Applebee's offers $1 Long Island Iced Teas through year's end

Applebee's offers $1 Long Island Iced Teas through year's end

As in: "Here's a mug of liquor, with just a little bit of carbonated sugar to make it easier to ingest".

Applebee's offered a similar promotion with $1 margaritas - the "Dollarita" - in October. And for good reason - you can't get a deal like that anywhere. Schroedinger's news, if you will. Applebee's has just announced that for the month of December, they'll be offering $1 Long Island iced teas, or, as they are so aptly calling them, LITs.

"Exact spirit brands may vary, but they are all prepared with the same amount of 75-proof alcohol".

"The Long Island Iced Tea is one of our top five bestselling cocktails and depending on the time of year - our top selling one", an Applebee's spokesperson told BuzzFeed Food. The drinks will be available everyday, all-day in participating restaurants across the country during the month of December.

Sure, a Long Island Iced Tea may be a cocktail better suited to summer than to the wintry holiday season, but Scrooge wouldn't turn up his nose at a mix of four liquors and one liqueur for a buck. The deal is only at participating restaurants, though.

"As always, Applebee's reminds you to please drink responsibly", the release said.
