A cocktail is a beverage concocted of various alcoholic beverages combined with fruit juices or other liquors. On the other hand, a mocktail is a non-alcoholic beverage which resembles an alcoholic beverage or a cocktail.

A cocktail is an exotic alchoholic beverage made with various combinations of fruits and different types of alchohols. Cocktails are probably the most of all alchoholic beverages in resto-bars and other upscale bars. Mocktails are basically the non-alchoholic equivalent of a cocktail. They are beverages that contain pretty much the same ingridients as a cocktail but without the alchohol.

A cocktail must have at least one spirit, one sweet/sugary drink and one sour/bitter drink. Initially, cocktails were a mixture of spirits, sugar, water, and bitters but now the definition has expanded to include any mixed drink that contains alcohol. Cocktails can include juices, cream, sugar, honey, fruits, herbs and/or soda.

Mocktail is any mixed drink that does not have alcohol. The name mocktail is derived the word mock meaning to imitate or mimic referring to mocktails imitating a cocktail as it seems very similar to a cocktail but does not have alcohol or any other spirits. Mocktail is simply a mixed drink that does not have any spirits or alcohol.
