If Colorado is raising a glass, it's most likely with this cocktail.

Over the last few years, I've fallen in love with cocktails. Not in a drunken, "woo girl" kind of way. It's more of an appreciation of what it takes to create a perfectly balanced cocktail. Being able to craft a drink with the right amount of acid, sugar, and zing from the booze it truly is a work of art. My go-to liquors are typically bourbon or gin.

Of course, everyone's got their favorites including the state of Colorado.

According to Thrillist, Colorado's favorite cocktail is a Paloma. This cocktail is made with tequila, grapefruit juice, a squeeze of lime and a little salt on the rim. How refreshing does that sound on a hot summer day?

The most popular cocktails across the nation are Long Island Iced Tea and Whiskey Sour, followed by Moscow Mule. Classic brunch drinks like Mimosa, Tequila Sunrise, and Bloody Mary were also number ones in nine states.
