santa Barbara, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles. OTS has added an interactive Facebook tab to support the DDrink recipes, providing easy access to patrons who may want to recreate one of the 12 featured drinks at home.
“These drinks are unique and were created by skilled bartenders throughout the state who recognize the importance of offering sober drivers a tastier drink option rather than resorting to the usual cola or plain water. By choosing to remain sober, drivers are helping to ensure that our streets are safer and lives are being spared,” said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the Office of Traffic Safety
