Right off the bat, I think I should say that I am not recommending that anyone actually drink frosé. I am not endorsing this mystifying fad for frozen rosé wine. I am not condoning its consumption. There are already so many alcoholic beverages that are perfect for summer (the classic gin and tonic, mai tais and zombies, salty dogs for when you’re sweaty and cold beers from a foam cooler when you’re not), so I’m not sure why anyone would want a wine slushy.

No, he uses his happy hour lists like maps to discount adventure — incredible deals on simple pours from some of the best and most interesting bottles he keeps behind the bar. We’re talking a 12-year-old Redbreast for $7.77. A ...

The Franklin has been having a busy season.

A few weeks back, they turned the upstairs bar into a tiki lounge complete with its own cocktail menu.

Then there was the 8th anniversary, which the Franklin Bar (Formerly Franklin Mortgage) celebrated with a solar system of booze — a menu which, it should be noted, will be available all summer long.

And now, they’re releasing the official summer 2017 cocktail menu. It’s an impressive list, assembled in a new way, rigorously tasted and tested by the staff. And we’ve got the whole thing ...
