Bottoms Up! Study Reveals Most Popular Shots in Minnesota and Wisconsin
If you go out to the bars or even to parties, chances are that shots were involved at some point, or at least being offered. Of course, everyone has their favorite shot and they always love to have others try it as well.
But, what is the most popular shot Minnesota and Wisconsin? That's just what The Loup found out in their recent study to determine not only the favorite shot in each of those two states, but for every state in America.
Their methodology to determine the favorite shots was pretty straightforward:
We compiled 33 keyword terms from popular sources like Intoxicologist, Bevvy, and The Spruce Eats. Next, we collected Google Trends data from May 3, 2017, to May 2, 2022, and analyzed the search interest across the U.S. Read on to find out the best shots to take in your home state.
After compiling and processing the date, it was interesting to find that Minnesota and Wisconsin do not share a favorite shot and you may find the results surprising. Any guesses?
While Jägermeister and Jello Shots were the most popular across America, each coming out on top in 10 states, those were not the favorite shot in either Minnesota or Wisconsin.
For Minnesota, the winner was the Scooby Snack, which contains a mixture of coconut rum, melon liqueur, banana liqueur, pineapple juice, and whipped cream. That shot was also North Dakota's favorite. They are quite tasty and they won't knock you on your butt.
As for Wisconsin, they were the only state where the Cherry Bomb shot was the winner. If you're not sure what that is, it's usually made with cherry vodka, grenadine syrup and Red Bull. Obviously, if you love cherry-flavored things, chances are you'll love it.
So, it would appear both states prefer their shots on the sweet side. Personally, my favorite shot is the Red Snapper, which is a tasty combination of Crown Royal, amaretto and cranberry juice. Give that a try the next time you decide to cut loose.
Whatever you prefer to drink, have fun and make sure to enjoy in moderation because once shots get involved, things can turn pear-shaped in a hurry.
