What was your favorite adult beverage to enjoy at home during the pandemic? 
People were mixing up more cocktails at homes as bars were shut down last year.
So the travel rewards company Upgraded Points wanted to see which ones were most popular in each state.
It used Google Trends to see which cocktail recipes people were checking out.
In New York, the top drink was a Vodka Fizz. New Jersey evidently like piña coladas and Connecticut is a coquito state.
Turns out the mimosa was the most popular in the highest number of states, with six and five different cocktails were the most popular in three states each.
They are the margarita, mojito, piña colada, white Russian, and wine cooler.
