Not all Texans like drinking alcohol, but there is a large portion of all adults in the Lone Star State that do enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two after a long work week. Obviously, we encourage all adults who choose to have some drinks to do so responsibly. But what is the most popular cocktail beverage in Texas?  

There are so many beverages to choose from especially ones that are created here in Texas. It was almost shocking to me that the most popular alcoholic beverage wasn’t a vodka-based drink. It seems like Tito’s Handmade Vodka would have been an easy pick for Texans as the popular Vodka brand was founded in Austin, Texas in 1997. Another popular pick could have been sometime made with Deep Eddy Vodka. But that isn’t the case, actually according to Ranker the most popular cocktail in Texas doesn’t include Vodka.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
