While some cocktail items on this menu are wholly unique, one addition will have Friday fans raving: the Pumpkin Spiced Espresso-tini. A version of this pumpkin-spiced take on an espresso martini has been gracing Friday’s seasonal menu for a while, and some Facebook users have called for it to make a comeback. While 2021’s Pumpkin Spice Latte Martini used Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and Kahlua, this 2023 version will blend Absolut Vodka, Frangelico, pumpkin, and Owen’s Nitro Espresso.
While Friday’s welcomes old favorites in new forms, part of the revamp of Friday’s marketing has also been a focus on mocktails. This is evident in the three non-alcoholic options gracing the 2023 seasonal menu. These include Chilled Cocoa, Spiced Cider, and a Nice Blood Orange Margarita made with Spiritless Jalisco 55.
Alongside the cocktail menu, Friday’s festive menu also has new and old holiday food combos. The Crispy Whiskey Combo featuring ribs and fried shrimp is making a return, and there’s also a steak-and-shrimp combo featuring a Hennessy-orange glaze and a Korean Red Chile Combo of chicken and crispy shrimp.
If the cocktail menu lives up to the hype, it’ll be the perfect way to say cheers to TGI’s larger bar dreams and the holiday season.
