Grays on Main Rolls Out a New Cocktail Menu for Fall

Posted By on Wed, Nov 6, 2013 at 5:56 AM

I'm embarrassed to admit I haven't yet made it down to Franklin to try out Grays on Main. Folks who have been there seem to be pretty pleased with the experience, but feel free to share yours in the comments below so we'll all know what we're getting into.

If you're looking for a reason to visit, perhaps the new seasonal cocktail menu will get you (me) off the couch and onto I-65 South. The previous menu was already innovative, with a special emphasis on 19th century brandy-based cocktails. For autumn, they have created new drinks featuring the flavors of the season like apple, ginger, fig and molasses.

Other new additions are special French press hot cocktails which serve two people in an interactive fashion, as patrons watch the infusion being created right in front of them. One particular cocktail that employs this process is the Herringbone, which heats vintage Armagnac, sweet vermouth, and rare Madeira with house-made Earl Grey tea and Angostura bitters in a French press at the table.

Grays is also whipping up half-liter batches of punch drinks which can be shared by up to eight people. (Or just one if you've been out shopping for holiday presents.) Grays also recently launched an online cocktail tutorial series that can be found at and plans to offer cocktail classes at the beginning of 2014, taught by PourTaste owners Jon and Lindsay Yeager.
