Casual dining restaurant chain Smokey Bones has added a selection of fun and colorful candy-garnished cocktails to its menu for a limited time.
Described as “big, bright, and bold,” these deliciously sweet drinks are made with nostalgic candies that take guests on a journey back in time. Available from February through May 23rd, these candy-inspired cocktails are as follows:
Blue Lagoon ($14.99; pint glass refills available for $9.99)
A delicious, drinkable rendition of a fishbowl, this concoction is made with New Amsterdam Pineapple Vodka, DeKuyper Blue Curacao, RumHaven Coconut Rum, Monin margarita mix, and club soda, served in a keepsake fishbowl with Swedish Fish “swimming” around inside and Nerds candy serving as the gravel.
Pink Strawberry Swizzle ($9.99)
Full of fresh strawberry flavor with just a little bit of fizz, this beverage is made with Pink Whitney Vodka, RumHaven Coconut Rum, Strawberry Real Puree, Fresh Lemon Juice, and Club Soda, and garnished with pink Starburst candy.
Honey Bear ($9.99)
Made with New Amsterdam Vodka, RumHaven Coconut Rum, Honey, Fresh Lemon Juice, and Pineapple Juice, this lightly sweet and lemon-flavored refresher is garnished with gummy bears.
“Our new, limited-time cocktails delight the senses, inspire a bit of wonder, and taste delicious,” said CEO James O’Reilly in a press release. “They were masterfully created to harken back to a simpler time as well as bring some playfulness to the menu. We’ve had a lot of cold weather lately and the events of the past two years have been a bit stressful for many people, so it’s nice to bring a little fun to our guests’ cocktail experience and help them beat the winter blues.”
Aside from its candy-garnished cocktails, Smokey Bones is also offering the perfect meal and cocktail pairing for couples this Valentine’s Day. Guests who are planning to celebrate the romantic occasion at Smokey Bones can start their dinner date with the Honey Bear cocktail or a glass of Josh Cabernet Sauvignon, and then enjoy the chain’s USDA Prime Bone-In NY Strip served with a loaded baked potato and fresh steamed broccoli. They can cap the meal with a piece of chocolate-covered strawberry cheesecake, served with fresh strawberries and covered in dark chocolate with whipped cream.
Smokey Bones has also extended its $10 burger + beer special through February. Every Monday-Thursday, guests can get a cheeseburger, fries, and any draft beer on the menu for only $10. The offer, however, is only available for dine-in customers.
