Long Hots, Cinnamon and Noilly Pratt: New Cocktail Menu At Franklin Mortgage

franklin-mortgage-carousel

I will say one thing about the crew at the Franklin. They have never, in 18 iterations, put out a dull cocktail menu.

This one is their spring board, mixing all manner of things that shouldn’t be in drinks (like olive oil) with other things that shouldn’t be in drinks (like maple-balsamic gastrique) and, if history repeats, somehow coming out the other side with something notable, occasionally remarkable, and sometimes just plain strange.


Anyway, I love these guys primarily because they're nuts. And because I always know that I've been drinking when I try to walk back up the stairs again. So now that the new menu is out, you know where to find me.

Check out the new cocktail list after the jump.
