Liquor Ties Wine as the Second-Favorite Adult Beverage

Liquor Ties Wine as the Second-Favorite Adult Beverage A new Gallup poll says that in terms of first choice, liquor and wine are nearly on equal terms in America.

Both beverages still lag behind beer, the United States' most popular alcoholic drink.

Results from the poll say that 29% of adults named liquor as their first drink of choice, a jump from 19% in 2018.

Wine is barely holding onto its lead at 30% in the poll and has seen a drop in recent years.

In terms of income, the poll adds that those making less money are also choosing liquor.

For those taking in $40,000 or less, 33% picked liquor while wine was the choice for 23%.

Choosing wine increases for those making more money, as it jumps to 35% in relation to people at the $125,000 mark.

For liquor, the figure falls to 25% in the six-figure category.
