In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Applebee’s Introduces the Strawberry Dollarita

The Cocktail That Launched the Dollar Drink Craze Gets a New Flavor and will Be Featured at Applebee’s Restaurants in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Waco and East Texas all of August.


The dollar drink that was born in Texas is getting a flavor lift for the ENTIRE MONTH OF AUGUST as select Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill +Bar restaurants in the Lone Star State will feature the STRAWBERRY DOLLARITA — 10 oz. strawberry margaritas for a buck.

Apple Texas, the local franchisee that owns and operates 64 Applebee’s restaurants in the state, will feature the cocktail that is made with tequila, strawberry and margarita mix and served on the rocks all day, every day for guests 21+ at its restaurants in Austin, East Texas, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Waco and surrounding areas in August.

The original DOLLARITA  campaign resulted in more margaritas sold in any month in the franchise partner’s history and was adopted system-wide by Applebee’s last October. The Applebee’s brand will feature the STRAWBERRY DOLLARITA at participating Applebee’s during the month-long campaign as well.

“We’ve taken a good idea that has resonated with our neighbors and, with the addition of strawberry, made it even better,” said Chris Dharod, President of SSCP Management, parent company of Apple Texas. . “We’re excited to share the new STRAWBERRY DOLLARITA with our valued guests as we enjoy the final days of summer together.”

Guests with questions are encouraged to call their neighborhood Applebee’s for more information. You can find your closest Applebee’s here.

As always, Applebee’s trains its team members to serve responsibly and its guests to drink responsibly.
