Contributed by


Most of us can’t even imagine life without Google anymore. We rely on the search engine to get everything from news to trends to the lastest weird boozy stocking stuffers. From cocktail-infused doughnuts to bartending robots, it’s clear 2017 was another big year for alcohol. But which cocktails proved the most popular? Google can answer that question.

By studying an aggregation of trillions of this year’s search terms, Google created the Year in Search 2017. According to the data, classic cocktails reigned supreme on the search engine over the past year. The Margarita topped the results, with the mojito coming in second. While these warm-weather staples took the top spots, the cold weather hot toddy came in third—a favorite around the holidays and during cold and flu season. See the full list below:

  1. Margarita
  2. Mojito
  3. Hot Toddy
  4. Sangria
  5. Whiskey Sour
