Understandably, we were all excited when Applebee’s announced that they would be selling $1 margaritas for the whole of October. Christened the Dollarita, Americans were certain that October would be a good month. And, honestly, who wouldn’t be? That’s $1 for an alcoholic beverage, that’s only 65 Rupees!
While I was writing the article, I had a distinct feeling that it was too good to be true. Unfortunately, thanks to a leaked video by an employee (possibly an ex-employee), we can now determine, without a shadow of a doubt that it most certainly was too good to be true.
You can check out the video of how a dollarita is made, below.

Obviously, Twitter was enraged, as it turns out the dollarita isn’t much more than some sort of margarita mix, really cheap tequila, and a suspicious amount of water. However, as many Twitter users pointed out, you’re paying $1 for a drink, so don’t tell me you were expecting top-shelf tequila and mixologist.

I guess the moral of the story is that you get what you pay for!
