Cocktails that dropped out the Top 100 Cocktails

Among the 13 cocktails that dropped out of our Top 100 during 2023 are several that previously boasted lofty positions, particularly the Dirty Banana. Others had just been clinging in there for some years.

The demise of the Negroni Sbagliato proves that while social media can pick something up, it quickly falls once the attention moves on.

Tequila Sunrise - this sat at 40th place in 2022, up from 46th place in 2021. It was a new entry at 80th place in 2020.

Negroni Sbagliato - social media drove this mistake of a cocktail into the top 100 in 2022. It fell out in 2023.

Brown Derby - a new entry at 68th place in 2022, it dropped out in 2023.

Dirty Banana - this creamy cocktail fell out of the Top 100 in 2023, but this continues a trend, falling from 70th place in 2022, 33rd in 2021, 10th in 2020, 13th in 2019, and 12th in 2018.
