Are you more of an Irish Coffee person, or is it eggnog all the way for you? Well, you can find out what others’ favorite Christmas cocktails are thanks to food review site Grill Cook Bake.

The site looked at Google search data over the past 45 days leading up to the big holiday to determine which states were drinking what festive-themed drinks.

First, they narrowed it down to six options: eggnog, holiday punch, holiday sangria, hot toddy, Irish coffee, and wassail. Then they looked at each state to determine which was the favorite in each one and also found the overall favorite in the country. The winner? Eggnog.

It topped the list in a whopping 26 states (so apologies to those who hate the creamy drink), making it the Christmas cocktail winner by a landslide.

As for the least popular? Holiday sangria and a hot toddy tied for the bottom run, with only Virginia and Montana respectively picking the drinks.

If you’re curious about all the states’ preferences, or if you want to find out whether your holiday cheer habits rank in the top numbers, you can head over to the Grill Cook Bake website for the full report.
