On the other hand there does seem to be an acceptance that the earliest known cocktail dates back five thousand years to Mesopotamian.

On this website we have a small section for drink and cocktail recipes, these are really here by public demand, we have plans to increase the coverage of our cocktail and drink recipes but this is very much a work in progress. We've been running recipe pages for about ten years, in that time user and researcher feedback have been central to developing and improving our content. If you have any drinks or cocktail recipes you'd like to suggest or if you want us to feature your favorite cocktail get in touch. You'll find the Yourcounty cocktail details below.

You'll notice that we feature mulled wine, this is a seasonal drink that only really makes an appearance at Christmas. It seems to be gaining in popularity in the UK. We have a recipe for mulled beer, we haven't published it yet and I'm assured is very popular in Eastern Europe. Warm aromatic beer, has anyone tried this?
