"We created a drink to help spread the cheer as friends and loved ones gather together during the holidays," Patrick Kirk, vice president of beverage innovation at Applebee's, said in a Nov. 30 news release. "The DOLLAR JOLLY embodies the holiday spirit: joy, delight and good times. Oh, and vodka too."
