It’s the most wonderful time of the year . . . for a drink. Well, at least according to Applebee’s, which is ensuring we are fully liquored up this holiday season by not only offering two brand new — and seriously festive — drinks for the month of December, but also offering them for just $1.
This month’s Dollar Jolly drink mixes vodka and either cherry of green apple Jolly Rancher flavor — for, yup, just $1. The drink is either red or green depending on the flavor you choose, meaning, either way, you’re straight up sipping some Christmas in a glass.
“We created a drink to help spread the cheer as friends and loved ones gather together during the holidays. The Dollar Jolly embodies the holiday spirit: joy, delight and good times,” Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee’s said in a press release. “Oh, and vodka too.”
The drinks are served in a 10-ounce mug and even come with an actual Jolly Rancher on the side. While odds are you’ll be able to find the drink near you, participation does vary by restaurant, so be sure to check your local Applebee’s before heading out to get your jolly on.
While you’re at Applebee’s enjoying your festive drink, if you haven’t quite finished your holiday shopping yet, you can also get a pretty good deal on gift cards. Applebee’s will be handing out free $10 cards for every $50 you purchase from now until Jan. 6.
You’ll also find new entrees included in their two-for-$20 deal, which gives you two entrees and an appetizer. If you go that route and get two drinks, you and a guest can enjoy a meal and the jolly drinks for a total of just $22, which is sure to save you some cash for holiday shopping.
