While margaritas are a staple of my diet all year round, they’re best enjoyed on a hot summer day. That means, for me at least, there is literally no better way to bring summer to a close than with a frosty marg (or three).

Applebee’s thinks so too and to honor the end of the season, the restaurant chain will be serving up strawberry margaritas for the entire month of August for just $1. Yup — you can get this marvelous drink for cheaper than a soda!

The strawberry margarita, or “Dollarita” as Applebee’s calls it, is made with tequila, strawberry and margarita mix and served in a 10-ounce mug. Tequila and strawberries for $1, people.

If anyone is looking for me before Aug. 31, you know where to find me.

Applebee’s suggests reaching out to your local location to make sure it’s offering the discounted drinks before heading out.

It’s also a good idea to take a look at what other specials might be happening so you can pair your cheap drinks with cheap food, like their happy hour specials — or all-you-can-eat chicken tenders and riblets!

While you can score the $1 strawberry margarita all day, if you hold off until happy hour (which varies, depending on your location), you can also get half-priced appetizers and other discounted drinks — you know, in case you want to change it up a bit.

You can also hit up the two-for-$20 menu, where you’ll get an appetizer to share with someone else and two entrees. Your options vary depending on your local Applebee’s selection, but you could choose from menu items like boneless wings, spinach and artichoke dip, a chicken tenders basket, an oriental chicken salad and fiesta lime chicken — yum!

Combine it with two strawberry margaritas and you’ve each got yourself a meal for $11!

Not bad for a night out with some drinks.

Plus, if you sign up for Applebee’s email list, you’ll get other special deals, including a free gift on your birthday.

Cheap drinks aside, however, no matter how many margaritas (or other drinks) you can afford at the discounted price, remember to always drink responsibly and get a ride home if you couldn’t resist ordering more than you normally would.
