It's that jolly time of year. Getting a very interesting adult beverage at a great price makes it even jollier. Check out the December $1 drink special at these Western Colorado restaurants.

Have you ever heard of a Dollar Jolly? Neither have I. What exactly is it, and where can you find it for $1?

The December specialty drink at Applebee's restaurants across Colorado is the Dollar Jolly. Check out the lengthy list of ingredients:

  • vodka
  • cherry or green apple Jolly Rancher flavor

That's it. Word on the street is this drink is nothing short of magnificent. November was a bit of a flop with a beer special. Along comes December and the Dollar Jolly, and people are digging it.

Personally, I'm not one for mixed drinks. This, however, sounds interesting. Apparently, people make this drink at home all the time. Here's how.

Whereas Applebee's is concerned, it seems they have a Jolly Rancher mix they use. No, actually Jolly Rancher candies are harmed in the making of this beverage. How much do you get? This holiday treat is served in a 10-ounce glass.

I called the Grand Junction Applebee's to confirm they are in fact offering this special. They most definitely are.

This really does sound interesting. The cost of $1 is pretty hard to beat. I have to wonder if you could make it at home that inexpensively.

Enjoy December's #NeighborhoodDrink while you can. December is a busy month, and it disappears quickly. If you're like me and haven't tried this drink before, this may be your only chance.
