What beverage do you typically match your fish meal? A cocktail? Ice-cold soda? Well, you will not need pick between both of these beverage options anymore since Red Lobster and PepsiCo have come together to make the initial official Mountain Dew cocktail. The brands concurrently surprised the net by introducing the DEW Garita in 8a. M. on September 15th, through Twitter. Needless to state, cocktail and soda lovers were abuzz with this information!
Of class, mixing carbonated soda with alcohol is not a totally new idea. However, it is quite uncommon to get a casual restaurant and drink company to partner up so as to make an exclusive beverage offering. And, that Mountain Dew beverage is surely a refreshing alternative that is ideal for the (socially distanced!) brunch dates. In an announcement, Nelson Griffin, Red Lobster Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer, stated:
“Red Lobster is thrilled to work with PepsiCo, not only because it has a great portfolio but specifically because of the food and beverage innovation possibilities. The DEW Garita is the first delicious taste of the types of inspired menu items to come.”
The brands declared the product of the collaboration on Twitter before this September

Get your buzz with this Mountain Dew cocktail
“Red Lobster and PepsiCola both understand how much food and beverages enhance memorable moments, from casual gatherings with friends to milestone celebrations,” Hugh Roth, PepsiCo Global Foodservice Chief Customer Officer, said. “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.”
Aside from divulging the DEW Garita’s chief components, which can be, needless to say, Mountain Dew and tequila, neither manufacturers have gone into further detail concerning the other components contained in the combination. The promotional material to the cocktail comprises the beverage in a glass with a curious reddish rim together with a lime wedge. This special detail piqued the interest of several — was that this rim only red-colored salt or some thing different? Well, a fortunate few have already sipped and solved the puzzle.
The DEW Garita is your pop up manufacturer’s initial official cocktail
According into @dew_or_die, the beverage has a red crystal rim instead of the traditional salt . They also went to add that “the DEW held its own in the battle for the taste”. Sal DiBenedetto a.k.a. @thegrubfather also noticed that the DEW Garita is the ideal companion for its iconic Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Is it just us or did dining Red Lobster a great deal more exciting?
Sadly, it appears that the DEW Garita is on a slow rollout. Some places have yet to start supplying the sweet concoction. Don’t fear if your local Red Lobster is not serving it though! This exclusive cocktail will hit all Red Lobster places nationwide before the conclusion of 2020. Which makes us wonder, how can a carbonated soda cocktail store this season? Guess we are going to have to sip to learn!
