Top 15 CLASSIC COCKTAIL For traditionalists who like to keep things simple, these tried-and-true recipes will guarantee your drink is made perfectly.
Thousands of cocktails have been created since the first drink was mixed, but only a few have stood up to the test of time. From the 18th-century mint julep and eggnog to the Prohibition-era hurricane and boulevardier, these classics are just that, classic.
Many of these cocktails remain favorites for us today. Others may have been forgotten by the general public, though there are some very interesting drinks worth noting and reviving.
1. RAMOS GIN FIZZ
Originally called the New Orleans Gin Fizz, then renamed for its creator, Henry C. Ramos, the Ramos Gin Fizz takes the classic fizz and ups the milkshake-like creaminess. Famously requiring 12 minutes of shaking gin, simple syrup, lemon juice, lime juice, egg white, heavy cream, and orange flower water, we admire any bartender responsible for the cocktail featuring on this list. However, it fizzled 10 spots down the list si
The Paloma may be the most-loved tequila cocktail at VinePair. We were thrilled when it entered this list for the first time in 2017, and are thrilled to see it again today. The Paloma mixes tequila and grapefruit — we think Avion, Spindrift grapefruit soda, and a squeeze of fresh lime work best — or you can switch it up with, seasonal ingredients, or substitute tequila for slightly

3. PIÑA COLADA
Another nod to the tiki resurgence, this 1970s-era Puerto Rican slushie pleasure is made with white rum, coconut cream, and pineapple juice. It enters the ranking this year as one of the most-ordered cocktails of the year.
4. CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL
The Champagne Cocktail is a simply named, sophisticated beverage that’s evolved over time. The original recipe, from the 1862 volume, “Bon Vivants Companion” by Jerry Thomas, suggests mixing brandy or Cognac with Champagne. Here at VinePair, we make a version with Angostura
We love Negronis at VinePair, so much so that we’re sorely disappointed when a bartender doesn’t know how to make one. Thankfully, that shouldn’t happen much longer, as the Negroni claims the No. 2 spot for the fifth year running. Gin, Campari, and vermouth in a perfect, punchy ppack

The Mojito might be Cuba’s most popular contribution to cocktail culture. The simple mix of white rum, lime juice, cane sugar, and soda (with muddled mint, please) is fresh and tropical, and it’s a classic that we don’t expect to disappea

8. APEROL SPRITZ
If you haven’t noticed the Aperol Spritz, you haven’t been drinking (or on Instagram). Moving into the top 10 from No. 22 in 2017, this popular aperitif is as visually pleasing as it is tasty and easy to make: a three-two-one ratio of Prosecco, Aperol, and soda. May the summer of spritz.
10. CORPSE REVIVER
Talk about a revival. This drink rises 22 spots this year, and has an interesting twist: There are two versions. Corpse Reviver #1 calls for Cognac, calvados, brandy, and vermouth; while Corpse Reviver #2 uses equal parts gin, lemon juice, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc, and a dash of absinthe.
11. VODKA MARTINI
The Vodka Martini spiked in popularity in 2017, but slides down 15 places in 2019. It’s pretty basic: a shot of chilled vodka mixed with a little dry vermouth, somehow still in demand at the world’s best cocktail.
12. TOM COLLINS
The original Tom Collins recipe calls for gin, lemon, and soda water; essentially, it’s a spritzy lemonade for grownups. This classic cocktail slipped 17 places since 2017, but still holds on as a global favorite.
13. LONG ISLAND ICED TEA
Long Island Iced Tea is a timeless anomaly: vodka, gin, tequila, rum, triple sec, and cola in big ol’ glass. It’s sweet, sticky, boozy, made for making memories (and promptly forgetting them), and holding on at No. 44 in the world’s most popular cocktails.
We may have sherry’s resurgence to thank for the Bamboo, a cocktail made with one-and-a-half parts sherry, one-and-a-half parts dry vermouth, two dashes Angostura bitters, and two dashes orange .
James Bond drinks vodka Martinis, shaken; sensible people drink Martinis the way they’re meant to be: with gin, stirred. Consider the Vesper a compromise, using both vodka and gin, as well as
