Applebee’s Has $1 Long Island Iced Teas All December & It’s Going To Make You Immediately Google Where The Nearest Location Is
Applebee's foray into dollar drink menu items has been greatly appreciated by many. Last month it was the sweet and salty dollar Dollarita, and this month, the new Applebee's $1 Long Island Iced Tea is really hitting the menu at the best possible time — Dec. 1 at participating restaurants. Just as the chaos of the holidays is seeping into our lives, the need for a stern drink is certainly appealing. And really, what drink is stronger than a Long Island Iced Tea? I mean, actually, let me know — I'm pretty sure the combination of vodka, tequila, light rum, triple sec, and gin is the most powerful drink at the bar.
Now that I think of it, the restaurant should not only put a sign on their door advertising the drink, but also a sign on their door letting potential diners know that there are people inside who have been indulging in $1 Long Island Iced Teas — you know, just to warn them, because Long Island Iced Teas are no joke. Like, I can't even tell you about the few times that I've ordered that drink because I don't remember them.
In a statement given to Buzzfeed Food, Applebee's shared the not-so-surprising news that the drink is a big favorite for the chain: "The Long Island Iced Tea is one of our top five bestselling cocktails and depending on the time of year — our top selling one." So, it makes sense that the Long Island Iced Tea would be their dollar menu drink of choice — it's L.I.I.T., after all. And after last month's dollar menu margarita, it's clear that they're trying to turn things up a notch for the holidays.
YALL APPLEBEES IS DOING $1 LONG ISLAND ICE TEA!!!! IT'S LIT AF— (@whlmslcalwonder) #
But food for thought, maybe next month they'll consider featuring a dollar-menu mocktail that likely will help us all feel better for actions that may have occurred during this month's $1 Long Island Iced Tea promotion. Just throwing some ideas around? Don't get me wrong — I'm super thankful that we get $1 Long Island Iced Teas all December, because it's the sort of Christmas present I didn't even know I wanted. But maybe after I drink them all month, it'd be good to give my liver a break? IDK, I'm not a doctor.
In a weary celebration of the new dollar drink menu item, here are some of the best hazy L.I.I.T.-induced tweets.
At Yuki, the computer abbreviates "Long Island Iced Tea" to LIT, and honestly? True— (@seashelbydavis) #
How did we not figure out this epic and appropriate abbreviation before! No other drink is more lit than the L.I.I.T.
Your Brain On Long Island Iced Tea
Let me get a Long Island Iced Tea = Let me get a bad life decision followed by other bad life decisions that I'll deny accountability for later.— (@himdownstrz) #
The one drink that can flawlessly create a series of unfortunate events in one night, and then keep you from remembering any of it. A blessing and a curse. Cheers!
L.I.I.T.: 1, Memory: 0
Last time I had Long Island Iced Tea...man I don't even remember that night but I was on my ass💀💀— (@beautyinhell) #
You literally have to be a super human to remember your nights that were infused with a L.I.I.T., that's just a fact.
It's Always The Same
Going to go and sit in the shower and consider why I keep drinking Long Island iced tea when I know exactly how I'll feel the next day— (@_pxxl_) #
Why do we repeat the same mistakes over and over again? Why? Why?
To The Max
That Long Island iced tea sounded good last night, and then I remembered this morning why I try not to drink those anymore #hangovertothemax— (@ohheyjoselin) #
The next morning you always wake up feeling incredibly guilty, remorseful, and mad at yourself for punishing your body. It's a vicious cycle.
This Is... Extremely Wrong
i once ordered a long island iced tea, thinking it was an actual iced tea, and i was dead wrong— (@reallyrosaline) #
A great way to find out that a L.I.I.T. does not actually have iced tea in it is to drink the whole thing and then wonder why the "caffeine" has you feeling so lit. SMH.
I am never, repeat NEVER, drinking Long Island iced tea again. This hangover is of undergrad proportions. Ughhhh.— (@creole26) #
We all say "never again," especially the morning after a belligerent night out. But that's just the hangover talking. So let's be real — see you at the bar at Applebee's on Dec. 1, am I right or am I right?
