Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Applebee’s is continuing its $5 sips promotion by offering up two brand-new generously sized drinks inspired by the season of romance.
The new $5 Smoocho Mucho Sips are made with premium-brand spirits and served in a signature Mucho glass, with one for vodka fans and one for those who prefer rum.
The Tipsy Cupid cocktail is a vodka lemonade made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka and shaken with strawberry and lemonade, while the Date Night Daiquiri is a frozen, swirled Strawberry Mango Daiquiri made with Bacardi Superior rum.
You obviously must be 21 or older to order the drinks and keep in mind that even though they’re just $5, they pack quite a punch because of the liquors involved and the sheer size of each.
If tequila is what really speaks to your heart, Chili’s offers a special new $5 margarita every month. While the chain hasn’t announced February’s drink yet, you still have plenty of time to get the January margarita, a Tequila Trifecta ‘Rita that features three premium tequilas: 1800 Reposado, El Jimador Silver and Jose Cuervo Especial Gold.
If you’d rather enjoy a cozy night at home for Valentine’s Day — and who could blame you this year — you can order the Smoocho Mucho Sips to go at participating Applebee’s locations or you may want to consider making some extra special drinks yourself.
