New Cocktail Menu At Franklin Mortgage

And today, head bartender Al Sotack is releasing the cocktail bar’s 14th menu–which features 8 classics and 20 new staff submissions from the likes of Sara Justice (the Florence Kelley Club) and Colin O’Neill, who started at the Franklin as a barback, now has his own night (Thursdays) and a mutant Old Fashioned called the Boss Lady on the new menu.

Check out the full board below. It goes into effect starting tonight for the customary 3-month run.
