Vector Bar is the cocktail recipe app that makes mixology easy! Home bartenders and aspiring mixologists love how fast you can search cocktails and quickly find new drinks to make. With beautiful photos and recipes from top mixologists, Vector Bar sets the new standard in cocktail apps.
RECIPES YOU CAN MAKE NOW
Quickly enter your liquors, liqueurs, and syrups on the Bar View to see What’s Ready Now and What’s Almost Ready. Anything you have in your home bar is likely to be in our list of cocktail ingredients, and if it isn’t, let us know!
WHAT TO BUY NEXT
When you’re ready to expand your bar, tap on What To Buy Next to see exactly what you need to get the next time you’re at the liquor store. Vector Bar lets you know which new bottle or bitters will unlock the most new cocktails.
INTELLIGENT COCKTAIL SEARCH
Vector Bar’s cocktail search is unrivaled. In the mood for Bourbon and Honey? Just type it in the search at the top of the Home View and immediately see results for Gold Rush, The Democrat, and a Hot Toddy. Interested in recreating classics from the Pegu Club or Flatiron Lounge? Just type the bar, city, or mixologist and instantly see results. Vector Bar now supports searching for ingredients you don't like: just type -Mezcal to search for any cocktail without Mezcal, or search for Negroni -Gin to see all of the Negroni variants without Gin.
CUSTOM COCKTAIL RECIPES
Edit a cocktail recipe to tweak amounts and make it your own, or create a brand new cocktail recipe from scratch. You can even add custom ingredients for the unique syrup or infusion you invented. Your custom cocktails and ingredients are securely synced to your account as part of your Vector Bar subscription.
Vector Bar's recipe view is designed for making cocktails, with step-by-step instructions in the precise order you need them. Check off each step to see your progress and keep track of exactly where you are in a recipe, so you'll never accidentally forget a pour again!
LOG AND SHARE
Keep notes, photos, and star ratings for each drink you mix so you can learn how to improve your craft and tailor it to suit your tastes for the next round. Add Your Friends to see what cocktails they are logging and to give them Cheers. Ratings, Photos, and Notes are instantly shared in the app between you and your friends.

Ratings and Reviews
Almost there… UPDATE: It’s there!
UPDATE: I don’t know if I just didn’t see it, but the dev responded with the exact feature I mentioned in my review so bumping this up to 5⭐️
This app is quite handy when it comes to thinking up cocktail menus for parties, impressing guests, and honing your mixology skills. The only thing I wish for is an “Almost ready” tab where it lists options for cocktails that you just need one more ingredient to complete. I’ll have most of the ingredients for a lot of the cocktails listed where I’m just one ingredient away so when I’m at the shops, I don’t know how close I am to greatness with the purchase of just one more ingredient. Other than that, this app is great, and I use it constantly to make drinks on the weekends and expand my cocktail repertoire.
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for the kind words! We do have a feature for you there today - it's called "Almost Ready" and is on the Bar tab. Check out the "What to Buy Next" feature too, it helps you go shopping efficiently.
The best cocktail app in the App Store
I’ve been very impressed by how good this app is. It makes it very easy to discover new recipes and is very intuitive to use. My favorite feature is the ability to easily see a list of ingredients that I don’t have in stock which will unlock more cocktails. It’s already the best cocktail app in the App Store, but the developers push out new features frequently and it gets even better with each new version.
This is now my go to cocktail app, nothing else gets close to what this this app does.
Makes it easy
As an at home “bartender”, I absolutely love this app. I’m able to easily look up recipes, create my own, and rate drinks I’ve tried so I don’t have to try to remember which I would like to make again. Regular updates. Actual responses from service. Worth the subscription imo.
