Cocktail

 

(Russian, kokteil), a drink made of a combination of such ingredients as vodka, bitters, fruit liqueurs, grape wines, cognac, rum, juices, fruits, berries, cream, eggs, honey, ice cream, and ice. Cocktails are usually bright and varicolored. They are prepared as either strong drinks or dessert drinks; they are carefully mixed in a metal shaker.
