You're right, I cheated a little bit there!

I don't think that cheating is a thing.

Also, thanks for making my new go-to example of a monoid a cocktail.

I have been using soup and tango for a while, and people don't seem to relate.

Another thought on the monoidal properties of cocktails: You may want a multiset / bag rather than a set of ingredients, since an important property of a cocktail is how many parts of each ingredient go into it.

I ended up writing a bit about it here. :-D
