But first, a little history!
Cocktails appeared at the end of the 18th century in the United States and England. But it was only during prohibition in the United States in the 1920s that the cocktail reached its apotheosis. Indeed, they made it possible to mask the contraband alcohol of bad quality with the addition of another drink.
Until the mid-1970s, cocktails were mostly made from whiskey, rum and gin. Vodka-based cocktails spread in the 1980s, often replacing gin.
