There are some cocktails that come and go, and there are some that stay at the top of the charts for generations at a time. The Mojito, Bloody Mary, and Whiskey Sour probably all sound familiar, because they’ve been trending for so long. Keep reading and see why these cocktails are still so popular right now.
When you’re in the mood for a refreshing rum drink that’s been a go-to cocktail for years, make yourself a Mojito. This Cuban drink includes five specific ingredients and is served on the rocks. First muddle mint sprigs with two teaspoons of sugar and an ounce of lime juice, then add an ounce and a half of white rum and soda water. Top it off with six leaves of mint for garnish and add a straw.
Although it’s not for everyone, the Bloody Mary is another mainstay when it comes to trending cocktails. When you go out to brunch after a long night of drinking, this tends to be a popular option for those who need the hair of the dog. The two most important ingredients in a Bloody Mary are tomato juice and vodka, and this savory combo is not necessarily everyone’s top choice. The drink may also include Worcestershire sauce, tabasco, salt, and pepper. Celery is the usual garnish for a Bloody Mary, but crazier toppings like hot wings and sliders have become more commonplace.
The beauty of a Whiskey Sour is that it can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. All you truly need to make a Whiskey Sour is whiskey, lemon juice, and sugar. Simply shake the ingredients in a shaker with ice, and then strain the cocktail into an old-fashioned glass that also contains ice.
