TYLER, Texas — Texans love their tequila!
Upgraded Points, a website that helps people upgrade their overall travel experiences, used data from Google Trends over the last year to see what cocktail recipes people were looking up to make at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the data, Texans were making Margaritas the most.
How to make a Margarita from Delish:
- Place salt on small shallow plate. Rim two glasses with lime wedge, then dip in salt to coat rim.
- Divide 4 oz. of tequila, 2 oz. of triple sec, and 1.5 oz. of lime juice between two glasses and stir to combine. Top with ice, garnish with lime, and serve.
The Mimosa was the most-searched recipe with six states (Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina and Tennessee). The popular brunch beverage is a combination of champagne and orange juice.
Piña Colada, Wine Cooler, White Russian, Mojito and Margarita were also popular searches.
The website also looked at the most popular cocktails during warm and cold weather. The Painkiller was the most popular summer option, which is a mixture of pineapple juice, dark rum, orange juice and cream of coconut with nutmeg served on top. The Mimosa led the most states in the winter months.
Also of note, the Margarita was Texas' most-searched cocktail recipe in the warm and cold weather months.
