If you ever wanted to pay an exorbitant price for the type of swill you used to pregame frat parties with, then boy, does Red Lobster have the thing for you.
Today, Red Lobster and PepsiCo announced the “Dewgarita,” which is a margarita made with America’s greenest soda, Mountain Dew. The drink has a “secret recipe,” though we do know it has tequila and Mountain Dew in it (the dust coating the rim of the glass in the promotional photo is sadly not Doritos).
For a nihilistic bunch of Twitter users, the Dewgarita felt like the final straw, the late capitalism cherry on top of a 2020 cake that has given us COVID-19, violent protests against police brutality, Murder Hornets, sky-altering wildfires on the West Coast and a menagerie of other disasters.
The official drink of the dumpster fire that is 2020 has arrived. I can’t even say “dewgarita” with a straight face. 🤢 https://t.co/IJdJ791z50

I have to wonder if this was already planned, or if 2020 just got bored and spawned the DewGarita and its ad campaign out of thin air for the manic fun of it. I mean, the extra touch that it’s only at Red Lobster is just art https://t.co/pOnSnRfOry

Me: Can this hellscape of a year actually get worse?

Some were ready to chug it just to have an emotion again.
Fuck it. Gimme five of these and a biscuit and then shoot me in the face. Give my body to a pervert. https://t.co/PoxLSeZhmu
