Cocktails have been around since the 1800s. They flourished during Prohibition when bartenders used sugar, citrus and bitters to balance out the unpleasant taste of bathtub gin. Since Prohibition ended in 1933, spirits have exponentially improved, giving bartenders an excellent base for building drinks.

Mocktails, however, are relatively new.
