TGI Friday’s Jack Daniels Cocktails
TGI Friday’s are big fans of Jack Daniels. The world’s favorite bourbon features on their drinks menu and their food menu. You can order Buffalo Chicken Wings in Jack Daniels Barbecue Sauce, adding a little punch to the usual combination of sweetness and smokiness. There are plenty of other sauces as well, not to mention straight-up Jack, Jack and Coke and other simple drinks.
But in 2016, TGI Friday’s announced a few secret menu items based around this drink. They were celebrating the would-be birthday of the founder and the launch of a few locations in the United Kingdom. They created half a dozen Jack Daniels cocktails to mark these occasions and you just needed to ask to see the Jack Daniels cocktail menu to try them for yourself.
This menu wasn’t included in all TGI Friday’s locations. However, the drinks consist of a base of Jack Daniels, as well as a few other ingredients that feature prominently on the TGI Friday’s drink’s menu. So, if you ask for it, they will make it for you. There were 6 drinks in total, including the Honey Kist, which is the pick of the lot. This super-sweet cocktail consists of Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey; white chocolate; Baileys; and ice cream. It is topped with sticky popcorn pieces drizzled and Dulce de Leche.
TGI Friday’s Jack Burger
TGI Friday’s have a selection of “Handcrafted Burgers”. These come served with sides and are stacked high, not unlike the burgers you get at Carl’s Jr.The Jack Burger is one of these burgers, albeit one that you can only find on the TGI Friday’s secret menu.
It is a 7 ounce burger that comes wedged between a sweet, lightly toasted brioche bun. The burgers is topped with a chilli, red pepper, green pepper, jalapeño and onion sauce. These are all minced up into a sweet yet spicy relish, and one that tastes strongly of mustard seed and cumin. The burger is topped with sliced tomatoes, and there is a big hunk of melted cheese and a dollop of mayo in there as well.
If you like your buns with bite, and with a little fresh veg, this is probably not the bun for you. It reminded us of a cross between a Sloppy Joe and a traditional burger. But the lack of crispy lettuce, raw onions and other crunchy vegetables may leave some customers disappointed.
The burger is served with crispy fries. These are delicious, but they are served with other burgers on the TGI Friday’s menu. They can also be purchased as a side. The burger is the secret menu item here, and it is different to many of the burgers you can find on the standard TGI Friday’s menu.
We have yet to receive a report of this menu item’s price in the United States. However, we have been informed that it costs around £11.99 in the United Kingdom. So, you can expect to pay anywhere from $12 to $20, depending on the exchange rate and the location.
