We are rounding it up to the happy hours with a list of the most sold cocktail drinks around the world! If cocktails are your choice of poison or even if they are not, we bet you have wondered at some point, behind all those fancy names which are the ones actually worth trying. Well, this list is a great point to start at!
With pop culture shows like “Mad Men” and “Sex and the City” bringing cocktails back in vogue, it seems there has been a spurt in the sales. And the UK alone has seen a 10% rise. Now, even men seem to be inspired and inclined to try a mix of cocktails. But, while sales figures in the UK show that they still prefer their Mojito over anything else, the world seems to be moving toward the taste of newer mixes, and it is more open to experimentation. The scenario in the spirits industry is also changing by the second as cocktail demands are driving the trends of alcohol sales. For instance, the sales of Kentucky bourbon and Tennessee Whisky experienced a spike of close to 10% in sales last year because consumers are increasingly enjoying the taste of the two together. It is quite likely even the 10 Largest Alcohol Companies in the World have also been affected by the current trends.
Cocktails are fast gaining popularity over regular alcohol and most venues are now serving up the classic drinks along with regular additions to their menus. Our list of the most sold cocktail drinks around the world is based on the Cocktail Trends Report 2015 by the World’s 50 Best Bars that was a survey created by questioning the 50 best bars in the world on what cocktails sells the best at the moment. And, we might say the results are quite tasty!
So, here’s serving you up the list of the cocktails that the world is going crazy about – shaken not stirred!
