This is the difference between a mixed drink & a cocktail

Do you know what the difference between a mixed drink and a cocktail is? In Sweden, “mixed drink” is a collective term for almost all toddies, highballs, lowballs and cocktails.
The definition of a cocktail is a mixed drink made from three or more ingredients. Originally, cocktails were a blend of spirits, sugar, bitters and water – the Old Fashioned being a typical example. Contrary to popular belief, a cocktail doesn't have to be served in a specific type of glass.
