Franklin Celebrates Anniversary with Throwback Menu

As of May 21st The Franklin Mortgage and Investment Co. is now three years old. To celebrate this milestone The Franklin, lead by Head Bartender Al Sotack, has come up with a special “Best Of” menu. The “Best Of” will feature drinks from the first and second of The Franklin’s quarterly-changing menus from back in 2009.

Offered from June 4th to June 30th the list starts with the usual “Required Reading”, but now with a selection of classics from when The Franklin was just starting out, like the Champs Elysses. Followed by the “Easy Going” section (for softer cocktails like Main Line Wine) and “The Flowing Bowl” – returning three punch bowl favorites – the menu revives all The Franklin’s best concoctions. “Rebellious Spirits” get two pages of the menu, as usual, but brings back everything from the Inland Julep to the Royal Burgh. The list finishes up by adding cocktails like Restraining Order and Cowboy Killer (one of Philadelphia magazine’s 20 best drinks in Philadelphia) back to the “I Asked Her For Water, She Brought Me Gasoline” menu.

Congratulate The Franklin by trying some of their throwback offerings, but do it before July 1st, when they change once again to the Mid-Summer menu.
