Jungle Bird

Tiki is still on the crest of its comeback. It doesn’t get more classic than the Jungle Bird, which was reportedly invented in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, circa 1978. High-end cocktail bars often serve the drink in a bird cage for the ultimate presentation. At-home bartenders can stick with a rocks glass and a pineapple wedge garnish.

Long Island Iced Tea

New to the list in 2020, the Long Island Iced Tea combines four spirits: light rum, vodka, tequila, and gin. It’s the ultimate cocktail for indecisive imbibers. Love it or hate it, the sickly sweet cocktail is back.

Gin Gin Mule

You might do a double-take when you see the Gin Gin Mule on the list of the world’s most popular cocktails. The Gin Gin Mule (a.k.a. the Ginger Rogers) is a cross between a Moscow Mule and a Mojito, with gin as the star of the show.

White Lady

This cocktail originating in the 1920s was reimagined with a dash of egg whites by Peter Dorelli, former manager of The American Bar in London. Its base is gin, mixed with fresh lemon juice and either Cointreau or Combier.

El Diablo

An underrated tequila Highball and another example of tiki’s increasing popularity. The El Diablo combines reposado with ginger beer, lime juice, and crème de cassis.


The days of the Cosmo as the bartender’s piñata are over. You may even see crafted spins on this drink. If you need reminding, it’s vodka, triple sec, cranberry, and lime. Despite dropping 14 spots since 2017, the Cosmo has remained relevant, meaning it might be time to give the pink drink a second chance.
