The practice of brewing and fermenting things into alcohol has been around for centuries. But the creation of the cocktail marks a decided turn in society’s relationship with hard drink. While the term cocktail definitely predates its first written documentation, in 1806, the upscale New York newspaper The Balance, and Columbian Repository were the first to publish the name and define it as "a stimulating liquor composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters."
Cocktails quickly became a popular option throughout America until prohibition hit, which instead of quashing the trend, made it more popular than ever. In secret speakeasies, bartenders had to get creative to make the crude and often unappetizing bootlegged liquor palatable, creating all manner of creative drink recipes, some of which are still in use today! Through ups and downs, since its inception the cocktail has hung on, even when it was technically illegal. And today, they’re more popular than ever, with creative bartenders across the country coming up with new and interesting combinations all the time. So whether you prefer classics like Martinis and Manhattans, fancy tiki-inspired drinks like the Mai Tai or Zombie, fruity or iced, we’re certain you’ll find something to tickle your tastebuds among our delicious lineup of mixed drink recipes!
