    Drinks (2009–2011)

    I work at The Franklin and I'm fairly certain Alex wouldn't mind if I shared the specs. *fingers crossed* 1.5 Reposado Tequila (We used Siembra Azul but I bet El Tesoro is also delicious) .5 oz Mescal ( We used Sombra but Vida sounds like an ideal substitution) .25 oz Agave Syrup Build in julep tin. Add crushed ice. "Swizzle" til frost forms on the tin. Add more crushed ice. 2 short straws. Garnish with mint. Garnish mint with All Spice dram (We used an atomizer) and expressed orange peel. Hope that helps! Colin
  2. "I also tried a Chancellor: 2 oz. blended Scotch 1 oz. ruby port 1/2 oz. French vermouth 2 dashes orange bitters But there's still a lot of port left in the bottle, so I could use some other suggestions! Anyone have any favourites? Kent Wang" I've been messing around with a variation on The Philadelphia Scotsman from the Savoy. I don't have it in front of me but I think the Savoy calls for 1 hooker of applejack, 1 hooker of port, the juice of half of an orange, top w/ ginger ale. What I've come up with is: 2 Lairds BIB 1 Port .5 Ginger syrup .5 Lemon juice .5 Orange juice shake/2x strain/collins/top w/ club soda. It's quite tasty if I do say so myself. Also, I messed around with The Chancellor as well. Trying to make it less desert-y. I cut the port to a .5, up the vermouth to .75 and make Punt E Mes instead. To me, a much more elegant drink. Colin
