The Best Happy Hour

Sonic Drive-In

Not exactly our first thought for this category, but Wichita has spoken and the vote was hands down for Sonic’s Happy Hour as the best deal in town. There isn’t too much better on a hot Wichita day than a Route 44 cherry lime aid with extra lime. If you want to make it a true “happy hour”, pick up a lime aid and high tail it home to splash in a little gin. At Sonic, even the slushes are half price from 2 pm to 4 pm. Did you know that after 8 pm all shakes are 1/2 off? A late night happy hour win! Plus act like you are cool and order a “secret menu” item like the Sonic Sunrise (cherry lime aid and orange juice), the Purple Sprite (powerade, lemonade, cranberry juice and Sprite) or the extremely racy Dr. Pepper Orgasm (Dr. Pepper, powerade, and lemonade). I actually just ask for the Dr. Pepper O, being somewhat shy and not wanting to raise the eyebrows of my fellow happy hour enjoyers.
