World's Most Popular Cocktails


Thursday, May 13th is World Cocktail Day, so I decided to look up the most popular cocktails for a little inspiration. Now, I usually reach for wine, and my husband likes a basic rum and coke, so I wasn't expecting anything on this list to be too complicated. I was wrong. It seems the fancier the cocktail, the more popular! In fact, as a frequent drinker and former bartender, I was surprised at a couple of beverages on the list I have only vaguely heard of before. That would be the Negroni, and the Aperol Spritz, both of which land in the top ten. Others on the list are a little more common to me, but still not usually ones I'm mixing at home. More of a treat yourself when you go out type of beverage. I will say, when I'm not drinking wine, I'll typically go for Number 8, the dirty martini! What do you think? Is your favorite cocktail on the list? Check out the whole list below!

  1. Bourbon Old Fashioned
  2. Negroni
  3. Manhattan
  4. Long Island Iced Tea
  5. White Russian
  6. Margarita
  7. Bloody Mary
  8. Dirty Martini
  9. Painkiller
  10. Aperol Spritz
