For many of us in Iowa, we've resolved to drink less in 2022. Myself included. That said, there are still evenings I want to have a spirit or two, and I know what my go-to is. I won't give that info just yet as, I happen to have the same favorite booze as the state of Iowa.

Back at the end of 2021, I shared the story of Iowa's favorite brand of liquor (for last year) and it was, for like the 22nd year in a row... Black Velvet Canadian Whiskey. So perhaps you won't be terribly surprised when I tell you what our favorite type of spirit is.

According to the website Upgrade Points, our favorite alcohol in 2022 is indeed whiskey. Whiskey is certainly a popular choice nationwide as 17 other states picked it including neighbors Missouri, South Dakota, and Nebraska. Fancy ol' Wisconsin picked brandy. Ooh. So fancy.

The same study found that America's next favorite alcohol is vodka with 15 states choosing it as their favorite, including Minnesota.

Next was cognac, scotch, and tequila, each pulling in four states for top dog honors.

So how do Iowans enjoy their whiskey? While the study didn't say, my hope is in moderation, and a fancy cocktail, like an old fashioned. VERY sophisticated. Like Wisconsin.

Oh, and yes, whiskey is my fav. too. I guess I am allowed to stay in the Hawkeye State.
