Restaurant Takes Food, Cocktails to a Higher Level

Scratch Kitchen and Cocktails takes the craft of cocktails to a level not often found in Oklahoma, making dozens of syrups and liqueurs in-house and using only fresh-squeezed juices. In the kitchen, Scratch makes nearly everything from, well, scratch, from the ketchup and mayonnaise to the stocks and sauces. Whether dining in their historic building or attending an event at our rustic event space, The Mercury, you’re sure to enjoy the taste of food and cocktails from Scratch. Brady Sexton, proprietor of Scratch, located at 132 W. Main St. in Norman, kindly shared with our readers their recipes for a unique cocktail, a seasonal favorite that “celebrates the flavors of warmer weather combined with savory winter notes,” and a salmon dish he says is “emblematic of what we do: simple recipes using great ingredients.” For more information on this popular gathering spot, call 801.2900 or visit
