Leave it to phlebotomy students to dream up the “blood shot.”
The drink, invented by Lorain County JVS high school and adult students, won the Best Overall Award at the Zero-Proof Mix-Off held at Lorain County Community College.
The annual event focuses on fun without alcohol and stresses the dangers of drunk driving. It’s sponsored by the Safe Community Coalition through the Lorain County General Health District.
