WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 29: Cocktails crafted by David Strauss as Eric Podwall Hosts An Exclusive Cocktail Experience The Evening Before White House Correspondents' Dinner at Sheppard on April 29, 2016 in Washington, DC.

Summer is nearing its end, and the only rational way to grapple with this unavoidable reality is by drinking tropical tiki cocktails while we still can—and a lot of them at that. So it’s pretty convenient Applebee’s announced its August Neighborhood Drink of the Monthas $1 Mai Tais. Looks like we’re getting rum-drunk through Labor Day, y’all.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the program, let me fill you in. On the first of the month, the chain welcomes a new (super cheap!) cocktail to its drink lineup. We’ve had the Malibu Dollarmama, that Vodka Raspberry Lemonade, and we can’t forget the OG icon, Dollarita.

But this Mai Tai is sounding like the ultimate champ. It’s got rum, pineapple, passion fruit, orange, black cherry, AND lime all swirled together in one 10-ounce mug.
