It’s August and the crew over at the Franklin have a new “Extra Credit” menu at the bar. This time they’re highlighting mint with five cool, classic, mint-heavy cocktails for this hottest month of the year.
The Extra Credit menu is available all the time, but the Franklin also uses it like their happy hour menu–and everything on it is just $11 between 5-7pm, Sunday through Thursday. There are also $2 High Life ponies and a $7 daily punch, just to sweeten the deal.
Check out the full menu below.
Lemon Hill at 25th and Aspen Streets in Fairmount closed suddenly last night. The bar and restaurant from the Franklin Mortgage team came onto the scene back in early 2012 with Mitch Prensky in the kitchen. Prensky didn’t last too long and there always seemed to be movement in and out of the kitchen and management of the establishment.
General manager Aaron Siak posted the following on Facebook:
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.
