NEW YORK — If you enjoy a minty mojito or tart margarita on the beach, a new survey finds you also most likely have a great sex life! A survey of 2,000 adults who drink alcohol looked at what their favorite beach cocktail said about them, finding that the most-loved drinks are beer (17%), margaritas (16%), and wine (16%).
Results also show that those who prefer a mojito also have the most success when it comes to dating (88%) and are happiest with their lives (85%). They’re not the only ones having fun, however, as Bloody Mary drinkers are the most adventurous (80%) and are likeliest to say “yes” to everything (73%).
Although those who like an ice-cold beer are the most extroverted of the bunch (33%) respondents who prefer sangria are the most likely to have at least five friends. Meanwhile, margarita-enjoyers are their introverted counterparts (50%).
Your astrology sign could also dictate what you love the most, results show. Daiquiris are written in the stars for Libra respondents (48%), while Aries love a good margarita (23%) and Cancers opt for a fruity sangria (20%).
Wine drinkers have perhaps the most diverse music taste, preferring hip hop (37%) and jazz (30%) while those who like beer jam out to rock (41%) and pop music (34%). When it comes to TV, respondents who like a fruity Sex on the Beach are also the most likely to enjoy watching a horror movie (41%), compared to sangria drinkers who live for intense drama flicks (41%).
7 in 10 want to live at the beach
Conducted by OnePoll for CheapCaribbean, the survey found that no matter the drink, three in four respondents say they’re at their most relaxed when enjoying a drink at the beach (76%), with a quarter sharing the perfect time for a drink is after going for a plunge in the ocean.
Those who favor a Bloody Mary are the most likely to catch some waves (38%) while respondents who go for a tropical Sex on the Beach prefer to go for a hike (32%), and daiquiri drinkers enjoy scouring the beach for seashells (64%).
“Whether one prefers a getaway to St. Martin, Aruba, Cancun, or Punta Cana, there’s an abundance of beautiful, tropical destinations to visit and find their happy place,” says Dana Studebaker, vice president of marketing of consumer brands at Apple Leisure Group, in a statement.
Seven in 10 respondents say the summertime makes them feel more alive than any other season (71%), and a similar percentage wish they could enjoy the feeling of being at the beach all year round (70%).
This may be why 40 percent are not ready for summer to end, and why two-thirds of Americans are thinking of visiting somewhere tropical and beach-like when the weather where they live is poor (67%).
Where are they off to? When it comes to tropical beaches, respondents are most interested in visiting Eagle Beach, Aruba (36%) or Montego Bay, Jamaica (24%).
