The “Cocktail”

 It may surprise you to learn the word “cocktail” appeared first in an Amherst, NH publication called “Farmer’s Cabinet”. According to this blog post. Known as the “Farmer’s Cabinet” describes a “cocktail” beverage as a cure “for the head”, a.k.a. the hangover cure. This boozy mixture was defined as a strong spirit mixed with an edible garnish and juice or tonic water.

The Prohibition-Era Cocktail 

To most, a cocktail is a mix of alcohol, simple syrup, juice, or soda, and an edible garnish like an olive or a cherry. However, the original cocktail was often considered disgusting and, if made incorrectly, even poisonous! 

In some ways, we can thank the Prohibition for the cocktails we know and love today. During the 1930s, many bartenders started to get creative, adding cream, soda, and juice to disguise the alcohol. Once alcohol was legalized again, cocktails became the premium drink of society.
