The Applebee’s Drink of the Month deals are legendary—like a $1 Bahama Mama that people loved or last month’s Dollar Jolly, a vodka-based cocktail made with Jolly Rancher mix that people did not love. Fortunately, Applebee’s is starting the New Year on the right foot.
The Drink of the Month for January is a $2 Captain and Cola. It looks like a fresh take on the classic Rum and Coke.
What’s in the New Drink?
It’s a simple but very tasty beverage. The Applebee’s Captain and Cola calls for Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and Pepsi. (Captain Morgan is the restaurant chain’s top-selling rum, it turns out.)

For Coca-Cola fans, the thought of making a Rum and Coke-style drink with Pepsi might be hard to believe. But $2 for an alcoholic beverage should be a victory, even for Coke drinkers! See what brand won Taste of Home’s Coke vs. Pepsi taste test.
How Long Is the Captain and Cola $2?
You’ll want to head to the restaurant before January is over. It’s not clear from Applebee’s whether or not the drink will be available after this month. But if it’s still on the menu after January, it will probably be at a higher price point than $2, to make way for the next Drink of the Month deal.
