If you haven’t made your Valentine’s Day plans yet, you may want to consider heading to Applebee’s; they’re offering a brand new $1 drink that is perfect for the month of all things love.

The $1 Vodka Strawberry Lemonade is a mix of three simple ingredients — vodka, strawberry and lemonade (obviously). It is served in a 10-ounce mug and yes, it’s pink!

The best part? The Vodka Strawberry Lemonade is $1 all month long, so if you can’t actually celebrate on Valentine’s Day, you have 28 other days to do so (thanks, Leap Day!). That means it’s also completely acceptable for you to head out and treat yourself anytime or have some cocktails with your friends for Galentine’s Day.

“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,” Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee’s said in a press release. “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.”

Price, participation and availability of the Neighborhood Drink of the Month may vary by location, so make sure your local Applebee’s is serving it before heading out for date night.

As always, the drinks may cost just $1 but they still have a regular amount of alcohol, so please drink responsibly.

The $1 Vodka Strawberry Lemonade is available any time Applebee’s is open, but if you wait until happy hour (which varies, depending on your location), you can also get half-priced appetizers and other discounted drinks.

If you’ll be having more than just drinks and apps at Applebee’s, they have some new menu items you might want to check out as well, including new limited-time Irresist-A-Bowls.

The five new bowls are served over rice, potatoes or pasta and have toppings like chicken or shrimp. They start at $7.99. Options include the Crispy Orange Chicken Bowl, the Homestyle Chicken Bowl, the Chicken Bacon Mac & Cheese Bowl, the Southwest Lime-Grilled Chicken Bowl and the Tex-Mex Lime-Grilled Shrimp Bowl.
