Origins of "Cocktail"

There is much debate about the origins of the now-common term "cocktail," which the Oxford American Dictionary of Current English reminds us can reference even non-alcoholic mixtures (e.g. fruit cocktail). But as to the alcoholic sort . . . Was it something naughty first referenced in a satirical newspaper in 1798 to describe a rollicking party the night before? Was it an 1803 article from The Farmer's Cabinet in Vermont, claiming such drinks to be "excellent for the head"? Perhaps it will never be pinpointed, but most agree that by 1806, there was a common understanding of cocktail as an alcoholic drink composed of mixed spirits.

Cocktail Ingredients

What is the best cocktail mixer or syrup for my preferred alcohol? What is a shrub drink? Of course these questions have winding and objective answers, but let's delve in. Best cocktail mixer or syrup? Follow your taste buds by looking through our Mixers & Ingredients. Click on the item that sounds appealing to you, and you'll usually find a description of the taste profile along with suggested uses. What is a shrub drink? Making shrub syrup was originally a means of preserving fruit long after it was picked prior to the widespread availability and use of refrigeration. The technique survives today using a combination of vinegar or fruit juice, sugar, and other ingredients. The result is a tasty concoction that can help you add flavor without sweetness.
