Old Fashioned cocktail

A classic cocktail is any cocktail which appeared in the publication of Jerry Thomas' 1862 book, Bar-Tender's Guide, and most other cocktails created between then and the publication of Harry Craddock's Savoy Cocktail Book in 1930. They were also known by the specific type of glass used when they were served. Since the 1980s, a cocktail has come to mean any drink created in any type of glass.
