If you like beginning the holiday season as soon as Halloween is over, you’ll want to head to Applebee’s, where they’re already serving up some special drinks for just $5!

You’ll find two $5 Sleigh Bell Sips on Applebee’s menu now through the holiday season: Tipsy Reindeer and Strawberry Merry Swirl.

Tipsy Reindeer is for those that want to hold on to summer year-round. It’s a vodka lemonade, but with a cranberry twist. It’s made with Smirnoff vodka, Ocean Spray Cranberry, cherry and lemonade.

If you like tequila, the Strawberry Merry Swirl is a swirled holiday margarita made with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s ultra-premium Teremana Blanco Tequila, melon liqueur, strawberry and lime.

Both drinks are made with premium spirits and served in a signature Mucho glass. They’re also available to-go at participating locations.
