delish.com – Finally-ditch-the-sweater weather may be weeks away, but clearly, Applebee’s is ready to party like it’s MTV Spring Break 1999. Just as the chain’s $1 Bahama Mama promotion — or DOLLARMAMA, as you may recall — ends, it’s rolling out a whole new discount drink to get you through the doldrums of the season.
This month’s discount drink is a vodka lemonade, and it’ll cost twice as much, because it’s made with premium alcohol — Absolut, to be exact — instead of the well stuff. What’s more, the deal’s available all day, every day, so there’s nothing holding you back from hosting your own boozy brunch on a Tuesday morning. Aside from, you know, a job or family obligations or not wanting to come off like a boozehound. But you get the idea.
If you play your cards right, you can double up on discounts, sipping $2 drinks while snacking on the chain’s famous half-priced appetizers, which are offered after 9 p.m. on weekdays, and after 10 p.m. on weekends. (Some locations also offer this deal late afternoon, during that lull between the lunch and dinner crowds.) You can order dishes like mozzarella sticks, spinach artichoke dip, and grilled chicken wonton tacos.
