Applebees will be offering $1 Long Island iced teas to costumers. Months after offering the Dollarita, the restaurant chain announced that they will be offering Long Island Iced Teas at a discounted price in December and people on social media could not contain their excitement over the news.
Applebee’s is calling the drink, the “Dollar L.I.T.,” which contains vodka, rum, gin, tequila, triple sec, and sweet and sour mix. There are no strings attached to the $1 offer — Long Island iced teas will be available in all participating Applebee’s stores, all day every day starting Dec. 1.
Keep in mind the promotion is only at participating restaurants. If you want to see if your local Applebee’s is in on it, contact the restaurant or check online at applebees.com/dollarteas. It is always best to contact your local Applebee’s about their participation.
Here are some reactions on social media to Applebees selling $1 Long Island iced teas.

“The dollar drink is back at Applebee’s just in time for the holidays, and this time, folks can enjoy a $1 Long Island Iced Tea,” Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee’s, said in a statement. “The Dollar L.I.T. is kind to your pocket book and a great drink to share with old friends and new ones this holiday season.”
Alongside the announcement, Applebee’s reminded people to “please drink responsibly”. Applebee’s new strategy comes after executives recently decided to shutter more than 100 locations amid a 6.2 percent decline in same-store sales. Those are numbers that would drive anyone to drink.
