Cocktail - Bamboo


Cocktails

 

Origin of the name cocktail.

There several discussions about the origin of the name cocktail:

1) It comes from the tail of the cock (cock tail) for the analogy with the colors of the fledged animal

2) It come from a pharmacist of New Orleans, Antoine Peycahud, who was preparing the drinks in what he used to call “coquetier”

3) It comes from the daughter on an Indian Chief that was called Coquetiers who used to prepare a mixture of herbs for the well-being of the body

Whatever the origin is, whatever the legend is, the important thing is that the drink(s) must be prepared to satisfy the eyes and the taste and be prepared according to the rules of each drink(s).

There are four major categories drinks:

1) Cocktails

2) Pre-Dinner

3) Fancies

4) Long Drinks

There are 50 classic cocktails recognized by the International Bartender Association (I.B.A.).

I will list one of them every week strictly in alphabetical order. Open for requests and questions.
