When you think of the perfect cocktail to sip in the cold month of January, thoughts of Irish coffee or a hot toddy may come to mind.

Applebee’s is hoping you’ll think twice on your choice, though, because they are offering a brand new $1 drink of the month that has the perfect name for the chilly weather: the Vodka Rum Frostbite.

Served on the rocks in a 10-ounce mug, the $1 Frostbite is a tropical blue-and-white swirled cocktail made with a blend of rum, vodka, blue curaçao, coconut and pineapple.


While it is served with ice and likely won’t warm you up in the traditional sense, a taste of the tropics may just make you forget the snowy, cold weather right outside.

“Yes, it’s a tropical rum drink at heart, but we added vodka for good measure,” Patrick Kirk, a vice president at Applebee’s, said in a press release. “In the peak of chilly weather, it’s the perfect warm-up when you’re ready to tell winter to frost itself.”

While you can get the drink through Jan. 31, availability may vary by location, so be sure to check your local Applebee’s before heading out. And remember, this drink is only $1, but it has plenty of alcohol, so please drink responsibly!

If you’re looking for another deal to go with your $1 Vodka Rum Frostbite, you can wait until happy hour (which varies, depending upon your location), when you can also get half-priced appetizers and other discounted drinks so you can try something else, too.

Applebee’s is also kicking off the new year with the addition of all you can eat boneless wings, riblets or shrimp starting at $12.99 for a limited time. You can even mix and match your order, so you can try all three. The deal on these dishes includes fries and coleslaw on the side.


Will you be heading to Applebee’s this January to try the new $1 drink of the month?
