Sip into Summer with Fleming's New 5-6-7 Bar Menu and "Skinnier Cocktails"

Early summer evenings are perfect for sharing a drink with friends. It’s not too cool and not too hot... and thanks to Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, it’s not too expensive.  The nightly bar menu, “5 for $6 ’til 7,” offers a terrific selection of appetizers, premium cocktails and distinctive wines by the glass for just $6 each. They’re available at the bar every night from open to close*.

To sweeten the deal, Fleming’s has updated the 5-6-7 menu for summer with a new 99-calorie cocktail and a pair of flavorful new wines. For beer enthusiasts, Amstel Light is now available at a very special price — two bottles for $6*. (And just 99 calories per bottle!) So why work late when you can celebrate early at Fleming’s?

* Prices in effect from open to close in Illinois. Selling two or more drinks for the price of one is prohibited in Illinois, so the beer selection will be offered at $3 each.

New Sexy Sailor 99-calorie "Skinnier Cocktail"

Starting July 1, Fleming’s is offering the second guilt-free cocktail in a series of three 99-calorie “Skinnier Cocktails”.

Fleming’s new Sexy Sailor is a refreshing 99-calorie cocktail that has all the best elements of an Arnold Palmer—the refreshing quality of iced tea with a hint of sweetness and that great citrus taste of fresh lemon.

Maeve Pesquera, Fleming’s new Director of Wine, started her creation with a recent discovery, Sailor Jerry Rum. With this delicious rum as her base, she added a classic black pekoe iced tea, a bit of Monin sugar-free syrup, fresh lemon juice and a touch of soda. The Sexy Sailor is skinny cocktail heaven on a hot summer night—and it’s under 100 calories!
