Applebee’s is our go-to for booze on a budget (remember the Strawberry Dollarita and those National Piña Colada Day cocktails?). October’s Drink of the Month has the same treat of a deal with a sinister spooky twist. The Applebee’s $1 Vampire is a tiki-inspired cocktail worth sinking your teeth (or a straw) into.
The drink is made with rum and mixed with strawberry, passion fruit, dragon fruit and pineapple juice. All those fruity add-ins, along with a set of vampire fangs and a cherry, give this drink an eerie purple hue.
Unlike real bloodsuckers, these bevs won’t be around forever. The deal is running through the end of October. Don’t forget to go back on Halloween with the kids in their costumes to score up to two free kids meals with the purchase of an adult entree.
Other spooky cocktails include the $4 Franken-Slush (no alcohol, passionfruit, orange, black cherry, apple, lime, gummy body part); the $6 Tipsy Zombie (Bacardi, passion fruit, pineapple, cherry, lime, Midori float, gummy brain), and the $8 Dracula’s Juice (Bacardi Limon, DeKuyper Razzmatazz, blackberry, frozen lemonade, blackberries).
