No matter how sophisticated cocktails get, at the end of the day, most people just want something that's sweet and hides the taste of the booze (Why? I'm not sure. I like alcohol.). A new study figured out the most popular cocktail in every state based on Google searches. And these five drinks won the most states . . .
1. Whiskey Sour. It was the most popular in six states.
2. Long Island Iced Tea, also six states.
3. Moscow Mule, five states.
4. Tequila Sunrise, four states.
5. Mimosa, four states.
Colorado's favorite cocktail is a Paloma. What in the world is a Paloma? Well...it's 2 oz Tequila...1 oz lime juice...1 oz grapefruit juice...0.5 oz agave nectar...sprakling water and a grapefruit wedge. Yeah...no thanks. I'll have a JD and Coke!
