GIN FOR THE WIN
Zephyr's rebrand has made its way to Oklahoma
Zephyr Gin has been around since 2008, but the owners rebranded recently, and Oklahoma is the third state to see the rebrand. The gin is made by a British distillery—unnamed in the marketing materials—and the quality is solid. More surprising is the remarkably low price point, more in keeping with a mass-produced London Dry Gin than a well-crafted gin that focuses on elderflower and elderberry. We asked Brandon Folkers, the bar manager at O Bar, to make an easy to replicate cocktail for gin lovers.
1 1/2 ounces Zephyr Black
1/2 ounce Aperol
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
1/4 ounce simple syrup
Shake with ice, and serve up in a coupe glass, garnish with orange peel.
