Honestly, I’ve never met an Applebee’s $1 cocktail I didn’t like, but their offering for February is particularly special. This month is the home of the holiday of love, after all, so their vodka-spiked strawberry lemonade and its delightful pink shade has come around just at the perfect time.
- It’s all part of the Neighborhood Drink of the Month program. In case you’re not familiar with Applebee’s, they offer a different $1 cocktail every month, each with different themes, flavors, and alcohol. This month’s drink is perfect for Valentine’s Day with its sweet pink color but also harkens to warmer summer days ahead.
- It’s simple but delicious. ”The whole month of February is a great time to head to Applebee’s with your loved ones whether it be with the gals, the boys, or your bae,” Vice President of Beverage Innovation Patrick Kirk said in a statement. “We keep it simple and sweet this month with a spirit our guests love in the $1 Vodka Strawberry Lemonade, and the great news is that there’s an extra day in February to enjoy it.”
- They’re not skimping out, either. This month’s $1 Applebee’s cocktail comes in 10 oz. mugs, so you’re getting a nice amount of beverage to wash down all those mozzarella sticks and fries (that’s my standard order, anyway).
- Not every Applebee’s location is in on the deal. While Applebee’s $1 cocktails are on menus nationwide, there may be a couple of locations here or there that aren’t in on the deal (or simply run out of supplies, as crazy as that sounds). You can check to see if your local Applebee’s is in on the deal by giving them a call if you don’t want to take your chances, but even if you don’t grab one of the limited-edition drinks, there are always some other tasty cocktails on offer.
