Mountain Dew is one of the most popular soft drinks on the market. It’s also memorable thanks to the bright green color it has. Mountain Dew has previously been available in other colors and flavors, like blue and red, but you really can’t beat the green color or the original taste.
Popular seafood chain Red Lobster is capitalizing on the popularity of Mountain Dew, and transformed the cool soda into a whole new drink. The company just introduced the Dew Garita, which is a margarita that is made completely with Mountain Dew.
This is also the first time that a seafood chain like Red Lobster and a soft drink company like PepsiCo have joined together and collaborated on a drink together. This Dew Garita is also the first official Mountain Dew cocktail ever made, so there’s that. Also, Mountain Dew lovers will definitely not want to miss this.
In a press release, Nelson Griffin, Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer at Red Lobster, said, “Red Lobster is thrilled to work with PepsiCo, not only because it has a great portfolio of brands, but specifically because of the food and beverage innovation possibilities, the DEW Garita is the first delicious taste of the types of inspired menu items to come.”
Between the alcohol in the margarita and the sugar from the Mountain Dew, this drink is a sugar and caffeine explosion for your body. The Mountain Dew Garita also has the bright green color, is rimmed with red salt and finished with a lime wedge.
Anyone who wants to try this new Dew Garita simply needs to head down to their local Red Lobster chain and order the drink, which is expected to be on menus at all participating locations in the month of September. There is no word on whether this drink is a limited edition item or if it is real to stay.
