Origins of cocktails
Why is it called a cocktail ?
Cock tailings were the left over dregs in a barrel of ale. This was mixed with various left over dregs of spirits and sold to the less wealthy as a very potent drink. The taste was somewhat questionable.
The first recorded use of the word cocktail was in 1803, in the USA.
Cocktails were occasionally declared as a method for curing several ailments by quack doctors.
