It’s another weekend over here at Magic 98.3 and we want to celebrate with you, but there is a looming question that every New Jerseyan has when they go out to their local bar. What kind of Cocktail do I want? Well Top Data looked at the trends of every state and you won’t believe what New Jersey’s favorite cocktail is.

Well let’s start off with some data, since the pandemic visits during everybody’s favorite happy hour went down dramatically. However, in more recent months the numbers have been on the up and up, with a 54% national increase in visits with August being the highest number recorded compared to pre pandemic figures. 

How often are residents of the Garden State really going out though? Well according to the data New Jersey this year has 10.4 bar visits per 100k residents. It may not be as large a number as say North Dakota which ranked first with 22.4 bar visits per 100k, but considering New Jersey has a little over ten times the population of North Dakota, 10.4 is quite a lot. Now what is New Jersey’s Cocktail preference?  

Well, this may come as a shock to some but the classic Margarita was not only New Jersey’s favorite cocktail, but the preferred choice of 21 other states including Florida, Illinois and of course New Jersey! So, no wonder we’ve seen more fun in the sun this summer, but with the fall weather now quickly approaching you may want to get your favorite cocktails in, to see the full data as well as which states preferred which cocktail Click Here. So, keep up with all the fun in the Garden State with us at Magic.
