    Toddler served margarita in a sippy cup

    ANTIOCH, Calif.—Kim Mayorga was confused when her 2-year-old started making funny faces and pushing away the apple juice he had ordered at Applebee's. The explanation came when she opened the lid of the sippy cup and was hit by the smell of tequila and Triple Sec.
    The restaurant staff accidentally gave Julian Mayorga a margarita Monday. He grew drowsy and started vomiting a few hours later and was rushed to the hospital.

    "I wasn't going to make a big deal about it," the mother told the Contra Costa Times on Thursday, "but then he got sick."

    The apple juice and margarita mix were stored in identical plastic bottles, and the manager mistakenly grabbed the margarita container to pour the boy's drink, said Randy Tei, vice president for Apple Bay East Inc., which owns the franchise restaurant and nine other Applebee's in the San Francisco Bay area.

    The Mayorgas will be reimbursed for their medical bills, and Tei said the franchise group's restaurants will no longer serve apple juice and margaritas in similar containers.

    "We absolutely believe it was an honest mistake," Tei said.

    The serving appeared to have been accidental, Antioch police Lt. Pat Welch said. Mayorga said her son is now doing fine.

    She said the company has been very apologetic and offered free meals, but she added, "If they think I'm going back there, they're ridiculous."



    it great that the kid is ok but this is one funny story

    i wonder if they could lose their liquor license for serving drinks to a minor

    geez i guess applebees is not going to put the apple juice in a different colored bottle now

    You can.

    Here in Sterling, many liquor stores have lost their license or well, not lost, but suspended for a day or few days at a time.

    Some bars have as well.

    It's a kill for their business.

    But I agree, funny story

        i wouldnt think that claiming stupidity would get them away from being in trouble with the LCB. they are pretty strick with the rules
        i wouldnt think that they would lose the license for ever, but jsut until they fix the mixed drinks coming in with labels or put a different system in place.


        im sure next time out mom will BYOA for her son

          I don't think that kid's parents will ever go to Applebee's again, especially if they'll take that kid with them out to dinner.

            I am glad the kid is ok. I've never seen a drunk kid make funny faces.

            I would worry about if he actually liked the drink. Childhood experiences can lead to adult addictions and vices.

                  I wonder when Applebee's started doing pre-mixed margaritas, and when they started keeping them in store and pours!!! Even though this is a different franchise...I call BULL!!!
