The holidays are upon us, and that means shopping, budgets, crowds and an endless stream of Wilson Phillips’ “Hey, Santa!” at retail store radios.

Seriously, how did they keep getting resurrected every year?

It can all lead to a little bit of stress and the desire to decompress. But who has extra money for a cocktail? You do. That is, if you head to Applebee’s for its $1 Long Island iced teas.

How to Get $1 Long Island Iced Teas at Applebee’s in December

We told you about Applebee’s “Dollarita in October. The promotion was successful enough that the restaurant chain decided to try a new spin for December with $1 Long Island iced teas.

If you’re not familiar, a Long Island iced tea is a cocktail made up of vodka, gin, tequila, rum, triple sec, sweet-and-sour mix and a splash of cola. That’s a lot of bang for your buck.

The $1 Long Islands will be available throughout December at all participating Applebee’s locations.

All you need to do is head to your closest Applebee’s and order one. No catch, no buy one, get one. Just ask your server to bring you a $1 Long Island iced tea and to turn off the Wilson Phillips.

Don’t forget to sign up for Applebee’s email list and get a coupon for a free treat on your birthday. Cocktails for $1 and free dessert? You get me, Applebee’s. You really do.
