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.
For the past couple weeks, we’ve been talking to a variety of Philly chefs and bartenders, asking them what they bring with them to eat and drink when they go down the shore. And now, for the next couple weeks, we’re going to be sharing with you their favorite recipes for snacks, cocktails and other delicious things so that you, too, can eat and drink like a pro.
In the words of Franklin Mortgage’s head bartender, Mike Treffehn, “In the dog days of summer, the G+T is king. And while I’ll never say no to a standard well gin and gun tonic, at home and at my bar I like to step it up a notch.”
Finally, a class that combines learning and alcohol. On Monday, June 23rd, The Franklin Bar is hosting an Introduction to American Whiskey class. From 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. attendees will learn about the development and transformation of whiskey from its earliest days to now, engage in a Q&A with head bartender Mike “Juice” Treffehn and sample a wide range of styles of whiskey, including white, bourbon and more.
Attendees will get hands-on experience learning about American whiskey and, while there is an “agenda” (beyond getting people to drink more whiskey, we assume, which isn’t so much an agenda as the Lord’s work), Treffehn made it clear that the event is just as much about the whiskey as it is the people. This intimate class of 12 (and sometimes fewer), is meant to “cater to who is actually there,” according to Treffehn.
