The Oxford Dictionaries define cocktail as « An alcoholic drink consisting of a spirit or spirits mixed with other ingredients, such as fruit juice or cream ». A cocktail more specifically may mean a beverage with at least three flavors, one of which is alcohol. Mixed drinks without alcohol that resemble cocktails are known as « mocktails » or « virgin cocktails ». The origin of the word cocktail is disputed.

Cock-tail is a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters—it is vulgarly called bittered sling, and is supposed to be an excellent electioneering potion, in as much as it renders the heart stout and bold, at the same time that it fuddles the head.
