The most popular cocktails add a sense of occasion to any event, whether you’re planning a corporate gathering or a personal celebration. In fact, they’re a no-brainer in terms of deliciousness and presentation, adding flair and finesse.

Leading UK experiences platform Fizzbox need no convincing in their The UK’s Favourite Cocktail – A 2024 Survey Of Our Favourite Tipple article. “We think it’s safe to say that we all love a cocktail in the UK. But here comes the big question; what’s your favourite cocktail?” Pippa in their Marketing team asked. “Of course, we wanted to know the answer to that very question, so with that in mind, we ran a survey in December.”

To mark National Cocktail Day on 24th March, let’s dive into the most popular cocktails shaking things up at events this year.

Enjoy the 5 Most Popular Cocktails in the UK at Your Next Event

1.      Mojito: The Refreshing Classic

There’s nothing like the zesty zing of a Mojito to bring out the vibrancy at your event. It’s a lip-smacking blend of fresh mint, white rum, sugar, lime and cooling soda water, ideal for outdoor summer parties, corporate away days, or poolside incentives.

This universal favourite packs a hefty punch and doesn’t need any fussy serving. A traditional Old Fashioned glass works just fine. Or you might want to be matchy with a green tumbler. On the other hand, go green by name and nature by pairing this minty marvel with a reusable plastic tumbler for alfresco fun.

2.      Pina Colada: A Tropical Escape

Transport your guests to a tropical paradise with a dreamy creamy Pina Colada, irresistibly blending rich coconut cream, white rum, and tangy pineapple. It brings the kitsch appeal in spades when served in a curvaceous Pina Colada glass with a playful umbrella.

The Pina Colada promises a sweet escape with every sip, at themed parties, outdoor drinks receptions, or any event where you want island vibes and sunny smiles.

3.      Long Island Iced Tea: The Ultimate Party Mixer

Look no further than the Long Island Iced Tea to get the party started. A potent mix of vodka, gin, tequila, rum, and triple sec, topped with lime, cola, and plenty of ice, is a true crowd-pleaser.

The LIIT mixes complex flavours and a sizeable kick in a deceptively elegant Sling glass. No wonder it makes the most popular cocktails list for keeping the energy sky high at corporate soirees or birthday bashes alike.

4.       White Russian: Elegantly Smooth

The White Russian is your go-to cocktail for a touch of smoothness with a hint of sheer sass. It’s a simple yet indulgent blend of vodka, cream, and coffee liqueur, elegantly served in an understated Rocks glass or Old Fashioned glass.

This velvety elixir adds a refined edge to corporate events, private dining, or any occasion calling for the finer things in life. Richly palate-pleasing and luxurious, what’s not to love?

This sweet and sour concoction of vodka, cranberry, orange liqueur, and citrus makes a bold statement. It’s ideal for lively summer gatherings, launch parties, or any event where you’re keen to add some extra sparkle. This is why the Cosmopolitan is known as a good time in a Martini glass.
