The first official Mountain Dew cocktail will soon be available at Red Lobster.
The “Dew Garita” will be rolling out to select restaurants in September and expected to be available nationwide by the end of 2020.
In a news release Tuesday, Red Lobster and PepsiCo said they were kicking off a new relationship with the cocktail and would work “together to leverage iconic PepsiCo brands across the Frito-Lay and Quaker range of products to co-create tasty menu items.”
The cocktail has the look of the soft drink and is Mountain Dew’s “take on a margarita” and includes the citrus-flavored soda, tequila and a “few other special ingredients,” officials shared with USA TODAY.
