In a collaboration that puts even the weirdest cafeteria dare to shame, Pepsi and Red Lobster are rolling out a new drink known as the "Dewgarita."
The green, alcoholic concoction is one part Mountain Dew, one part tequila, but mostly, it's a head-scratching viral talker that has piqued the curiosities of millennial social media.
As the seafood chain endures its "most challenging time," due to mandatory shutdowns and limited dine-in services, the company is exploring "strategic options" as it tries to keep its doors open despite sale losses, according to FSR Magazine.
It appears the absurd, $10 Mountain Dew and margarita mixture may be a move to boost foot traffic as restaurants nationwide rely on alcohol sales and the growing popularity of to-go cocktails to supplement their losses.
I ventured to my nearest Red Lobster to see if the Dewgarita is worth the shock-value hype.
