Remember when Applebee’s blessed us with $1 margaritas for the entire month of October?

At the time, we didn’t think it could get much better. Just $1 for a delicious, tangy margarita? The only thing better would be drinking one on a beach somewhere lounging in a chair!

Well, they’ve outdone themselves: For the entire month of December, Applebee’s will offer Long Island Iced Teas for just $1.

According to a news release, the drink is made with vodka, rum, gin, tequila, triple sec, sweet & sour mix and a splash of cola! Yum—that’s a lot of flavors!


Of course, Applebee’s had to come up with a unique name for the drink (remember the Dollarita?). This time, they’re calling it the “Dollar L.I.T.”


“The Dollar drink is back at Applebee’s just in time for the holidays, and this time, folks can enjoy a $1 Long Island Iced Tea,” said Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee’s, in the news release. “The Dollar L.I.T. is kind to your pocket book and a great drink to share with old friends and new ones this holiday season.”


In all seriousness, Long Island Iced Teas can be a little dangerous, considering how much booze is in them. So remember that just because they’re $1, you still need to get home safely! Call an Uber or make sure you’ve got a friend who isn’t taking advantage of this awesome deal.
