It’s March, and you know what that means…

A new bargain cocktail from your friends at Applebee’s.

This month Applebee’s serves up $2 Absolut Vodka Lemonades.

It’s a slight price increase from its $1 Dollarita, DollarMama and Long Island iced tea — or L.I.T. as they say on Snapchat — introduced in previous months.

Scoring This Drink Deal is Absolut-ly Easy

Just belly up to an Applebee’s bar, booth or table near you and ask for the Drink of the Month to start sipping in style. No coupons to clip. No apps to download.

Don’t worry about making it in time for happy hour because bartenders are slingin’ this drink deal from open to close every day through the end of March.

Applebee’s Past Drink-Deal Woes

Applebee’s is well known for making these cheap specialty drinks especially weak with bottom-shelf liquor, sugary mixes and lots of tap water. But it has clearly heard the people’s sugar-rushed cries and has included its first-ever premium liquor in the fourth Neighborhood Drink of the Month promotion.

Still to be determined is the amount of Absolut vodka in each drink, but the 10-ounce frosty mug is guaranteed. Let’s hope this is a departure to a brighter future for this drink-of-the-month promo.
