Though the unforgiving heat that’s kept much of the city’s inhabitants indoors of late appears to be breaking today, make no mistake, we are still in the throes of the dog days of summer. To help ease the suffering a little, Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co.’s crew has revamped their drink selection with a huge selection of crushed-ice swizzle concoctions for tipplers to chill out with. And while the bar’s Extra Credit program continues taking a break for summer, the punch program has been expanded too. New swizzle selections include the Atlantic City Conference, Applejack, ruby port, Velvet Falernum and house grenadine; and Friday Foster, a frothy mix of banana-infused Venezuelan rum, punt e mes, heavy cream, egg yolk and aromatic bitters.

New punch offerings include Well-Deserved Punch, Jamaican and Haitian rums, creme de cacao, fresh lime and pineapple juices, house strawberry-basil syrup, orange and aromatic bitters; and Regime Change Punch, bourbon, applejack, Galliano, allspice dram, fresh lemon juice, Demerara, honey, black tropical tea, Elmakule bitters.
