The interesting thing about the first list is it's all pretty basic...mojitos, margaritas...not a huge surprise. But, what's a random Blue Moon (which i do like) doing on a list of very basic beers and drinks? Why is that being searched all of the sudden? Perhaps it's seeing some kind of popularity in the US (which I'll be less famliar with than what's popular in Europe) but seems a bit unusual. I also don't really think of it as a typical 'summer inspired cocktail' Also, I have no idea what a skinny girl margarita is, but that must be making the rounds somewhere in the US.

As for the 2nd list, I've been hearing lots more questions and comments lately about beer cocktails, so I've been pretty sure they were going to be on the rise in this area beyond the sort of beer cocktails that are always very popular here in France (basically beers with a dash of syrup)


Skinny Girl Margarita is a local premixed abomination targeted at the lo cal crowd. Popular among young women from what I have seen.

The top three summer inspired drinks clearly show the the craft beer and cocktail revolutions have a long way to go. I just hope those margaritas and Mojitos they are searching for are being made fresh.

Nice to See the Sazerac make number 7 though, and the Manhatten at number three is very happily surprising atleast to me.
