The head banquet man at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New York City started serving the concoction as a menu staple in 1938.
1530s, "digestion," from Latin concoctionem (nominative concoctio) "digestion," noun of action from past participle stem of concoquere (see concoct). Meaning "preparation of a medicinal potion" is from 1851; sense of "a made-up story" is from 1823.
