New research reveals world’s most popular cocktails

From Margaritas to Pornstar Martinis, cocktails are loved all around the globe. But what are the world’s favourite cocktails?

Botanical brewery, Fentimans, decided to look into this further and have created a global index by analysing the top 36 cocktails from around the globe on a number of different metrics.

Fentimans 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 cocktail.

A unique score was attributed to each metric which allowed Fentimans to determine an overall score which in turn revealed which is the most popular cocktail in the world.
