Most Googled Cocktail Recipes in Every State During Quarantine

If you’ve been at home for the last couple of months– and who hasn’t been– you’ve probably started googling all types of recipes and what not. Right? Right. Recently, TheDailyMeal.com released a list of the most googled cocktails during the quarantine.

Personally, I’ve googled French 75 and Paloma so much that I should have it memorized, but not quite. However, The Daily Meal claims that others in Arkansas are googling how to make frozen daiquiris.

People in Colorado and Alabama want Hurricanes. A few states want a kamikaze and of course, there’s the classics– old-fashioneds and whiskey sours.

French 75

Ingredients:
2 ounces London dry gin
¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
¾ ounce simple syrup
2 ounces Champagne
Long spiral lemon twist (for serving)

Directions:

Combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds.

Strain cocktail through a Hawthorne strainer or a slotted spoon into a large flute. Top with Champagne; garnish with lemon twist.

Old-Fashioned

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon raw or granulated sugar
3 dashes bitters
2 ounces rye whiskey
Orange wedge (for serving)
Maraschino cherry (for serving; optional)

Directions:
Stir sugar, bitters, and 2 tsp. warm water in a rocks glass until most of the sugar is dissolved. Add 3 ice cubes and pour rye over. Stir 20 seconds to chill cocktail and dilute whiskey. Garnish with orange wedge and cherry, if using.

Kamikaze

Ingredients:
2 ounces vodka
¾ ounce fresh lime juice
¾ ounce triple sec

Directions:
Combine vodka, lime juice, and triple sec in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds.
