It's hot in Western Colorado. The heat, combined with the smoke, warrants an adult beverage. A Western Colorado chain restaurant has a drink special for August which might just hit the spot.

Have you ever tried a strawberry margarita? Have you ever tried one for the price of $1? Neither have I. Now is your chance.

I've never been one for mixed drinks, but this sounds interesting. A margarita, but with strawberries.

The Dollarita is Applebee's Grill + Bar's "Neighborhood Drink of the Month" for August. These aren't limited to the Grand Junction Applebee's on Horizon Drive. These are available at all Colorado Applebee's locations for the entire month of August 2018.

Why do I make such a big deal about these drink specials? Simple. I'm cheap. I rarely drink, and when I do, forking over big bucks is simply out of the question. The price of $1 is pretty hard to beat.

What do you think? Sounds pretty good, doesn't it. I never did get around to checking out last month's drink special, the Grey Goose and cranberry.

Here's your chance to enjoy a social gathering accompanied by an adult beverage at a very affordable price. Keep 'em coming, Applebee's. These monthly drinks specials are awesome.
