Classic Cocktails and Long Drinks

The difference between cocktails and long drinks is that a cocktail is a mixed drink typically made with a distilled beverage such as, gin, brandy, vodka, whiskey, tequila, or rum, that is mixed, while a long drink is an alcoholic mixed drink with a relatively large volume. This terminology had fallen out of favor over the last decade or two, but is now enjoying a revival.
