It’s my type of road test… the world’s most popular cocktails.
And I admit that I have made and slayed most in this latest survey by botanical brewery Fentimans.
During my lazy Saturdays in Ireland which I turned into a Jocktails treat for The Scary One.
Best bar none
The baton has since been passed on to the Son and Heir.
And he went on to sate the thirsts of many a Dub, Belfaster and Liverpudlian.
While The Scary One has also learned well as evidenced from her twist on Sex on the Beach for last night’s House of Gucci film night.
Right, on to the survey and you’d think it would be tastings but that would be too simple.
Fentimans has drawn in every social network gizmo to back up their findings.
They created a global index by analysing 36 different cocktails from around the globe on a number of different metrics.
They looked at the number of hashtags associated with each cocktail on both Instagram and TikTok.
As well as global Google Search Data to discover monthly search volume.
Finally, Fentimans used a Twitter sentiment analysis tool to understand more about the positivity rating of each.
Google Trends has also been used to determine the top ten most popular in every country around the world.
Me? I just drink them.
The top ten
So, here’s the challenge, here’s the top ten alas without my fave Strawberry Daiquiri so get drinkin’…
I’ve a story on each and every one and if you want to throw them all in together you get a Long Island Iced Tea.
And that almost did for The Scary One who on drinking one of mine said she couldn’t see the TV.
Yes, my cocktail memories range from cooling down on the hottest day of the year in Barcelona with Sangria.
Muddling limes during the Brazil World Cup for their favourite Caipirinhas.
Putting on the Spritz
Getting in ahead of the curve with Aperol Spritzs in Venice.
And it’s a drink I’ve stayed with and I highly recommended it for apres ski on the slopes of Val D’Isere.
It is after all one of the world’s most popular cocktails after all.
