If you’re a Facebook fan of Allrecipes, did you see Friday’s post about the Top 10 Classic Cocktails?

When I took a quick look in the afternoon, I noticed there were dozens of comments on the Facebook page from people posting their favorite cocktails. I did a quick, informal survey. Out of about 60 total comments, the big winners were margaritas (9), Bloody Maries (8), and Gin & Tonics (6), followed by martinis (5).

It made me wonder what the top 10 cocktails were back here on the Allrecipes site. So I fiddled around a bit and...I see a trend. It's margaritas by a landslide! No surprise, I guess. Of Allrecipes’ top 10 most-reviewed cocktails, 4 of the top 5 are margaritas! The only non-marg? A bikini martini.

And the #1 reviewed cocktail recipe? The Beer Margs, weighing in with 544 reviews.
 
1. Beer Margaritas (544 reviews)

2. Margaritas  (237 reviews)

3. Bikini Martini (133 reviews)

4. Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margarita (129 reviews)

5. Margaritas on the Rocks (112 reviews)

The Red Rooster is number 6. Actually, it’s tied with the Pina Colada III, each with 48 reviews.

Wow, sorry about the funky formatting and the red rooster line repeating three times! I'll repost shortly. Hope the links work at least. Gotta go for now!

About Me
My wife and I and our two devilish kittens live on Capitol Hill in Seattle. A few years ago, I got a masters in gastronomy. I'm a food/wine writer. I’m also blogging about cocktails.
My favorite things to cook
We cook fairly simple dishes using fresh local ingredients that we pick up at the Seattle farmers market. My favorite thing is making a nice slow-braised or long-roasted something on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I like cooking with wine (in the dish and in the glass...and in the cook).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom never liked to cook, but she did well despite herself. Her mother, my omi, was from Munich and made delicious rouladen, sauerbraten and other traditional German and American dishes. Always bins and bins of home-baked cookies at Christmas. Wonderful rye bread. And beer. Opa would say, "Brotzeit ist die beste zeit."
My cooking triumphs
We’ve made the signature timpano dish from The Big Night a couple times. And for Thanksgiving 2007, we made Turducken. My wife and I are always volunteering to cook the big holiday meals with the family. We mix a signature cocktail, and get down to it.
My cooking tragedies
I made Thanksgiving Dinner for myself once when I was snowed-in in Denver. I nearly burned down the neighborhood.
