Amaretto Sour, Bramble and Co: The hottest cocktails in the world – Goose liquor

Sure, an Aperol Spritz always goes to the start. And with a gin and tonic you do not go wrong anyway. But if you do not want to be embarrassed in trendy bars, you better go for another drink. But which are currently announced? Every year, the cocktail encyclopaedia Difford's Guide publishes the world's 100 best drinks. To map the ranking as accurately as possible, the creators include a number of values ​​- including the retrieval numbers in its own database, statistics from search engines and the cocktail cards of various bars from Europe, North America and Asia. Here are the top 10.

1. Porn Star Martini

Sex sells, that also applies to the cocktail menu. For the fourth time in a row, this drink lands at the top of the winner's podium. The Porn Star Martini should taste especially women, because it consists of passion fruit, liqueur (Passoa), vanilla vodka (Difford's Absolutely recommends), a few splashes of lime juice, vanilla syrup and a dash of champagne. (to the recipe)

2. Margaritas and Tommy's Margarita

The Margarita is a classic of the bar landscape and is washed up by the tequila boom in the US. The Tommy's variant is reduced to the essentials and consists of patron tequila, agave syrup and freshly squeezed lime juice. (to the recipe)

Gin is no longer very popular with hipsters, but the juniper distillate is still prominently featured on the cocktail cards. The Bramble, which by the way is one of the favorite drinks of the author, has been a big leader for some years now.
