Today is World Cocktail Day and Funkin Cocktails has researched each country’s favourite cocktail across the globe!
Using Google search data, they were able to determine which cocktails were the most searched for from 115 different countries – showing us which cocktail is any country’s refreshment of choice.
We can also see the total worldwide search volume for each cocktail, giving us the ultimate cocktail league table, featuring over 80 cocktails.
Using this data, we can see that:
The Margarita is the undisputed cocktail champion of the world: with 30 countries claiming it as their favourite and around 546,280 searches for them worldwide per month – the Marg’s are in charge.
The classics are classic for a reason: The Margarita, Mojito, Pornstar Martini and White Russian made up 80% of the total favourite cocktails for each country.
Popularity isn’t everything: While the Old Fashioned, Bloody Mary, Sex On The Beach & Manhattan cocktails all made the top 10 of the world’s most popular cocktails – no country had them as their outright favourite!
Funkin Cocktails are The award-winning cocktail experts with more than 21 years in the making. Established in 1999 as a cocktail expert for high-end bars, Funkin soon became the #1 cocktail brand in the UK.
Funkin believes that to shake the best cocktail, you have to use the best ingredients. That’s why they use real fruit to create their products, famous amongst the best bartenders all around the world.
It’s fascinating to see the differences across the globe for which cocktails are the favourite around each country.
There definitely seems to be a theme in the most popular cocktails: refreshing with a hint of something tropical, to feel like you’re being whisked away to warmer climates with every sip.
While it had stiff competition, Margarita grabbing the top spot as the world’s favourite cocktail is no surprise to me, after all, it’s even got its own glass!
