Thirsting to see an innocent green apple ritually sacrificed in the name of an English mystic? Score a stool at Rittenhouse speakeasy Franklin Mortgage to witness The Battle of Blythe Road, a three-booze-and-wine 'tail inspired by Aleister Crowley's magical assault on WB Yeats outside the Temple of the Golden Dawn. And if all you want is some peanut butter bourbon inspired by a Buckwheat Boyz meme, yeah, they've also got that among their lineup of new 'tails
Yeats's pro boxer bodyguard ended the original battle, but the Franklin's version is a true triumph of the spirits. Particularly aged rum, Old Tom Gin, and absinthe
The Italian Market has notes of rye, vermouth, cardamaro, peaches, and long hots... much like this drink named after it
With A Baseball Bat, meanwhile, is named for It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time!!!, the dancing banana meme craze of 2001, aka the second best thing the Buckwheat Boyz inspired after this PB&J-tail combining two cream-berry liqueurs, brown sugar syrup, and a shot of 'nut butter Old Forester
Combining two drinks that, just like men dressed up as cowboys, never go out of style, the Pickleback Mountain julep's a crushed ice tin cup of absinthe and rye sweetened with a bread-and-butter-pickle-brine syrup garnished with a neckerchief cucumber, dill, and allspice.
