Highball 2022

November 1, 2022 | Steven Hargrove

Patrons were met with a magical afternoon of cocktails and fun at this year’s Highball on August 14. Over five hundred guests tried creations by Atlanta’s top mixologists, crowning Robert Thornton and his “The Queen Bee” cocktail the winner. While raising money for the Museum, guests also helped us be more sustainable. Led by our Green Team, we composted nearly 7,500 plant-based cups and 121 pounds of food scraps. We are grateful to all who attended and relaunched this annual competition, and we send an extra special thank you to Brown-Forman for its generous sponsorship and donation.
