If you’ve lived in Ohio long enough, you’re likely familiar with some of the state’s official symbols and designations: the state slogan, nickname, insect, and more. But you may not have realized that the Buckeye State has an officially designated drink, and it’s tomato juice. This official state beverage was determined in 1965 by the Ohio General Assembly, and it hasn’t been changed since. Here’s more behind this unique selection of tomato juice as the official state drink of Ohio.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
