We may be a country divided, but there is finally something we can all support: Margaritas. For the second year in a row, the greatest tequila tipple of all time has been named America’s favorite cocktail.
Nielsen CGA’s “On Premise User Survey” found that 56 percent of females and 44 percent of males named the Margarita as their favorite cocktail. Additionally, the base spirit of choice for 38 percent of drinkers is tequila.
The Manhattan was the second-favorite drink for male drinkers at 24 percent, while the Daiquiri was next in line for 41 percent of female drinkers. As for favorite spirits, flavored vodka just barely trailed tequila with 34 percent of the vote, while regular vodka and light rum tied for America’s third-favorite booze.
