From boneless wings to their “Meat Mountain” sandwich, Arby’s is never one to shy away from adding new additions to their fast food restaurant. But while new food items are to be expected, their next venture may come as a surprise: Crinkle Fry & Curly Fry Vodka. Yes, you read that right.
The Georgie-based fast-food chain recently announced their plans to roll out the limited-edition vodkas, claiming that they pair perfectly with the flavor profiles of their french fries.

According to the press release held on Tuesday, the company said that the Curly Fry Vodka “preserves the distinguished and authentic flavor profile” of its popular side item, and is distilled with cayenne, paprika, onion, and garlic”.
“Though we’ve mastered the art of drive-thru fries, we wanted to take it one step further – by making them 80-proof,” Patrick Schwing, Arby’s CMO, said in the announcement. “Being a potato-based liquor, this limited-edition vodka is infused with crinkle and curly fry flavor so Arby’s fans can enjoy our menu from bag to bottle. And we’ve worked to Chef Justin Sutherland to create Arby’s menu-inspired cocktails that pair perfectly with the new vodka flavor profiles.”
Arby’s new limited-edition vodkas go on sale on ArbysVodka.com Nov. 18 at noon ET, followed by a second drop Nov. 22. Unfortunately, the unique drinks won’t be available to everyone, as they can only be purchased in California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon, West Virginia, Wyoming, and the District of Columbia.
Each bottle of Arby’s vodka is priced at $59.99 with shipping including, but a small number of bundles will be available during each drop for $119.98.
“This was really an opportunity for us to reach people out there, specifically, potentially kids that either like multiple fry options or the straight-style french fry,” said Neville Craw, Arby’s vice president of culinary innovation and brand executive chef, in a statement in April.
