Spirited Cuisine at Applebee’s ($50 GC Giveaway!)

This is a sponsored post. As with all the products I blog about, I use them personally and opinions are my own, I was not influenced in any way by the compensation I received.


Cooking with alcohol intimidates one in four Americans, according to a new survey by Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar®, America’s favorite neighborhood grill and bar.

In fact, if it came down to it, men would be more comfortable cutting down their own Christmas trees and women would rather risk making a basket-weave pie crust from scratch before adding spirited flair to their at-home creations. It’s why Applebee’s restaurants are bringing back the popular Spirited Cuisine menu, a collection of dishes infused with the complex flavors of wine, bourbon, beer and now tequila.

About Spirited Cuisine:

Juicy chicken breast and plump shrimp are perfectly seasoned, then topped with tequila avocado sauce and chopped cilantro. Served on a bed of Mexican-style rice and sautéed peppers & onions for a truly sensational blend of flavors.

This pretzel dough was created to be light and fluffy inside and crispy outside. Sesame seeds, coarse salt and crushed red pepper are sprinkled on top to create a unique experience bite after bite. Dip into our savory white cheddar cheese sauce blended with craft beer or our Dijon honey mustard.

My Thoughts:

With three young children it’s always hard to find a place that we can go out to eat at and isn’t fast food. That’s one reason I love Applebee’s. The customer service is always great and they are great with families that have young children. One great example is our waitress noticed our young kids and offered to change one of their T.V’s to a channel that had cartoons on it. Let me tell you that was a life (well patience) savor! I am always messing things up when it comes to cooking, so I was more than excited to get a chance to try some of Applebee’s Spirited Cuisine. I tried both their Chicken and Shrimp Tequila Tango and Brew Pub Pretzels and Beer Cheese Dip. I LOVED them both. I got to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am not a big fan of liquor. You couldn’t taste it in both of them. If I had to pick which one was my favorite I would say the Brew Pub Pretzels and Beer Cheese dip. Mainly because I love cheese! The tango sauce on the chicken and shrimp was really sweet and yummy. My daughter was eating all my leftover sauce. Over all I was really pleased with Applebee’s Spirited Cuisine. It was very yummy, not to  costly, and my family got to enjoy a nice dinner.
