What are the top most popular cocktails? As two certified mixologists and home cocktail experts, we certainly have our opinions. But we wondered: how could we figure out what are the cocktails you‘re most interested in? Home cocktail culture has never been more popular, and is expected to continue to grow.

This list shows the top 50 popular cocktails that are trending on Google this year. These are the drinks you’re most interested in making at home, and some of them surprised us! Some of these cocktails are newer, but many of these drinks have a long history. Are we missing a well-known cocktail? Let us know in the comments.

Wondering the next most popular cocktails in the list? We were going to stop at the top 25, but we got so into it we found the numbers for cocktails 26 through 50! Here are the rankings of most popular cocktails based on Google searches, along with links to the recipe for each drink:

  1. Mint Julep
  2. Lemon Drop Martini

Did we miss anything? Of course there are more great cocktail recipes, but they didn’t hit the top 50 (Gin Fizz in particular surprised us; it happens to be number 51!). Let us know if there are cocktails that surprised you in the rankings. And as always, let us know if you make any of these drinks in the comments below!

Description

Here are the most popular cocktails to make at home! These top drinks are the most searched for on the internet in 2024.


Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Make the espresso or strong coffee. Place it in the freezer until room temperature. 
  2. Add the vodka, coffee liqueur, espresso, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Shake vigorously until cold.
  3. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with coffee beans.

Notes

*Simple syrup rounds out the flavors and makes for a balanced, sweet drink. For a less sweet spin, you can use ¼ oz or make an Espresso Martini without simple syrup entirely.

To convert to tablespoons, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons.

    again, thank you for a great list to choose from, and for this list of cocktails, especially since it’s Friday, and I don’t know where to start, a mojito may just be the cocktail of choice!
