Red Lobster Has A New Margarita That’s Made With Mountain Dew

Red Lobster, known for seafood, biscuits and a large drink menu, has just introduced a new addition to their line-up of signature cocktails. The new drink is a twist on the classic margarita. This version uses Mountain Dew as a base. They call it the “Dew-Garita”. Fans of “the Dew” will appreciate that this drink is bright green, just like typical Mountain Dew. The glass comes rimmed with red salt.  It will hit Red Lobster locations starting this month.

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 Nelson Griffin, senior vice president and chief supply chain officer for Red Lobster. “The DEW Garita is the first delicious taste of the types of inspired menu items to come.”  Red Lobster and PepsiCo are reportedly working on future collaborations with the Frito-Lay and Quaker brand of products as well.  “Red Lobster and PepsiCo both understand how much food and beverages enhance memorable moments, from casual gatherings with friends to milestone celebrations,” said Hugh Roth, chief customer officer of PepsiCo Global Foodservice. “With both of our brands on deck to wow guests, we can’t wait to dream up more phenomenal flavour pairings together to bring some very special offerings and experiences to the table.” The DEW Garita, according to the press release, pairs well with Red Lobster’s famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
