Do you find yourself ordering the same drink at the bar time and time again?
While we all have our favorites, it seems not everyone has the same problem. In fact, every year there are cocktails that enter the drinks scene — and ones that disappear.
The website asked 108 of the best bars in the world — using the results of the World’s 50 Best Bars list — to rank their best-selling cocktails in order to produce the list.
From saying goodbye to the Piña Colada to embracing the Caipirinha, scroll down to see the 25 best-selling cocktails in the world in 2017.
25. Caipirinha. 2016 was marked by the Rio Olympics, which gave the world an excuse to enjoy this Brazilian drink — and moved it up from its previous spot at 47. It’s best enjoyed with lots of cachaça, sugar, and lime, muddled in a strong glass.
24. Tom Collins. This alcoholic lemonade, typically made with gin, lemon juice, sugar, and carbonated water, now has a whole family, including the Pedro Collins (rum), Pepito Collins (tequila), Colonel Collins (bourbon), and Captain Collins (Canadian whisky). However, the most important thing is to garnish it with a good lemon.
