Now that we're in the throes of winter, there's nothing more appealing than cozying up to a boozy beverage at home on a blustering Friday night. We've got your drink plans covered: dive into the Night Sledding cocktail from Philadelphia's Franklin Bar, a 2015 semifinalist for our Outstanding Bar Program award. General manager Sara Justice channeled the flavors of childhood when creating this herbaceous tippler featuring a cooling menthol tincture that evokes "the rush of the cool night air​" felt while sledding as a kid. Anchored by rye whiskey, full-bodied rum, and amber vermouth, this cocktail is sure to be a welcome addition to your at-home repertoire as temperatures continue to drop.
