The word cocktail originated from how we use to dock non thoroughbred horses by their tails. The horses were later referred to as ‘cocktail horses’ or just simply cocktails. Later, the word cocktails was used to describe and ill-bred, low status person or vulgar person. Eventually we adopted the name for mixed drinks.
Originally cocktails consisted of spirits, water, sugar and a touch of bitters. Nowadays cocktails can be just about any type of mixed drink. There are so many great cocktails to choose from, so picking 5 great videos was really hard.
