Fun Facts and History of Cocktails

Cocktails are a most recent creation of the last 100 years. Mixing
drinks with fruit juices and sweet liquors was probably not
something our great grandparents did. It appears that the
Prohibition in the US spawned the “speak-easy” a place to go to
have banded alcoholic delights. The road traveled by cocktails
has had it ups and downs. During the 1980s, cocktails bloomed
with films starring Tom Cruise and everyone was into the scene.
Then they sort of disappeared for a while. Now they are coming
back, but more on the from an Internet stand-point. There are
now thousands of sites out there showing you how to mix your
favorite cocktails, history about each, and where to go to sample
them if you have two thumbs when it comes to doing things.
