While the Mixed Drink is simply any (hopefully tasty) combination of spirits, juices, mixers, etc. There are a variety of different types of mixed drinks which have evolved over the years which attempt to categorize the specifics of how such a drink is constructed. One of the most popular today, is the Cocktail. Originally defined as "Spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters", such a designation would allow a customer to walk into any bar and as for a "gin cocktail" or "brandy cocktail" and the bartender would know precisely what they wanted. While many of these different drink categories have fallen out of use, the following is a relatively complete list of what some of the different types of mixed drink that were being ordered. We've attempted to provide a simplified "definition" of the format of that particular drink, but in some cases there may not be a clear, or commonly accepted definition, in which case we've tried to provide as close as we can.
