Revelers are getting ready to ring in 2023, and one cocktail is on the minds of many.
The Mazel Tov cocktail is the most searched-for alcoholic holiday drink in the US ahead of New Year’s Eve, according to data Google shared with McClatchy News.
Drinks often combine gin, sparkling wine, and other ingredients. One recipe published in The Washington Post is similar to sangria, calling for replacing the wine with grape juice and adding apple and plum brandy.
The Mazel Tov cocktail has jumped to the top of the rankings after Google announced it surveyed searches for holiday-themed drinks in the United States for one day, ending Thursday, December 29th. Other cocktails that have yielded results are:
- new year punch
- Santa’s sleigh (amaretto, brandy, eggnog, ice cream, spices)
- Mistletoe Kiss (Cranberry, Lemon Juice, Rosemary, Soda, Vodka)
- Holly Jolly Christmas (Elderflower Liquor, Ginger Beer, Orange, Vodka)
People were also interested in holiday drinks before Christmas. On Dec. 22, Hot His Toddy, a honey, lemon juice, and whiskey concoction, led the search in the United States, followed by searches for:
- grinch cocktail
- hot wine
- hot butter rum
Festive drinks aren’t the only thing people are thinking about before toasting to the New Year. Outside of holiday-themed cocktail searches, Cosmopolitan ranked his #1 in the nation, according to Google, ranked by:
- paper airplane
- French 75
- bee knee
