#1 Vodka

An all-time popular beverage, vodka is a must have item for any home bar and needs to be available at any party. It is a transparent liquor originating from Russia and Poland. This powerful beverage is mainly made up of water and ethanol. Vodka stands out as a powerful liquor as it is customarily made by distilling the fluid from potatoes or grains. Many vodka brands add sugar or fruits as their base. If you’re planning to use an after hours alcohol delivery, you might consider adding vodka to your list. It is your ally for popular cocktails like Bloody Mary, Cosmopolitan, and Screwdriver.

#2 Brandy

Another type of liquor that has seen a popularity boost in the past few years is brandy. It is achieved after distilling wine and has a distinct taste. With between 35% and 60% alcohol it is considered  an excellent digestif. Most brandies are matured in wooden casks, as a result, there are numerous brandy varieties available for you to choose from. Popular brandy cocktails include the Sazerac and Sangria but it is often enjoyed straight up.

#3 Mezcal

Even though Mezcal is commonly mistaken for tequila, it is considered a completely different liquor. Mezcal has a smoky aroma, and it is a beverage obtained from distilled agave. It is a popular liquor in Mexico, and around the globe. You can enjoy Mezcal in cocktails like the Mezcal Negroni and Esplanade Swizzle or you can enjoy it’s natural flavours by enjoying sips from a chilled glass./

#4 Rum

Every party you attend should have rum available as it is an aromatic beverage with enticing flavours. Rum is a distilled drink achieved after fermenting and distilling sugarcane molasses. It is one of the most popular liquors around the globe, so it is no surprise that there are different types of rum available, including light and dark rum. Some people prefer serving dark rum on the rocks and using light rum for cocktails. Some of the popular rum drinks you can serve include Pina Colada, Mojito or Rum and cola.

#5 Tequila

Tequila is a beverage made from the blue agave plant and has similarities to Mezcal. However, tequila stands out since it has a higher alcoholic grade. You are probably used to seeing tequila in movies or tv shows served as a shot with salt and lime, but higher end tequilas are meant to be sipped on and enjoyed slowly as they lack the harsh afterbite that comes with a lower grade tequila. Of course, you can enjoy popular tequila cocktails like Margarita and Tequila Paloma.

The above is just an overview of some of the most popular liquors available today and how they are enjoyed.
