Most Instagrammable Drinks of 2016

We live our drinking lives by the golden rule of, “the camera drinks first” and are very guilty of unapologetically asking our companions to wait as our ice melts or beverage cools while we staged our drinks to get the perfect shot. While we look back on the year, here are our thoughts on some of the Most Instagrammable Drinks of 2016.

Now let’s clear with a disclaimer, these are not necessarily our picks for the best drinks of the year, just the most darn photogenic ones that made us all whip out cameras to do it for the gram. Shout out to everyone who proudly raised their drinks in the air stood on top of a chair or angled the lighting perfectly to capture their best drink porn. And special thanks to everyone who tagged @thirsty in their drinks pic this year, let’s keep it going in the New Year!
