Look forward to using it more and seeing more features

The thing that drew me in was he art style, being a huge old school gaming nerd. What kept me interested was the usefulness and potential of the app. I look forward to obtaining more packs in the near future, both to support the developers and obtain more recipes, and in time making this the primary way I look up drinks.

I’m hopeful that with age this will be my primary resource for cocktail recipes. I do wonder if cocktails other users create or add will be available to the rest of the users. Fingers crossed!

Finally, a bar app that "thinks" like a bartender

The thing this app gets right is that spirit brand names fall onto categories of spirits, and some of those categories are similar enough to be somewhat interchangeable. Most cocktail recipes are developed as essentially advertising for specific brand names, which makes the recipes confusing for people who don't know much about them or which other spirits are likely to be similar enough in flavor profile to be used instead. This app does away with brand names for the base spirits altogether (though they're smart enough to include them in the database so you can still search for them) and tells you which of your character- driven liquers will work well enough when a recipe calls for something else.

The only thing I actually need to use my experience-based bartending knowledge for when using the app is to make adjustments in recipe ratios to compensate for the flavor differences that I "know" to be true for such substitutions, but I can see future iterations of this app (or one like it) being able to do this as well if the flavor characteristics are appropriately coded in the back end.

Great job you guys, this is the app I recommend to people who are looking to get going with their home bar.

Cool & Creative.

Very inventive, I don’t need the other apps I downloaded to test out - this will do fine.
This app gives you all the freedom in the world to stock, learn, create and explore. It’s digital theme, sound effects and the ability to customize not only your digital bar but the little things like the font style, sound, and even the apps color options add a great touch - the little things add up. A great amount info and overall style, I love how we can build a collection of our own creations.
I really don’t drink much, but it’s very interesting to try new drinks and experiment here and there ...wether we’re good at that or not. Doesn't stop me from taste testing. The app makes it more fun.
And lastly this app was free but I see myself visiting their Mixel Shop soon to see what other ingredients are out there.
