Delight your guests with Cab Franc Icewine Chocolate Rimmed Cocktails! We have tried many cocktails with Icewine and once we started rimming the glass with chocolate we were hooked!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, the first definition of cocktail known to be an alcoholic beverage appeared in the May 13, 1806, edition of The Balance and Columbian Repository, in which an answer was provided to the question, "What is a cocktail?". The editor replied:
Cock-tail is a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters - it is vulgarly called bittered sling, and is supposed to be an excellent electioneering potion, in as much as it renders the heart stout and bold, at the same time that it fuddles the head. It is said, also to be of great use to a democratic candidate: because a person, having swallowed a glass of it, is ready to swallow any thing else.
