Ice, Ice Baby: April Specials At Franklin Mortgage

The Franklin is doing killer monthly happy hours that they call “Extra Credit”–5pm-8pm, Monday through Friday. The deal? A few of the bar’s excellent custom cocktails, selling for just $9 a pop (which, by Franklin Mortgage standards, is a helluva deal).

This month, they’re calling the series “Ice, Ice Baby” and serving heavily iced drinks in honor of the return of the warm weather. But I’ll let them describe what they’re up to.

Theory: Nothing says warm weather like a crushed ice cocktail. These are four from menus past. Please do enjoy. And gentlemen, just so we’re clear, drinking from a straw doesn’t make you look stupid, but spilling crushed ice all over the table does.

So what four drinks are the Franklin’s tenders slinging?

F.V.K. Swizzle Beefeater gin, Cocchi Americano, cointreau, absinthe, lemon juice, grapefruit syrup, mint

Mint Julep Buffalo Trace bourbon, Demerara, mint

A Hundred Miles Off… Rum, more rum, Clement Creole shrub, Marie Brizard creme de cacao, lemon juice, grenadine

Coal Cracker Swizzle Rittenhouse Rye, galliano, lemon juice, ginger and Demerara syrup, blackberry, bitters
