Tonight: New Winter Cocktail Menu At Franklin Mortgage

Tonight, the Franklin will release their 16th cocktail menu–and the first to be produced under the command of new head barman, Mike Treffehn. True, Treffehn and ex-head-bartender Al Sotack collaborated on the thing in order to make everything run smoothly, but still–congrats, Mike. It looks like a killer list.

And as if a new cocktail menu wasn’t enough, the bar has also taken a stab at updating their beer and wine programs. Oh, and they have another class coming up, too–an introduction to cognac course, taught by certified cognac professional and Franklin bartender Mary Rose Braun. You can get more information on courses at

But in the meantime…
