Mixology, in a nutshell, is an in-depth study of the art of creating mixed drinks.

Imagine you’re at a bar and have ordered a Long Island Ice Tea. As one of the most popular cocktails today, the Long Island Iced Tea is typically made with vodka, tequila, rum, triple sec, gin, and a splash of cola.

While a bartender and mixologist would both know how to create the drink, there are some differences between the two.

The study of mixology would explain the history of the drink, why it is made a certain way, and how each of the liquours contributes a different taste and flavor the enhance the drink. It also provides an understanding of why this drink would taste different depending on the ratios in the cocktail.
