After the success of 'Dollaritas,' Applebee's is selling $1 Long Island Iced Teas -- here's how to get one

  • Applebee’s is selling Long Island Iced Teas for $US1 the entire month of December.
  • The “Dollar L.I.T.” contains vodka, rum, gin, tequila, triple sec, and sweet and sour mix.
  • In October, Applebee’s had a “Dollarita” deal, during which it sold margaritas for just $US1 each.

Following the popularity of the “Dollarita,” Applebee’s is now going to sell $US1 Long Island Iced Teas.

The casual dining chain will launch the “Dollar L.I.T.” promotion on December 1. For the entire month of December, customers can purchase a Long Island Iced Tea – made with vodka, rum, gin, tequila, triple sec, and sweet and sour mix – for just $US1.

Applebee’sThe Dollar L.I.T.

The Dollar L.I.T. will be available all day, every day, at all participating locations across the US. Unfortunately, a few locations – including some in New York City – will likely not offer the deal, so if you’re truly committed to your L.I.T., it may be best to call your local Applebee’s beforehand.

While Applebee’s same-stores sales dropped 7.7% in the most recent quarter, the chain’s $US1 margarita deal in October provided a crucial buzzy promotion for the struggling chain.

Applebee’s has doubled down on deals to attract budget shoppers and played up its history as a bar as casual dining sales have slumped. In August, executives announced that the chain plans to close between 105 and 135 locations this year.
