Living in Idaho means being immersed in a vibrant drinking culture, where the abundance of remarkable vineyards, breweries, hops fields, and local products is a testament to our rich beverage scene. Some will joke that Idaho might have a drinking problem, but one thing is for sure... we know what makes a good drink!

When it comes to signature cocktails, Idaho has its own unique gem that has apparently captured the hearts (and palates) of both locals and visitors for years.

There's a recent article from Taste of Home that shares the perfect signature cocktails in each state, and we of course were excited to see what drink made the list for Idaho.

This classic cocktail blends the richness of whiskey with the tangy kick of lemon juice and a touch of sweetness from simple syrup. The result is a perfectly balanced drink that has become a favorite among Idahoans.

While the Whiskey Sour is Idaho's most popular signature cocktail, it's interesting to note that another drink holds the top spot in terms of overall sales volume...

According to Taste of Home, Google Search data suggests the Canadian Whiskey Black Velvet is Idaho's "top-selling booze by volume."
