The Applebee's Absolut Rainbow Punch is the restaurant chain's official Drink of the Month for March. The tasty punch is available for $2 a glass and is served with colorful rainbow roll candy. In addition to its affordable price tag and tasty flavor profile, this craft cocktail is also Instagram friendly thanks to its blue-green look and candy garnish.
Made with a blend of vodka, green apple, ginger, and lemon flavors, the Applebee's Absolut Rainbow Punch is a tasty drink inspired by Spring. "We created a crisp, refreshing cocktail to help us forget about the rough winter we all went through. We made a vibrant green punch, packed it with flavor, and topped it with a rainbow," said Patrick Kirk, Vice President of beverage innovation at Applebee’s about the new product which makes an artisan recipe accessible to a mass audience.
