INDIANAPOLIS — Hoosiers love their tequila!

Upgraded Points, a website that helps people upgrade their overall travel experiences, used data from Google Trends over the last year to see what cocktail recipes people were looking up to make at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the data, Hoosiers were making tequila sunrises the most. The cocktail is made by pouring tequila and orange juice into a glass over ice. Then, you add the grenadine, which will sink to the bottom. No stirring is necessary!
