Cocktails are any alcoholic mixed drink that contains alcohol. Cocktails are generally created with a mixture of alcohol or one or more spirits mixed with other ingredients such as fruit juice, flavored syrup, or cream. Many websites publish both original recipes and their own interpretations of classic beverages, while many websites publish both original recipes and their own interpretations of classic cocktails.

The origins of the term “cocktail” are a source of debate. The first known mention of a cocktail as a beverage was in The Farmers Cabinet, published in 1803 in the United States. The Balance and Columbian Repository (Hudson, New York) published the first definition of a cocktail as an alcoholic beverage three years later, on May 13, 1806. The ingredients of a cocktail used to be restricted to alcohol, sugar, water, and bitters, but as the 1800s advanced, this definition grew to include the addition of a liqueur.

In 1862, Jerry Thomas published How to Mix Beverages; or, The Bon Vivant’s Companion, which offered ten cocktail recipes with bitters to distinguish them from other beverages such as punches and cobblers. Mrs. Julius S. Walsh Jr. of St. Louis, Missouri, coined the phrase “cocktail party” in 1917 to describe how cocktails originated and increased in popularity during the 1900s. Due to a lack of access to wine and beer during Prohibition in the United States (1920″1933), liquor-based cocktails were increasingly popular before declining in popularity in the late 1960s. The style of mixology, which blends traditional cocktails with novel ingredients, fostered the rise of cocktail culture in the early to mid-2000s.


Cocktail recipes are commonly shared on websites like and in the modern world and Information Age. Cocktails, as well as the places where they may be found, are frequently included in travel magazines and guides. Some cocktails, such as the Mojito, Manhattan, and Martini, have become restaurant staples as well as a pop-cultural phenomenon, with martinis being especially associated with James Bond thanks to the Goldfinger phrase “shaken, not stirred.”

According to the Oxford Dictionaries, “an alcoholic drink consisting of a spirit or spirits mixed with other components, such as fruit juice or cream.” A cocktail has alcohol, sugar, and bitter/citrus flavors. A highball is a mixed drink made entirely of distilled whiskey and a mixer like soda or fruit juice. Many of the International Bartenders Association’s Official Cocktails are highballs. When a mixed drink just contains distilled alcohol and liqueur, it is called a duo, and when it also contains a mixer, it is called a trio. Sugar, honey, milk, cream, and a variety of spices can all be used.

Non-alcoholic mixed beverages that resemble cocktails are known as “mocktails” or “virgin cocktails.”

There is uncertainty over the origins of cocktails. Cocktails used to be created using a blend of bourbon, sugar, water, and bitters. Liqueurs, on the other hand, were widely employed in cocktails by the 1860s.

How to Mix Drinks; or, The Bon Vivant’s Companion, the first bartender’s guide, featuring cocktail recipes, was published in 1862 by “Professor” Jerry Thomas. In addition to punches, sours, slings, cobblers, shrubs, toddies, flips, and a variety of other mixed beverages, there were ten recipes for “cocktails.”
