October is upon us, which means it’s time to put out those pumpkins, stock up on candy, and add your favorite horror flicks to the Netflix list. Or, you could head to your local Applebee’s, and try their latest month-long drink special, the Halloween-themed Dollar Zombie.
Available at participating restaurants throughout October, the Dollar Zombie is a neon blue cocktail, garnished with a sour gummy brain. According to Applebee’s, the “scary-delicious” drink is a mix of rum, pineapple, passion fruit, cherry, and lime.
The casual dining chain has a reputation for offering month-long drinks deals, but this is the first time it has crowd-sourced its Neighborhood Drink of the Month. Restaurant guests provided input on “everything from the drink’s color to the flavors and garnish,” Applebee’s says.
“Halloween is a favorite holiday around here, and we’re excited to offer guests the opportunity to celebrate all month long with our new DOLLAR ZOMBIE,” said Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee’s, in a press release. “The only thing to fear this Halloween is missing out on this awesome drink.”
