A great drink needs gravy. At least that’s what KFC is pitching.

The fast-food restaurant released three cocktail recipes featuring its savory gravy, otherwise known as “stock-tails” with booze. It's "gravy so good you can drink it," KFC says.

The three recipes are: Gravy Mary, Southern Twist and Fingerlickin’ Sour. 

Apparently, stock-tails have become a trend, according to Liquor.com. They can likely be found in restaurant bars with kitchens where stock can easily be made.

If these recipes cooked up by KFC intrigue you, they provided instructions for all three drinks.
