The first official Mountain Dew cocktail will soon be available at Red Lobster.
The “Dew Garita” will be rolling out to select restaurants throughout September and is expected to be available nationwide by the end of 2020.
In a news release earlier this week, 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.
“The DEW Garita is the first delicious taste of the types of inspired menu items to come,” Nelson Griffin, Red Lobster senior vice president and chief supply chain officer, said in the release.
The new drink will be exclusively served at Red Lobster and a suggested pairing is the seafood restaurant’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
More pairings are planned.
“With both of our brands on deck to wow guests, we can’t wait to dream up more phenomenal flavor pairings together to bring some very special offerings and experiences to the table,” Hugh Roth, PepsiCo Global Foodservice chief customer officer, said in the release.
