Applebee’s Drink Of The Month For January Is A $2 Captain And Cola

People who love rum won’t want to miss this Applebee’s deal. The chain’s Drink of the Month for January is a $2 Captain and Cola!

The Applebee’s Drink of the Month deals are legendary—like a $1 Bahama Mama that people loved or last month’s Dollar Jolly, a vodka-based cocktail made with Jolly Rancher mix that people did not love. Fortunately, Applebee’s is starting the New Year on the right foot.

The Drink of the Month for January is a $2 Captain and Cola. It looks like a fresh take on the classic Rum and Coke.

What’s in the New Drink?

It’s a simple but very tasty beverage. The Applebee’s Captain and Cola calls for Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and Pepsi. (Captain Morgan is the restaurant chain’s top-selling rum, it turns out.)

How Long Is the Captain and Cola $2?

You’ll want to head to the restaurant before January is over. It’s not clear from Applebee’s whether or not the drink will be available after this month. But if it’s still on the menu after January, it will probably be at a higher price point than $2, to make way for the next Drink of the Month deal.

Prefer to make your tropical drinks at home? You can’t go wrong with recipes for rum cocktails!
