Do me a favor, would you? Before you decide to skip through all of the words of this article and go straight to the info graphic to find out what Illinois' favorite cocktail is, I want you to look at the bottom right hand corner of your screen. What time is it?

Are you suddenly wishing it was happy hour?

Sorry about that; I really didn't mean to remind you that there's still three hours left until you can set your "out of office," log out of your computer and punch that time time clock; but, I did want to give you something to look forward to- unwinding with a cocktail.

Might I suggest a Paloma? According to Thrillist, it's Illinois' most popular cocktail.


Never heard of it? Me either.

Here's what's in it:
2 oz Tequila
1 oz lime juice
1 oz grapefruit juice
0.5 oz agave nectar
Sparkling water
Grapefruit wedge

Sounds refreshing.
