DUI Awareness: Battle of the Bartenders®
Published  12/14/2011 | IINC Programs

Since 1996, the Insurance Information Network of California has sponsored Battle of the Bartenders® non-alcoholic drink events across California in an effort to promote responsible drinking and safe driving.

Battling Bartenders Highlight Holiday Safety
Local law enforcement handed out citations – of merit – to area bartenders today for concocting alcohol-free drinks in honor of designated drivers.
Los Angeles-based mixologists squared off in the Battle of the Bartenders® to decide who could create the very best “mocktails” and promote responsible holiday hospitality.

Bartenders Battle to Raise DUI Awareness
Battling bartenders will descend on a downtown Los Angeles hot spot today to promote responsible holiday hospitality by competing to create the best alcohol-free mocktail.

Hosted by the Insurance Information Network of California® and L.A. LIVE, the Battle of the Bartenders® will team up the California Highway Patrol , the Los Angeles Police Department and L.A. LIVE bartenders.


Battle of the Bartenders
The blenders were revving and judges were sipping as bartenders competed to create the best “mocktails” -- cocktails without alcohol.

IINC, L.A. Live, the California Highway Patrol and the Los Angeles Police Department joined forces to promote the “Battle of the Bartenders” to focus attention on the designated driver and responsible holiday hospitality.

The Cost of a DUI
Having one more for the road might cost you more than you think. Everyone knows drinking and driving is a dangerous choice – causing injuries, property damage and even death – but most people don’t calculate the financial consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
