The origins of the term cocktail

rooster tail

cocktail cocktail
  • The first derives from the English Cock (rooster) and Tail (tail) and from the English countryside tradition of drinking a very colorful drink that recalls the colors of some fighting cocks
  • The second originates from the similarity with the term coquetier which in 1800 was an egg container but also used as a glass for spirits
  • The latest and most imaginative goes back to a legend that sees wealthy sailors who, once landed in South America, celebrated by combining European liqueurs with tasty tropical fruit juices decorated with a rooster feather
