How Many Cocktails?

I was up late last night watching this show “Secret Life of… Cocktails“, a great history of cocktails. If you get a chance it is worth the 30 minutes.

The part of the show for me is when they were theorizing on how many cocktail recipes are out there? Hundreds, Thousands, Millions? Someone tried to figure out the number of cocktail combinations that could be made out of the ingredients at your average bar.

The answer – over 17 Million. And that is an average bar. Holy shit, I got some work to do on this site. I’m gonna be up all night.
