World Cocktail Day: 2023’s most popular cocktail is revealed

Updated: Jan 24

As if we need an excuse to have a cocktail, but this Saturday, May 13 we really do have one as it's World Cocktail Day!

From margaritas (both spicy and not), martinis and daiquiris, whatever your drink of choice is, this Saturday you can pour yourself a tipple in celebration.

To help you celebrate the day on trend, we've managed to determine what are the top cocktails of 2023.

UK’s top 5 cocktails

Coming in at number five is the Cuban classic, Mojito. Made from a combination of lime juice, rum, soda water and, of course, fresh mint, this is one of the most popular summer cocktails.

In fourth place, is the Cosmopolitan also known as the Cosmo. This drink reached peak popularity during the ‘Sex And The City’ series as many tried to live their Carrie Bradshaw best life.

Made from a combination of vodka, Cointreau, cranberry juice and fresh lime, this cocktail is both delectably sweet and sour in flavour.

We love, and highly recommend, our Blue Cosmo made with our Premium Blue Raspberry Vodka. Check out the recipe here. If Gin is more your thing, then swap out the vodka for our Signature Gin.

Coming in third is of course the trusty Piña Colada. Made from pineapple juice, rum and coconut, this creamy cocktail is perfect for warm sunny days.

The Espresso Martini is second on the list. It is made using freshly brewed espresso coffee, coffee liqueur, vodka and always three coffee beans to garnish. The three beans represent health, wealth and happiness making for the perfect table toast.

As you know, we like to shake things up a little! So if you don't have vodka to hand, then try this rich, silky cocktail with our Signature Gin or Chocolate & Orange Rum Liqueur instead. This twist will only add more flavour to an already delicious cocktail. Find the full recipe here.

Taking first place as the UK’s most popular cocktail of choice is the Porn Star Martini. This popular cocktail is made with vanilla vodka, Passoã, passionfruit juice and lime juice served with a shot of Prosecco.

Many debate how you are supposed to drink the cocktail. Do you pour the prosecco into the cocktail? Do you shot it then drink the cocktail?

The answer is neither. Tradition dictates you take a bite of the fresh Passion Fruit, sip the cocktail and finish by shotting the Prosecco to cleanse the palate.

Which is your favourite cocktail? We'd love to know.
