The history of cocktails is a long and varied one, with the first recorded mixed drinks appearing in the early 18th century. The word “cocktail” itself is thought to have originated in the United States in the early 19th century, and it originally referred to a mixture of spirits, bitters, water, and sugar. The exact origin of the word is unclear, but it is believed to be derived from the French coquetier, which means “egg cup,” as the first cocktails were often served in egg cups.
Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, cocktails became increasingly popular and sophisticated, with bartenders experimenting with a wide variety of ingredients and techniques. The invention of new technologies, such as refrigeration and ice-making machines, also played a significant role in the evolution of cocktails, as they made it possible to create more complex and varied drinks.
Today, cocktails are a major part of the global hospitality industry, with thousands of different recipes and variations being served in bars and restaurants around the world. The popularity of cocktails shows no signs of slowing down, as people continue to discover new and exciting ways to mix and enjoy them.
Note: This is the first year for CocktailChef presenting the top 100 cocktails for 2024. We will be aiming to start from this year and will be rolling the top 100 for every year.
