T.G.I.F., right? It's time for the weekend and you'd rather not cook.
Luckily, there is some fast-food -- or as they are sometimes called these days, fast-casual eateries -- news to report that could make your life easier beginning today.
T.G.I. Friday's in Laguna Niguel has a new menu offering nine dishes and four new hand-crafted cocktails.
The new menu items include: Steakhouse Bleu Cheese Burger with applewood-smoked bacon, caramelized onions, maison butter and creamy bleu cheese atop a grilled Black Angus burger and the crispy BBQ Chicken Flatbread appetizer combining a smoky chipotle barbecue sauce with juicy pulled chicken. New scratch-made cocktails combine fresh flavors, like clover honey, lemon and basil, with premium liquors to create the perfect pairing with the rich flavors of the new dishes, according to a news release.
Also available Skillet Garlic Shrimp served over rice in a creamy Alfredo sauce, and a Whiskey Cake made with Jack Daniel's butterscotch whiskey sauce. Friday's Jack Daniel's menu has added Jack Daniel's Sirloin and Half Rack of Ribs.
Hand-crafted cocktails: the Bee Sting, Maker's Mark Kentucky Bourbon mixed with a sweet touch of honey and a splash of fresh squeezed lemon juice; the Grey Goose Cooler, Grey Goose Vodka with basil-infused layers of smooth peach puree and St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur; the Platinum Mojito made with Atlantico Platino Rum; and the BFM, also known as The Best Friday's Margarita, combining Patrón Silver Tequila, Grand Marnier and our house-made fresh agave sour mix. In addition, there are two non-alcohol beverages with the Strawberry Lemonade Crush and Cherry Limeade Crush, according to the news release.
