Top 10 gay favourite drinks

9th April, 2013 by Andy Young

2 – Manhattan

ManhattanAccording to Queerty, the Manhattan and other classic cocktails such as Sazeracs, Old Fashioneds and Brown Derbys are currently the most popular drinks in the gay community. The website wrote that “where the Cosmo promised a night out on the town with the girls, today’s popular drinks evoke dim-lounges filled with well-dressed men eying each other in the night.”

It goes on to say that it could just be that because the cocktails taste good they are simply being rediscovered by a new generation.

Although the website does question that if people are ordering a wide range of cocktails based on personal tastes, are the days of the “gay solidarity cocktail” coming to an end?

    Egalite is good not just a statement. Now that it is in Seattle people are ordering it by the case for equality weddings. And we are getting requests for straight birthdays, surprise parties, even to toast the “equality” of becoming an American Homeowner for a French couple moving to Seattle. It is beginning to enter the wider consciousness.

  2. French Eddy says:

    I think you forgot one major drink in this survey… Champagne is one of the most popular drink amongst the gay population.
