A cocktail is an alcoholic drink made with liquor and other things like soda, juice, cream, flavorings, and other liquors. They can be simple, like vodka with orange juice (screwdriver) or very complex (3 different kinds of rum and a blender and a prepared glass). They were very popular during Prohibition since the alcohol might not have been high- quality and mixing it with juices and such helped disguise its roughness. best cocktails recipes
The official definition of a “cocktail,” consistent with the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, is “an iced drink of wine or distilled liquor mixed with flavoring ingredients.” While that’s a reasonably broad definition, it reflects the fashionable practice of pertaining to almost any alcohol as a cocktail.

It read: “Cocktail may be a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters.” that is the accepted definition of ingredients used today when pertaining to the “ideal” cocktail.. here check the best cocktails recepies
