Drinking at the drive-in get a new interpretation at Sonic this summer, where the QSR is introducing a new trio of Mocktail Slushes, including Strawberry Daiquiri, Piña Colada and Reaper Spicy Margarita. In fact, they’ve even got a happy hour from 2 to 4 p.m. when they’re all available for half price, a news release said.
Sonic considers the star of this particular alcohol-free show to be the Reaper Spicy Margarita, which it says is infused with “flavor” from one of the world’s hottest chili peppers, the renowned Carolina Reaper, which despite the ice surrounding it the brand promises will still set those who partake on fire.
For the tamer — and maybe saner — the Strawberry Daiquiri combines strawberries and coconut flavor, while the Piña Colada goes full-on tropical with coconut and pineapple flavor — all, of course, slush-ified.
“With Mocktail Slushes, we captured that summertime mocktail state of mind, combining tropical flavors with our icy, cold Slush so you can enjoy vacation vibes from the comfort of your car,” Sonic Vice President of Product Innovation and Development Scott Uehlein, said in the release.
The LTO slushes are available now at the chain’s 3,600 locations, though the brand did not provide an end date for the items.
