    Hola analaura!

    I suspect that we will get a lot of different opinions on this. I have always wondered about it myself.

    Here is an interesting version:

    Acá tengo la respuesta a tu pregunta:

    cocktail first attested 1806; H.L. Mencken lists seven versions of its origin, perhaps the most persuasive is Fr. coquetier "egg-cup." In New Orleans, c.1795, Antoine Amédée Peychaud, an apothecary (and inventor of Peychaud bitters) held Masonic social gatherings at his ********, where he mixed brandy toddies with his own bitters and served them in an egg-cup. The drink took the name of the cup, in Eng. cocktay. Cocktail party first attested 1928.Saludos!!
