Applebee’s Is Serving a Jolly Rancher in Boozy Liquid Form

December’s Dollar Jolly drinks come with a candy on the side, too.

What do you get when you cross hard candy with hard alcohol? Both a booze buzz and a sugar high, probably, but also Applebee’s Dollar Jolly drinks.

The casual dining chain has teamed up with fruity candy maker Jolly Rancher to bring diners – and drinkers – its December Neighborhood Drink of the Month.

Now available for only one dollar apiece at Applebee’s nationwide, the vodka-based, brightly colored Dollar Jolly cocktails come in Cherry or Green Apple flavors -- perhaps because green plus red equals Christmas? Each drink, served in a in 10oz mug, also comes with a Jolly Rancher hard candy on the side.

"We created a drink to help spread the cheer as friends and loved ones gather together during the holidays," Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee's, said in a press release. "The Dollar Jolly embodies the holiday spirit: joy, delight and good times. Oh, and vodka too."

So in case you need to slip away and sip a little alcoholic sweetness in this season of celebration, Applebee’s has got you. A jolly holiday indeed.
