Is there anything more refreshing than an ice-cold raspberry lemonade on a hot summer day? Trick question: It’s even better when you add vodka.
Applebee’s knows that to be true as well and has not only created the ultimate summer drink for the month of June, but is giving it to us for only $1. Their new vodka raspberry lemonade combines Tropicana lemonade, raspberry and lemon juice and, of course, vodka!
Served in a 10-ounce mug, the cocktail is just $1 now through June 30.
“Our guests always enjoy a refreshing vodka and lemonade cocktail, and we’re delighted to add raspberry to the lineup for the first time,” Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee’s, said in a press release. “The $1 Vodka Raspberry Lemonade is sunshine in a glass and light on your wallet – put that extra money toward your summer vacation.”
If you’d rather make vodka raspberry lemonade at home in your own kitchen, this recipe from Cake -n- Knife looks delicious and is so easy. All you need is raspberries, lemon juice, sugar, vodka and water.
The recipe makes a large amount for parties (or a Monday…), but you could easily cut it down to make just one or two drinks. Or, of course, just put the rest in the fridge and enjoy it later!
If you will indeed be enjoying your lemonade at Applebee’s though, you might also want to check out their newest menu item — loaded fajitas.
The loaded fajitas come smothered in queso and sprinkled with crispy Applewood-smoked bacon and your choice of sirloin steak, chicken or shrimp. Served on a sizzling skillet with fajita vegetables, Spanish rice, warm flour tortillas and toppings like cheddar cheeses, guacamole and house-made pico de gallo, they sound like the perfect accompaniment to the vodka lemonade.
Price, participation and availability of the $1 drink of the month may vary by location, so be sure to make sure your local Applebee’s is participating. And remember, just because it only costs $1 doesn’t mean you should overdo it. Please drink responsibly!
