Although many states love their mojitos and mai tais, Long Island iced teas and whiskey sours ranked the most popular cocktails overall. States like Connecticut, Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania came up with Long Island iced teas as their No. 1 search term, with Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming showing some major love on Google for whiskey sours. Tasty ginger-flavored Moscow mules followed close behind at No. 2 for the most popular overall.

The South is big on mint juleps, as the minty beverage swiped the No. 1 spot in both Kentucky and Alabama. Things do get a little blended towards the Gulf of Mexico — in Louisiana the favorite is daiquiris.
