Applebee’s $2 Cocktails

If you’re looking for a cheap drink during Happy Hour this year, then feel free to stop by your local Applebee’s.

Applebee’s Grill & Bar is incorporating a “Neighborhood Drink of the Month” for the new year and is starting it off with something special: $2 Cocktails!

The billion dollar corporation is looking forward to introducing cocktails for $2 but with an apparent twist.

Originally known as $2 Captain and Colas, the drink combo would include the Captain Morgan Spiced Rum.

Vice President of Beverage Innovation at Applebee’s Patrick Kirk states:

 “Rum and cola is a classic combination, but we wanted to make it special when we picked it for our next Neighborhood Drink of the Month, so we crafted it with our number one selling rum, Captain Morgan…When you get your hands on a mug of Captain and Cola for only $2, it’s going to feel way better than returning those holiday gifts. You’re welcome.”

Despite the Rum and “Coke” being served for cheap in a 10-ounce mug, the spiced rum is being served with Pepsi, and not with Coca-Cola.
