Arby's announces french fry flavored vodkas
Vodka usually isn’t served with French fries.
Arby’s recently added a new variety of fries to its menu. To celebrate this event, the fast-food chain has announced a new type of booze that has a flavor inspired by the popular side dish.
Crinkle Fry Vodka and Curly Fry Vodka will be available in limited quantities on November 18 and then again on November 22. According to a press release, the bottles will cost $59.99 each and will be available through ArbysVodka.com.

Chief Marketing Officer at Arby’s Patrick Schwing said, "Though we’ve mastered the art of drive-thru fries, we wanted to take it one step further by making them 80-proof. Being a potato-based liquor, this limited edition vodka is infused with Crinkle and Curly Fry flavor so Arby’s fans who are of legal drinking age can responsibly enjoy our menu from bag to bottle."
The beverage is distilled using cayenne, paprika, onion and garlic in order to recreate the flavor profile of Arby’s fries. The Crinkle Fry Vodka is also made with kosher salt and sugar. Not surprisingly, the vodka will also be distilled from potatoes at Tattersall Distilling.
