Everyone’s favorite rum-forward cocktail, Fridays Long Island Tea will be available To-Go so guests can celebrate in true Fridays fashion – at home, with friends, family, or even on video chats. It’s a fun new addition to the brand that helped put the tasty libation on the map and has been serving the drink since 1965.

TGI Fridays was the first major chain to serve and sell a Long Island Iced Tea, so National Rum Day holds a special place in our hearts and history,” said Sara Bittorf, Chief Experience Officer at TGI Fridays. “We know guests are all experiencing restaurants differently during these unprecedented times, which is why our teams are happy to re-create ‘That Fridays Feeling,’ any time, even if it’s at a distance.”

Hand-crafted to order by TGI Fridays bartenders, the Fridays Long Island Tea features Cruzan Aged Light Rum, Smirnoff Vodka, New Amsterdam Gin, triple sec, and Coke.  Fridays also offers additional ways to dial up the National Rum Day celebration with rum-based drinks such as the Barbados Rum Punch, which features Mount Gay Eclipse Rum, mango, passion fruit, strawberry, Sprite, and Hella Aromatic Bitters. Both rum drinks are available in a 16 oz. cup for $5, or guests can enjoy the traditional Long Island Tea in a 64 oz. carton for $45. Other classic Fridays cocktails are available To-Go as well. Prices and availability may vary by location.

Since cocktail-to-go orders are only available alongside food orders, the Long Island Tea is a perfect pairing to any Fridays burger, including the all-new Guinness Pub Burger or Loaded Cheese Fry Burger. The Guinness Pub Burger features tender, juicy beef infused with actual Guinness Draught Stout and served with a Loaded Potato Skin skewer on top. The Loaded Cheese Fry Burger boasts two things in one. It’s an app, it’s a burger, it’s both! The burger is loaded with bacon-cheese fries, poblano queso, and a skewered loaded potato skin. These meals may be rounded out with a sweet treat from the Fridays dessert menu, featuring Chocolate Bundt Cakes, the Cinnabon Caramel Pecan Cheesecake, the Brownie Obsession, and more.
