AT THE FRANKLIN MORTGAGE AND INVESTMENT COMPANY, WE PUT OUR COCKTAILS ON A PEDESTAL, NOT WITH RHETORIC OR FLOWERY PROSE, BUT WITH FINE SPIRITS, FRESH JUICE, GREAT ICE, HOURS OF RESEARCH AND TESTING, AND A HEFTY COMMITMENT TO PRECISION. OUR BARTENDERS LOVE THE DRINKS THEY MAKE, AND SO EVERY TIME YOU GET A MIXED DRINK AT THE FRANKLIN, BE ASSURED THAT EVERY POSSIBLE ATTEMPT WAS TAKEN TO MAKE IT THE WAY IT WAS INTENDED TO BE.

BEFORE PROHIBITION, BARTENDERS WEREN’T JUST GUYS THAT GOT YOU A BEER OR POURED A SHOT. THEY WERE ARTISTS. FROM MASTERS OF THE PRE-PROHIBITION ERA LIKE JERRY THOMAS, HARRY JOHNSON, ADA COLEMAN, AND MANY MORE, WE ARE CONSTANTLY INSPIRED AND HUMBLED. NOT EVERY DRINK IS RIGHT FOR EVERY DRINKER, SO WE HOPE YOU ENGAGE OUR STAFF AND FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHAT DRINK IS RIGHT FOR YOU — BE IT ONE OF OUR OWN, A MODERN CLASSIC, OR A TIPPLE STRETCHING DEEP IN THE HISTORY OF MIXED DRINKS. CHEERS!
