Applebee's New $1 Drink Special Is the Perfect Excuse for Girls' Night

Starting today, December 1, the chain is offering Long Island Ice Teas for one dollar. No joke!

Whether you're planning a girls' night or catch-up sesh with your BFF, wrangling all the moving parts to make it happen -- coordinating schedules, work, child care plans obviously -- can be stressful and maybe even pricey. That's one major reason that Applebee's new drink special seems like a particularly sweet deal for moms. 

The casual restaurant chain announced on Facebook on Wednesday, November 29 that Long Island Ice Teas -- yes, those super-strong cocktails made with vodka, rum, gin, tequila, triple sec, sweet and sour mix and a splash of cola -- would be just $1 through the month of December. The cocktail's name? The "Dollar L.I.T." 

Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee’s said in a press release that the “fan-favorite” mix is “kind to your pocket book and a great drink to share with old friends and new ones this holiday season.”

Last month, Applebee's fans enjoyed $1 margaritas -- or, should we say, "Dollaritas." Surely, plenty of moms will be thrilled to see the deeply-discounted drink special continue through this cheerful (but let's be real, also stressful!) time of year.
