Applebee's, including the location here in Grand Junction, is celebrating the season with $1 Long Island Iced Teas.

When I hear the news I had to call the local store to make sure this deal was legit, and it is! First, find a designated driver. Second, grab your friends and head to Applebee's on Horizon Drive for a great deal on one of their signature drinks.

"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," Applebee's vice president of beverage innovation Patrick Kirk said. "The Dollar L.I.T. is kind to your pocketbook and a great drink to share with old friends and new ones this holiday season." I couldn't agree more.

The idea isn't anything new for Applebee's. Back in October, they hooked up their patrons with $1 margaritas. Now in December, it's Long Island Iced Teas. This tasty beverage filled with vodka, rum, gin, tequila, triple sec, sweet and sour mix, and cola is available all-day at all participating Applebee's restaurants the one here in Grand Junction being one! Happy Holidays indeed!
