If you’re a fan of both a good margarita and a bubbly Mountain Dew, then this item might perk your taste buds.

PepsiCo and Red Lobster are joining forces for a special Mountain Dew margarita.

We can’t make this stuff up, folks. They call it a DEW-Garita.

The DEW-Garita is the first official Mountain Dew cocktail, and Red Lobster claims is “pairs perfectly” with the restaurant’s famed Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

“Red Lobster is thrilled to work with PepsiCo, not only because it has a great portfolio of brands, but specifically because of the food and beverage innovation possibilities,” Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer at Red Lobster Nelson Griffin, said in a press release. “The DEW Garita is the first delicious taste of the types of inspired menu items to come.”

The DEW-Garita is expected to be rolled out to Red Lobster restaurants soon.
