Yahoo! Finance- Want some fries in that vodka? Arby's rolls out limited edition fry-flavored booze.Arby's is aiming to forge a middle ground between comfort food and cocktails in a society that loves both.
On Tuesday, the fast food chain announced the release of a limited-edition Arby’s Curly Fry and Crinkle Fry Vodka (no, really). It's the latest creative spin that companies are trying to put on traditional consumer favorites.
The 80-proof spirits are made from potato vodka and distilled with real ingredients inspired by the brand’s Curly and Crinkle Fry flavor profiles. The products retail for $59.99 and will be available in limited quantities on November 18, and in a second drop on November 22 on ArbysVodka.com.
ALRIGHT! Listen people...I know at first glance this whole idea sounds nothing short of hideous. There are few things that I would think pair together better than some wonderful vodka & curly fries due to curly fries normally being not only one of the higher-spiced french fries out there, but also just synonymous with amusement park foods. And don't get me wrong I fucking LOVE curly fries...you know what I mean though. So I was very hesitant when I came across this article until the light bulb went off in my head that a lot of vodka's out there are potato vodkas.
So if some other vodkas out there in the world are made from simple ole run-in-the-mill potatoes then why not spice it up with some curly fries or even the mecca of french fries...the crinkle cut fry! Now that's an argument for a different time and place because it can get real extensive although I'm confident a crinkle cut fry vodka simply has to become great tasting and that's solely off Joey's ideology of Rachel's fucked up english trifle from Friends.
What's not to like? Custard...good. Jam...good. Meat...good.
What's not to like? Vodka...good. Potatoes...good. Curley fries...good. Crinkle cut fries...GOOD. I am officially thinkin' Arby's Vodka.
