Original “Recipe”: The Chick-fil-A Cocktail

Original “Recipe”: The Chick-fil-A Cocktail

Yes, I’ve been known to make a cocktail on a dare. This one was from a late-night challenge to come up with a cocktail inspired by one of the most hallowed of fast food items in the Drinkhacker household: The Chick-fil-A chicken nugget.

It’s unlikely to make anyone’s regular cocktail hour rotation, but it’s certainly food, ahem, for thought.

The Chick-fil-A Cocktail
2 oz. Wild Turkey 101
1/2 oz. Cointreau
2 dashes peach bitters
one teaspoon Chick-fil-A Polynesian dipping sauce

Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a skewered chicken nugget.

Of course… it’s delicious! Those eyes don’t lie!

Not for consumption on Sundays.
