Ratings and ReviewsSee All
The very best cocktail app.
Why this app is not #1 in category is a failure of either word of mouth or the app store’s optimization. First of all, the PDT Book is exceptional due to quality of recipes, insights into building cocktails, and perhaps most importantly - a complete index - allowing you to quickly and and efficiently search your favorite liquors from your cabinet and discover new and inventive cocktails to make with those liquors.
This app takes the book to the next level, using the powers of computer memory and cataloging capabilities to open up 1000+ cocktails that you can potentially make. Most useful is the inventory feature - which creates a digital catalog of your liquor cabinet and then a list of all the cocktails you can make out of your cabinet.
The app features substitution recommendations when you might be missing an ingredient and a potentially very expensive “increase your options” features which prioritizes bottles to add to your collection based on the number of new recipes a particular bottle might open up to you.
Notes and favorites features allow you to make the app all your own and collect your favorite recipes in a single list.
I recommend this book to anyone from the amateur mixologist to bar tending pro. It is well worth the price I promise.
All these apps are awesome
I have purchase most of these apps at this point. Rating this one, but they are all good. I’ve discovered a bunch of new cocktails I really like. The ingredient inventory feature is what makes these apps so useful. It syncs across all the apps making it even better. I use the “Increase Your Options” list at the liquor store all the time.
One suggestion, it would be great if the “Increase Your Options” list synced across all the apps you own. I find myself toggling between apps when I’m shopping to figure out everything I need. Favorites and Flags sync, this should too.
I think I also found a bug on created lists. I have a list I created called “Want to Try”. I add recipes to it across all the apps to collect things to try next. I’ve noticed that when I remove something from the list after I’ve tried it the drink ends up coming back. I’m guessing it’s resyncing from the other apps, but that’s just a guess. This doesn’t happen with Favorites or Flagged list items.
Overall, I recommend these apps to anyone looking to up their cocktail game. I’ve recommended them to all of my friends.
Much better than the book
Every cocktail lover should have the PDT book (aka the Bible), but they should only pull it out to read or flip through while relaxing on the couch (hopefully with a perfectly balanced cocktail). For all other occasions, just pull out the app and find exactly what you're looking for much faster.
The design of this suite of apps is perfectly suited to the at-home cocktail enthusiast. Input your ingredients once, sync to all other apps (easily authenticating via 1Password support), flag recipes, and drink lovely cocktails. I'm a particular fan of flagging recipes I want to try because the list of flagged recipes shows you results from all installed apps in the suite. Very easy to find a good one to try (likewise with favorites).
