Georgia-based fast food chain Arby’s announced it plans to unroll two limited-edition vodkas that will pair well with their french fries.
The Curly Fry Vodka “preserves the distinguished and authentic flavor profile” of its namesake snack, and is distilled with cayenne, paprika, onion and garlic, the company said in a press release Tuesday.
Arby’s Crinkle Fry Vodka is more “subtle” and is made with real kosher salt and sugar, according to the missive.
“Though we’ve mastered the art of drive-thru fries, we wanted to take it one step further by making them 80-proof,” said Patrick Schwing, chief marketing officer of Arby’s.
The fast food booze will be available online in 12 states on Nov. 18 for $60 a bottle, the release said.
Online reaction to the alcohol announcement was mixed, with many commenting they’d prefer the chain brought back a discontinued menu item.
Where are the potato cakes?! Bring back as a Christmas present!,” one person wrote on Instagram.
“HELL to the yeah!! Can we catch a buzz on lunchbreak?,” an enthusiastic imbiber wrote.
Some Arby’s followers were downright dispirited about the potato-flavored booze.
“I hate you arby,” one dissenter wrote.
