*The first cocktail in the world (the Sazerac) was an Absinth cocktail.
The Frenchman Antoine Peychaud (who invented the Sazerac) was experimenting in New Orleans with various mixed drinks and served these up to his friends in egg cups. But the Americans couldn’t pronounce the French word for egg cup ("coquetier") correctly. So the drinks which Peychaud served up were soon being called cocktails.
