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.

A nice surprise

I’ve tried probably dozens of drink recipe and/or ingredient-tracking apps—I installed about four different ones, including this one, on the same day. I seem to gravitate to this one. When i need a quick recipe, or can’t decide what to make, this is the one I tend to open. I got a new liquor about a week ago, and realized I should add it to my “bar”—I opened the app and found that I’d already added it sometime in the last week. That was when I realized I was no longer testing this app, I was using it regularly and relying on it. Forget brand names, forget “Order Now!” buttons, this app will tell you what you can make and how to make it with what you have on hand. Simple mission, simple art, simple interface, simply useful.
