Massachusetts: Here Is The Most Popular Cocktail In The State
Summer is officially over but that does not mean you can’t sip summer-inspired drinks. In fact, Real Simple recently published a feature that detailed the most popular cocktail in every state, and in Massachusetts, there are even a few small businesses who have created popular versions of this drink.
Real Simple analyzed Google search data to compile the most sought-after cocktail in each state. Sixteen different drinks were named among the favorites. “Americans love a wide variety of cocktails, including classics like margaritas and martinis, as well as more niche choices such as a tequila sunrise or a White Russian,” Real Simple said.
In Massachusetts, the most popular cocktail seems to be the choice of many New Englanders. Actually, Rhode Island and Vermont are the only New England states that did not agree with Massachusetts choice.
So, what are we serving tonight?
“Served on the rocks or frozen, many will agree that there’s nothing better than a well-made margarita,” Real Simple states. Though there are some fundamental essentials to stirring this popular cocktail, there is also a wide-range of creative alternatives.
Of course, a Margarita can be ordered frozen, on the rocks, with salt or without, and now, in cans. Joining Massachusetts residents in their love of this cheerful drink was Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Indiana, Kansas, Tennessee, and Missouri. It is interesting to point out that each of these eight states does not experience warm weather year-around. Margaritas are often associated with sunshine and seaside parties. However, as earlier stated, there are even two Margarita producers in Massachusetts that now distribute their products to various regions across the country.
Rustic Spirts is made in Weymouth, MA. Their recipe allows their margarita to just be poured over ice as is. Next, Levitate Brand’s Rexicana, based out Marshfield, MA, serves and distributes the most popular cocktail in Massachusetts as a canned Margarita, which they call a “Surf Marg.”
