Origin: [L. concoctio.]
A concoction is, strictly speaking, a combination of various ingredients, usually herbs, spices, condiments, powdery substances, or minerals, mixed up together, minced, dissolved, or macerated into a liquid so as they can be ingested or drunk. The term "concoction" is sometimes loosely used metaphorically in order to describe a cocktail or a motley assemblage of things, persons, or ideas.
