A Little About Cocktails

Cocktails – challenging the drink, consisting of various alcoholic ingredients with sugar, water and bitters, which usually is also called "bitter sling." This word occurs also in the balance sheet Warehouse Columbia, dated May 13, 1806, almost certainly can be argued that the 'cocktail' was first introduced in America. Coglasno legend, during the War of Independence in America lived Squire Allen, owner Tavern "Grape branch" and a big fan of cock-fighting. Once he discovered the loss of his best fighter, and soon in their small town on horseback rode a young lieutenant, who was holding under his arm precious fugitive. Squire was overjoyed and ordered the return of beloved Daisy prepare young people for the best refreshing drink. Daisy Mix a little bitters and house wine with an impressive portion of Kentucky whiskey added a few chunks of ice, and all raised a toast to the "rooster tail" (Cock's Tail), as Jupiter (the name of a legendary rooster) has not lost a single pen. Then the gallant Lieutenant proposed to call this drink "Cocktail" and through his fellow officers, the news of this refreshing drink spread throughout the army.

In addition, in the XVIII century a mixture of alcohol drinking and visitors cockfights, to celebrate the victory of their favorites, while the number of drinks mixed in a glass, is consistent with the number of feathers left behind the winner. The French are not willing to concede the palm and the Americans argue that the word "cocktail" is derived from the French "soquetier," which they call the glass in the shape of an egg.

Betsy's husband died fighting in the armed forces of the colonists.

In order to feed their guests, Betsy stole from a neighbor a few roosters, cooked them, and feathers adorned the cups with the mixture, which the gallant French drink, exclaiming at the same time: "Vive le cock-tail!" (Long live rooster tail!) Many famous cocktails were invented in the late XIX century – a "Mint Julep", "Daiquiri," "Gin Fizz", "Corpse revayver" and "Martini".
