Have you ever tried a cocktail — on draft?
Open Container at the Boxyard puts big batches of cocktails on-tap, adding delightful fizz to traditionally flat beverages.
French Rose: a mixture of gin, lemon, simple syrup and rose liqueur ($8) at Open Container
Autumn in Oklahoma is ideal for sipping cocktails al fresco, and few patios have a better view of downtown’s skyline than Open Container, perched atop the Boxyard in the East Village at 502 E. Third St.
The bar is stocked with standard liquors and local brews, but it also has draft cocktails and pre-mixed drinks on tap. The bartender whips up a big batch of margaritas, for example. Then, like draft beer, the liquid is infused with CO2, which adds a delightful fizz to an otherwise flat cocktail.
One of the more popular draft cocktails at Open Container is the French Rose: a mixture of gin, lemon, simple syrup and rose liqueur ($8). The result is a classic fizzy French 75 without the “bubbles,” a perfectly sipable concoction for a happy hour with the gals or for watching a Tulsa sunset.
Open Container always has a couple of rotating draft cocktails on tap, and it also serves food, like hot wings, burgers and hot dogs with a gourmet twist.
