It’s finally here! It’s officially Halloween month, and if you’re looking for a way to celebrate, Applebee’s has something you’ll want to sink your teeth into this October.

In honor of the spookiest time of the year, this month’s new $1 Neighborhood Drink of the Month is called “Vampire.” Now through Halloween on Oct. 31, you can get the drink served in a 10-ounce mug for just $1 — and I have to say, it sounds bloody delicious!


The Vampire cocktail is purple and made with a mix of rum, strawberry, dragon fruit, passion fruit, a dash of pineapple and a cherry on top. Plus, it comes with complimentary vampire fangs just in case you’re searching for a last-minute costume!

The new undead libation is available only at participating locations, so be sure to check your local Applebee’s just in case they’re not serving it up. And just because it’s only $1 doesn’t mean you should overdo it, so be sure to drink responsibly.

While you can order the drink all day, if you wait until happy hour (which varies, depending upon your location), you can also get half-priced appetizers and other discounted drinks in case you want to try something different after taking a bite of the Vampire cocktail.

You’ll also notice some new food items on Applebee’s menu, including their new pasta and grill combos, which start at $9.99 for a limited time. You can select a choice of one grilled entrée, like a grilled chicken breast, and one pasta, like their new smoky mozzarella ravioli. Other choices include steak, blackened Cajun salmon, crispy shrimp and grilled shrimp skewers, fettuccine alfredo with broccoli and stuffed rigatoni with tomato meat sauce.

Each pasta and grill combo comes with a side of steamed broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes, topped off with crispy onions and a breadstick.


Will you be heading to Applebee’s this October to celebrate Halloween with their new Vampire cocktail?
