Where Did the Term “Cocktail” Come From?

Nowadays, the word “cocktail” is synonymous with the term “mixed drink” but this was not always the case. In centuries past, these concoctions fell into several categories, including juleps, toddies, martinis, and fizzes. Today, a cocktail is known as any mixed drink with at least two ingredients, one of which is alcohol.

The term “Cocktail” was coined in the early 19th century, but no one knows for sure its origin. Some say it came from New Orleans and is derived from the French word “coquetel” – or egg cup. This cup looks much like what one would use to imbibe a cocktail. Other legends claim that actual cock’s tailfeather’s were used to garnish mixed drinks, and the name came from this. One particularly interesting account claims that mixed drinks were referred to as cocktails because they often contained ice, which diluted the quality of the spirit within. In the 19th century, a desirable woman who lacked purity was sometimes referred to as a “cocktail”. Who could possibly say for sure which of these intriguing accounts holds a nugget of the truth?

However the word was born, its conception has invigorated the age-old tradition of appreciating distilled spirits, and opened the doors to limitless creativity and invention. From classics like the vodka martini, to more modern takes like the cosmopolitan, a well-crafted mixed drinks with vodka invites you to enjoy intriguing flavors in surprising combinations. No matter your tastes, you’ll never have to have the same drink twice!
