Cocktails are the choice of drinks for most women for a number of reasons including the fact that they do not seem like conventional alcohol but a mix of varieties. A cocktail is a mixed drink typically made with a distilled beverage which may include one or more of gin, brandy, vodka, whiskey, tequila, or rum and is mixed with other ingredients. If beer forms part of the ingredients of a cocktail, such is referred to as a beer cocktail.
Cocktails tend to contain one or more types of liqueur, juice, fruit, sauce, honey, milk or cream, spices, or other types of flavourings as may be required. They may also vary in their ingredients from one cocktail mixer to the other and from one region to another. It is often possible for two cocktail creations to have the same name but have a totally different taste as a result of the ways in which the individual drinks were prepared.
