a gin and tonic isnt a cocktail because its just a mix of tonic water and a spirit

Is a Dark & Stormy a cocktail? Because that's just a mix of rum and ginger beer.

It is if you put a shot of rum/whisky in it.

By definition doesn’t a cocktail require at least one spirit, a mixer and some type of bitters? By that token almost nothing should be considered a cocktail as they don’t contain bitters.

nope apparently not! "an alcoholic drink consisting of a spirit or spirits mixed with other ingredients, such as fruit juice or cream."

Decided to buy Chicago Town’s new beer (yes, really), in conjunction with Seven Bro7hers. No idea what to expect. Undertones of pepperoni, presumably.

Getting a bit lairy tonight having a wild Saturday night in lockdown drinking some spiced rum and playing PlayStation. Red Leg is what I’ve got for the night and it’s strawberry floating delicious.

Red leg stuff is yuuuuum.
I've got some hazelnut spiced rum at the moment it's really really good.
