“What is a cocktail?” This question was first officially answered in a newspaper in 1806. To which he answered: “A cock-tail, then, is a stimulating liquor composed of spirits of any kind—sugar, water, and bitters—it is vulgarly called a bittered sling and is supposed to be an excellent electioneering potion, inasmuch as it renders the heart stout and bold, at the same time that it fuddles the head.” Another speculation of the world’s origin said that: During the Colonial period, tavern keepers stored their spirits in casks. When the casks got near empty, the dregs, or tailings, would be mixed together into one barrel and sold at a reduced price—poured from the spigot, which was referred to as the cock. Patrons wanting this cheaper alcohol would come in asking for “cock tailings.” Still there’s yet another story about it that the word came from New Orleans. Eventually the drink was named coquetier, the French term for an eggcup. Peychaud’s guests shortened the name to “cocktay,” and eventually it became “cocktail.” 🍸 🍹 🍸🍹💋💋

Buenas noches mis Reinas!
Admiro a todas las chicas que se pueden tomar unas fotos estupendas en el espejo, a mi no me salen como me gustarían y ahora (como estoy en los últimos meses) ni pensarlo.
Aún así, no me rindo!
