Cocktail Tasting Menus At The Franklin

Head bartender Sara Justice creates a cocktail tasting menu.

Franklin_MortgageIt’s time to forget all the chef tasting menus for a moment and have some real fun — with a cocktail tasting menu.

The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co’s head bartender Sara Justice has created a cocktail tasting menu for guests who may want to try a little bit of everything (or just want to get really boozed up).

The tasting menu will run you $65 per person (not counting tax and tip), but it will also feature five courses, plus two supplemental drinks–meaning that you’re basically paying less than $10 per drink. Justice hopes to feature a new tasting menu every few months that will be inspired seasonally and centered on a cuisine, place, or culture.

But what’s important right now is the current tasting menu, inspired by Justice’s Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, featuring flavors such as “Shoo Fly Pie” and “Birch Beer.”

“What I try to create for people is a memorable experience and this menu is something that is both fun and personal for me,” Justice said.

Prior to The Franklin, Justice worked at Holeman & Finch in Atlanta where she was named one of the best new mixologists by Food & Wine and was featured in Zagat’s 30 under 30.
