Franklin Mortgage and Investment Co., the stylish, boozy hideaway that most recently added GQ’s Top 25 Cocktail Bars to its growing list of accolades, has rolled out a new cocktail menu for fall months. This latest update, like those in the past, is the result of near constant tinkering and experimenting by the Franklin’s team of mixologists. This latest cocktail list revision doesn’t necessarily smack of all new offerings. Many of the drinks are entirely new creations, while others are favorites that are making a return from last fall. Click through to see the entire revamped menu.

The Flowing Bowl
because sometimes the answer is punch in your mouth

Punch was the grandaddy of the cocktail. We at the
Franklin love this oft-misunderstood beverage. All punches are served in single servings($12), for four to six($42) and small($100) and large($200) bowls. Bowls take time to prepare and imbibe, and meant to be an experience to share among friends. Think of it as the sixteenth and seventeenth century equivalent of bottle service.
