Mixology Survey Results Are Live!

Posted: Updated:

Raise your glass, because our first-ever mixology survey results are live! And if you do have a glass in your hand, chances are it's full of whiskey. Over 1,000 people chronicled their cocktail drinking habits, and 33% voted whiskey their favorite spirit, followed by 27% of imbibers who said that they prefer vodka. We'll call the popularity of bourbon, scotch and other brown boozes the Mad Men effect. Paging Don Draper!

Cocktail culture is more popular than ever, with people having a tipple or two an average of 3.1 times each week (men are the thirstier of the genders, consuming drinks 3.6 times a week as opposed to 2.7 times for women - why are we not surprised?). Even though surveyors are enthusiastic about knocking back a few, no one is going too crazy - our surveyors report having an average of 1.8 cocktails per outing. Check out some boozy stats in the slide show below, and check out the most annoying cocktail trends here. You can also follow along on social media with the hashtag #drinksweek.
