Applebee’s Restaurants in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex Bring Back their DOLLARITA – Margaritas for a Buck – for One Day Only: National Margarita Day, Monday, February 22
Applebee’s local franchisee, Apple Texas, is celebrating with the largest margarita in Texas
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas. On National Margarita Day, Monday, February 22nd, Applebee restaurants in the Dallas / Fort Worth * area are celebrating the holiday with the return of the DOLLARITA – a 10-ounce house margarita for just one dollar – and the largest margarita in Texas, just for one day.
Chris Dharod, Senior Executive of SSCP Management, Inc.
Idea by Chris Dharod and an executive at SSCP Management, which owns and operates 57 Applebee restaurants in Texas, the DOLLARITA was founded in 2017 and was so popular that it was offered by Applebee restaurants across the country. It’s rare, but Diana Isaacson, SSCP’s director of marketing, felt National Margarita Day was the perfect time to bring the beloved cocktail back.

“Get ready to put your tequila on … and your lime and your triple second because nobody makes better margaritas than Applebee,” said Isaacson. “The DOLLARITA should have its own national holiday, but we will do our part to make it an unforgettable day. We’ll also be selling our premium margaritas for $ 5, made with Hornitos Reposado in a variety of delicious flavors including strawberry, mango, peach, and watermelon. We invite our neighbors to join us on National Margarita Day! “
Apple Texas is also celebrating this holiday with the debut of the largest mug in Texas, also from the creative spirit of Dharod to make, you guessed it, THE LARGEST MARGARITA IN TEXAS on National Margarita Day. The largest margarita will be six feet tall by four and a half feet wide and contain 65 gallons of margarita!
“THE LARGEST MARGARITA IN TEXAS is a sight to behold and just plain fun, ”Isaacson continued. “Come visit us at our restaurant in Grapevine to see for yourself, grab a selfie and your own dollarita.” The local team of mixologists created the following recipe to perfectly recreate the DOLLARITA on a much larger scale:
- 473 ounce gold tequila – 14 liter bottles or 18.5 750 ml bottles
- 169 oz Triple Sec – 5 liter bottles or 6.5 750 ml bottles
- 2028 ounces proprietary margarita blend
Add water and fill it with ice, making this gigantic mixture about an inch from the top. The result:
- 22 gallons of margarita
- 2816 ounces margarita
Guests must be 21 years or older to enjoy the margaritas on National Margarita Day. As always, Applebee’s is a reminder to drink responsibly.
