Old Fashioned



Christina Basham is a 16-year hospitality veteran from Columbus, Ohio where she is President of the Columbus Chapter of the United States Bartenders' Guild. In addition to entering her 5th year as a board member on the local level, she was also recently appointed Chair of the USBG National Education Committee. She's had the pleasure of serving cocktails and managing front-of-house teams in almost every type of venue you can imagine, with most of the last 9 years dedicated to craft spaces in Central Ohio. In the summer of 2020, she returned to The Ohio State University to finish her pursuit of a B.A. in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies.

When she stumbles upon some free time, she enjoys relaxing with her wife and two pit bull rescue pups, tending to her plants and garden, singing karaoke at her neighborhood haunt, or working on her hospitality enterprise, Bubbles & Agave Creative.
