While the holidays have earned a reputation for being pretty tough on your wallet, Applebee's has a simple solution that'll help you wind down from the stress of the season while also saving you a load of cash. The restaurant just announced its new Neighborhood Drink of the Month for December, and let's just say that it tastes exactly like candy — except it's a LOT boozier.
The Dollar Jolly, as it's called, is a vodka-based cocktail made to resemble the taste of a Jolly Rancher. The cocktail, which will be available for $1 at Applebee's locations nationwide throughout the month, comes in two classic Jolly Rancher flavors: Cherry and Green Apple, obviously chosen to represent the colors of Christmas. We got a bottle of each flavor personally delivered to the POPSUGAR office and taste tested both of them ourselves. Most editors agreed that the drinks tasted like candy, while some claimed that both flavors tasted like melted popsicles. Either way, we'll let you be the judge of that as you ball out on the discount drinks at a location near you.
