These ‘stocktails’ offer gravy fans a boozy alternative for enjoying their favourite condiment.
The fast-food chain has named their meaty new concoctions Gravy Mary, Southern Twist and Fingerlickin’ Sour. According to KFC, it’s “gravy so good you can drink it.”
“Our fans repeatedly express their love for our gravy, which always sparks ideas within the team. We know our gravy is good enough to drink – so with 'stock-tails' being a real hit at the moment, what better ingredient to take them to the next level?” Marion Racine, marketing manager at KFC UK & Ireland, told The Independent.
KFC called on an expert mixologist, known only as Patrick, to create the unique cocktails. His task was to discover key flavours and ingredients that complemented the distinctive taste of KFC gravy.
“For example, the Kentucky bourbon in The Southern Twist brings mellow, sweet spice notes to stand up against the savoury gravy,” he explained.
“The herbal note of parsley on the rim brightens the sip with the brown sugar softening the kick of bourbon and uniting the flavours.”
