The Origin of Cocktail

Everyone probably knows what a cocktail is. The word cocktail first appeared in a newspaper(The Balance and Columbian Repository) published in Hudson, New York, on May 13, 1806, saying, "Cocktail is a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters." And the date, May 13, is also known as World Cocktail Day.

But in fact, there's not much information about the origin of the cocktail, but there's a lot of stories behind it. One of the most famous stories is that it got the name because a colonial drink garnish looks like a rooster's tail or cock tail. There is also a story that the vividly mixed cocktail with various colors resembles a rooster's tail.

โ€˜The Bartenders Guide: How To Mix Drinksโ€™


The first cocktail guide was "The Bartenders Guide: How To Mix Drinks," published in 1862 by Jerry Thomas, a bartender often called the father of American Mixology. You can still purchase this book in reprint from Amazon.


Oh! Non-alcoholic cocktails are called "mocktails" or "virgin cocktails."
