Mountain Dew Cocktails Are Coming to Red Lobster

Grab a Mountain Dew Dewgarita at Red Lobster.

Red Lobster is launching a special cocktail with Mountain Dew. New at the seafood restaurant is the Red Lobster DewGarita, a bright green alcoholic beverage.

As restaurant patrons slowly trickle back into dining rooms, Red Lobster is looking for something to entice them with. The DewGarita looks like its best bet, as it’s pairing it off with iconic Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

As far as what’s inside the drink, Red Lobster is keeping quiet about that. It uses a “top-secret recipe” that likely includes tequila and citrus flavoring with Mountain Dew. This isn’t far off from many other restaurant cocktails. For instance, Dave and Buster’s includes gummy worms in some of their drinks. That way, customers get a sugar high when drinking.

Mountain Dew covers the citrus flavor here, with plenty of caffeine to boot. It’s unclear what else the drink will include. The image of the drink looks like it has spicy or pink salt, but it’s not easy to tell.

Looking forward to grabbing a DewGarita? It will be available at select Red Lobster restaurants beginning this month. It will be in locations nationwide by the end of 2020.

Red Lobster and PepsiCo will continue to partner for additional products

The DewGarita isn’t the only part of the PepsiCo partnership with Red Lobster. Th press release for the product mentions “iconic PepsiCo brands” in the Frito-Lay and Quaker product lines. This doesn’t give us much indication of what to expect. Further, Red Lobster isn’t saying what kind of food items it will be creating. For instance, will there be new desserts or new drinks?

“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,” said Red Lobster’s Nelson Griffin. “The DewGarita is the first delicious taste of the types of inspired menu items to come.”

This creation could mean more unexpected food items from Red Lobster. For now, those brave enough to test it out will have to report back with their taste findings.
