Cocktail vs. Mixed Drinks

after reading the Serious Cocktails article and this got me questioning -is there a difference between a true cocktail and just a mixed drink? for instance, is rum-n-coke a cocktail or mixed drink? the same for a bloody mary?

what are some of your favorite drink combinations? (so far, my favs are bloody marys and rum-n-cokes)
