Without professional bartending skills, most of us have to consult the all-knowing Google for cocktail-making tips. All those queries then get compiled and stored until the end of the year when the online behemoth bestows upon us its year end trends.

After sifting through our trillions of search terms this year, Google has brought us the most popular alcohol related search terms in the Year in Search 2017. According to the data, cocktails tips reigned supreme with the Margarita and mojito topping the list. The cold weather classic, hot toddy, came in third. So, thinking back… how many of these have you searched for in the past 12 months?

Here’s the full top 10 list:

  1. Margarita
  2. Mojito
  3. Hot Toddy
  4. Sangria
  5. Whiskey Sour
  6. Mai Tai
  7. Bloody Mary
  8. Cosmopolitan
  9. Old Fashioned
  10. Irish Car Bomb

If you’re wondering how this list compares to the list from last year: Sangria was the most-Googled cocktail, with Strawberry Daiquiri, Sex on the Beach, Mojito and Mimosa also giving classic cocktails a strong showing in 2016. Favorites from last year that did not make the list in 2017 include the Martini, Rusty Nail and White Russian.
