Normally cocktail is known to be a mixture of alcoholic drink, but there is a lesser known definition of cocktail which refers to small pieces of food, normally served in cold as appetizer, and they are served in the cocktail glass, hence the name. A popular form of this type of cocktail is shrimp cocktail, which can easily be found in many restaurants in Malaysia.

Beside shrimp, one may also find chicken cocktail, or other seafood cocktail. Some time, such cocktail comes with some wine, but it won’t get you drunk !
