Mojitos are indeed very popular in Europe. I was proud to see the Ti Punch as #10.
Also re: that linked survey, FrogPrincesse, I admit to not being intimately familiar with the bar culture of France, and I know that Mojitos are very popular in much of Europe right now, but 80% of all cocktails sold in France? Wow.
And Piña Colada at #2? I suppose as a Puerto Rican I should feel some pride in that, but mostly I'm just surprised. [/size]
The Pina Colada on the other hand was a little odd. Although I have to admit that it is indeed the very first cocktail I have ever attempted. Part of its popularity is probably because rum is widely available and very cheap, pineapple juice and coconut cream are easy to find. I thought for sure the French taste with respect to cocktails must have evolved by now. I guess not that much!
