1856, mix +‎ -ologist, jocular.[1]

NounEdit

mixologist (plural mixologists)

  1. A person who creates cocktails; a bartender.
    • 1999, Bob Emmons, The Book of Gins and Vodkas: A Complete Guide, p. 63.
      By the way, the difference between a bartender and a mixologist can be confusing, but normally a bartender serves the patrons at a sit-down style bar, where a mixologist would usually work at a very busy service-style bar.
