Friday-Worthy Cocktails


Ahh, Friday. The day that turns into the evening that’s made for celebrating. On Friday, you get to wind down from a hectic week and kick your weekend off right. That kind of night calls for a special kind of cocktail. So we’ve compiled a list of drinks that are worthy of Friday.

Anything Made With An Energy Drink


Make sure you have enough energy for a long evening of fun. Next time you need a little boost, try a drink with some energy in it – like Fridays’ Diddy Up, made with Cîroc vodka, ruby red grapefruit, Red Bull®, and fresh-squeezed lime.

Anything Served Neat


Sometimes a Friday calls for something so simple, so clean, so…strong. So order your next premium scotch, bourbon, or tequila neat – and be sure to savor the pure flavor of the spirit by sipping it leisurely.

Anything Muddled


A drink that requires tools and a little elbow grease to make is worth the wait. Muddling makes any drink fresher and tastier, and the technique is used in more than the mojito. Handcrafted cocktails use a number of fresh ingredients: herbs, ginger, oranges, and cucumbers, to name a few.

Anything Handcrafted


The care with which bartenders crafted drinks in the 1930s, when bartending was a skill more than a job that got you through college, is back in a big way. Today they’re called mixologists, and if you want a perfect end-of-the-week-cap, find one this Friday and taste what a cocktail should taste like.

Anything Sparkling


Why save the bubbly for New Year’s Eve? Make any Friday night an occasion with a drink made with Champagne, Prosecco, or sparkling wine. Try a French 75, Death in the Afternoon, Kir Royale, or classic Champagne cocktail and toast to the new weekend.

Anything Shaken Tableside


You know a cocktail is made with care when it’s made right before your eyes. So get treated like a VIP and have your drink shaken tableside. Try out the experience with Fridays’ line of shaker cocktails, like the Double Berry Mojito Shaker.

Anything Spiked


Want to kick your Friday up a notch? It’s easy with a drink that’s spiked – which means it’s fine on its own but better with alcohol. An example: Fridays Spiked Lemonade, made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, lemon and lime juice, agave nectar, and Fever-Tree Ginger Beer.

Anything With Candy


Marshmallows, whipped cream, gummy bears, lollipops, and even peanut butter cups have been spotted in creative sweet cocktails. Let yourself indulge in a delicious candy-and-alcohol concoction before heading to the gym on Saturday. Try the Fridays Pink Punk Cosmo with a secret ingredient: cotton candy.

Anything Fresh


Fresh fruit, herbs, and juice mixers give a cocktail a splash of flavor that just can’t be matched. Give your weekend the fresh start it deserves with a drink made with real live ingredients. Try the Fridays Peach Honey Smash – made with Jack Daniel’s® Whiskey, Jack Daniel’s® Tennessee Honey, lemon juice, lime juice, pure cane sugar, fresh mint, and peaches.

Friday-Worthy Cocktails


This Friday, drink like you mean it with a handcrafted cocktail. It just so happens that you can find one at your local Fridays. Just ask your bartender, and we’re sure they’ll be happy to suggest one.
