Cocktail chronicle - Act II

Cocktail chronicle - Act II

The cocktail really took off right in the middle of the 18th century. This was a century which invented the art of blending liquids with, it was claimed, complex properties which had the ability to heal many diseases. Starting with the much-lauded curative benefit of the cocktail, let's take a look back at some dates and anecdotes about the origin of the name which has now become a phenomenon and a form of art de vivre.

From Grog to Gin & Tonic

1740: Origin of Grog
Nicknamed “Old Grog” due to the grosgrain clothing he was always draped in, the English Admiral Edward Vernon suggested adding a liter of hot water to each quarter liter of rum handed out to his own sailors in 1740. As it tasted particularly bland, his troops decided to add a squeeze of lemon, a citrus fruit with well-known anti-scurvy properties. A new drink that retains the Admiral's nickname was born: Grog.
1760: Appearance of Gin & Tonic
Originally invented to fight against the effects of malaria, Gin & Tonic was brought to India in 1760 by the British East India Company. It was first used to combat malaria and as it had a bitter taste due to the presence of quinine, tonic water was mixed with gin, whose green juniper notes improved its flavor. Beyond its preventive role, this particularly ingenious blend became a popular drink and is still known today throughout the world as Gin & Tonic.
