If you haven't already noticed, the holidays are here! Along with the holidays comes crowds, shopping, and Christmas songs playing to what seems like no end. But this year, Applebee's has given us a gift. Until the end of December, the Applebee's is offering their Long Island Iced Teas for $1. They are calling this offer the Dollar L.I.T.
Enjoy A Drink Special to Help You Get Through the Holidays
This offer, arriving just in time for the holidays, is similar to previous drink specials at Applebee's. In October, the restaurant chain offered dollar margaritas and people were very excited. According to Patrick Kirk, Vice President of Beverage Innovation at Applebee's, " The Dollar L.I.T. is kind to your pocket and a great drink to share with old friends and new ones this holiday season."
The Long Island Iced Tea, a drink made from a mix of triple sec, vodka, rum, tequila, gin, sweet & sour mix with a splash of cola is available all day long, every day during the month of December. In case you were wondering if these deeply-discounted L.I.T.'s are watered down versions of the popular drink, they aren't. Each drink contains 1.5 ounces of hard alcohol.
How Do You Take Advantage of L.I.T. Special?
Enjoying this drink special is really as easy as going to a participating Applebee's and placing an order. Simply ask your server to bring you a $1 Iced Tea. Are there limits to how many you can drink? Not really. Just like at any other bar or restaurant, how many drinks you are served is at the discretion of your server. Regardless of how many drinks you have, it is always encouraged that you drink responsibly. Also, you need to be at least 21 years old and the specials are not available for carryout orders.
When Does The $1 L.I.T. End?
The program's duration varies by state. Also, restaurants have the ability to determine if they plan to offer the special and how long the special will run. Most locations will run the special, but a few, like some New York City locations, will not participate. Contact your local Applebee's to see if they are participating in the program.
Applebee's is hoping to attract a younger demographic by offering these drink specials. The restaurant chain saw a 7.7% decrease in same-store sales in their most recent quarter. Applebee's hopes this most recent special will give the brand a sales boost.
Judging from the success of its past specials, this one is more than likely going to work. This drink special will not only help Applebee's increase the customer-base, you get the benefit of enjoying a drink for very little money. Stop by your nearest Applebee's to enjoy an L.I.T. and one of the restaurant's burgers. Also, don't forget to join Applebee's email list and get a coupon for a free dessert on your birthday.
