Hooch hardware

Gazette staff March 28th, 2012

Corkscrews, shakers and bottle openers, oh my! Purchasing the tools of the trade could become more convenient come November.

A measure to legalize the sale of non consumable drinking “accessories” at liquor stores passed the House several weeks ago on a 64-27 vote.

If House Joint Resolution 1015 passes the Senate, the question, which amends the Oklahoma Constitution, will be left up to the people of Oklahoma.

To allow nonalcoholic beverages (or mixers) on the shelves, or not?

That has been the quandary for the legislation’s author, Rep. Colby Schwartz, who probably needs a drink after dealing with competing stakeholders about the definition of “mixer.” His original version allowed the sale of such indulgences in liquor stores, but those provisions were omitted.
