A recent survey by the IWSR showed that the growing interest in whiskey-based cocktails means that drinks made with bourbon and whiskey now make up 23% of the craft bar market in the US. Their continued domination of the market is a sign of the ever-increasing popularity of whiskey based cocktails, both at home and on a night out.

We took to Google Trends to analyse the top 10 whiskey cocktails people searched for over the past 12 months. From the Godfather of cocktails to Old Fashioned tastes, it’s an eclectic mix that shows people aren’t afraid to get out of their drinking comfort zone and try something a little zesty.

This list is based on the average number of searches each drink received during 2016. It is also worth noting that searches for whiskey cocktails in general are higher now than they have been over the past five years.
