Cocktails - Defined and Recipes

Cocktails—Name of a mixed drink; also applied in cookery to oysters and clams.

OYSTER COCKTAIL—Half a dozen freshly opened small oysters dropped into a sherbet glass, seasoned with a dash each of tabasco, Worcestershire, tomato and Harvey sauces.

CLAM COCKTAIL —Same as the preceding, using clams for oysters and omitting the Harvey sauce on account of its saline flavor.

NEPTUNE COCKTAIL—Three each freshly opened small oysters and clams dropped into a sherbet glass, seasoned with a few shreds of fresh horseradish, a dash each of tomato and walnut catsups, and a dash each of Worcestershire and tabasco sauces.
