It's a brand new month which means a brand new $1 drink at Applebee's! I absolutely love this promotion they do. They've had $1 margaritas, long island teas, strawberry margaritas and my favorite, the $1 zombie drink they had for the month of October. This months drink, I expected would be an homage to the month of love- but I was wrong.

Applebee's introduced their "Neighborhood drink of the month" and it instead pays homage to The Big Easy's favorite holiday- Mardi Gras! Enter the Hurricane! The drink-made with rum, passion fruit, orange, black cherry, and lime- will be served in a 10-ounce mug and it will only be $1!

Considering that Mardi Gras this year doesn't happen until March (March 5 BTW), I'm still excited for this drink. Many people complain about Applebee's $1 drinks but I love them. Although February is a short month, many will be pleased to know that Applebee's will keep the Hurricane on the menu through actual Mardi Gras!
