Cocktails Were Invented in America.
The origins of the word "cocktail" are pretty murky — with several competing theories. But spirits historian David Wondrich says the first mention of the word "cocktail" was in a British newspaper in 1798. "Cock-tail" was used as a slang term for a ginger drink.
While a bartender may seem like a modern profession, they have been around since the 1400s.
