Applebee’s Is Serving NEW Cocktails for Only $5—and One of Them Has a Gummy Shark

You can welcome spring with Applebee's drink specials!

Even if you usually head to Applebee’s for the riblets, beer cheese dip or a quesadilla burger, you should know that some of the greatest deals at this neighborhood grill are the drink specials.

In fact, the chain is famous for the fabulous $5 drinks they roll out each month. Now, Applebee’s is welcoming the warmer weather with plenty of tequila in the aptly-named Springtime Sips!

What Are the New $5 Applebee’s Drinks?

First up, we’ve got the Tipsy Shark, which the chain describes as a Pacific-inspired margarita made with 1800 Reposado Tequila, blue curacao, pineapple juice and margarita mix. It even has a gummy shark swimming through it!

The other new drink on the menu is the Strawberry Daq-A-Rita, a drink that combines two of our favorites—a daiquiri and a margarita. This gorgeous drink is also made with 1800 Reposado Tequila plus Bacardi, strawberry and margarita mix. Learn more about aged reposado tequila.

Both drinks come in a giant Mucho glass, which means you get plenty of bang for your buck. Each Applebee’s drink is just $5!

How Long Will They Be Available?

Like most of the Applebee’s drink specials, the Springtime Sips are a limited time offer. But both the Tipsy Shark and the Strawberry Daq-A-Rita are available at Applebee’s right now, so you can drop in for a drink, or even get ’em to-go at select locations. Honestly, we can’t think of a better combination than tequila, gummy candy and homemade Honey BBQ Wings.
