Party cocks

December 22, 2016

Q: What are party cocks?

A: They are those little cocktail sausages handed round at parties at this time of year, often with a little pot of mustard to dip them into. I seem to recall that I first heard this term used by Alexei Sayle; actually I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone else use it. But it’s good, isn’t it?

Merry Christmas to one and all! Enjoy your parties, and your party cocks.

    Good luck with that one Brandon!
    The origin of “cocktail” isn’t definitively known but one theory is that it came from a New Orleans apothecary who served brandy mixed with bitters he’d invented in egg cups (coqutier in French) although why he didn’t use a glass is unexplained.
