  • Disappointed.

    I’ve been chasing Jim Meehan’s “Kitty Hawk” from the CLT Centurion Lounge for a while now trying to figure out the mixture so that I can make it at home. It is the one beverage that I truly enjoy so I took the chance and blew $10 praying for the recipe and it wasn’t even there. Massive bummer please add it asap.
  • It’s a great app but it’s missing some key features for a home bar

    I haven’t been to PDT the speakeasy, but I assume everything on the app is pretty much what is offered. And I can understand that is part of a branding thing. And I love so many of the cocktail recipes. But an app for the home bartender needs to allow people to edit the recipes, add their own recipes, and add their own ingredients. I can understand if y’all wanna make another app for this sort of thing though.

    I was looking for a better cocktail app, and was happy to pay for the upgrade. I entered my 35 ingredients and was able to make 2 drinks (one I’m having now). Unless you are ready to stock up on walnut-infused cognac and popcorn-infused rum, save your $10 and get another app.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beware It’s $10 for very little

    Total ripoff. The app gave me 10 basic recipes I could make with my 50 plus ingredients for which I don’t need a recipe. I know 20 more I can make with what I have that aren’t listed and for which it would actually be helpful to have the recipes. Then, I discovered their gimmick. You have to buy apps for 5 or 6 more books to get anything comprehensive. Don’t waste your money.
  • Unlocked my mixing brain.

    I had been in a cocktail rut, just making the same things because I couldn’t find new ways to combine what I had and I couldn’t go by every bottle in the store. These apps opened up my cabinet to literally—yes, literally—hundreds of new possibilities. The interface is as brilliant and elegant and classy as a Vieux Carré. Do it. You’ll love it.
  • Great app

    Great app, worth the money. The list of ingredients is amazing. Only 4 stars though because there is no option to add custom cocktails or missing classics.
  • Awesome drinks recipe app

    This app includes all of the recipes of the PDT book, plus more, and continues to receive periodic updates from time to time, so at $9.99 this app is really a great deal compared to the book version. In addition to the sheer number of recipes available, you get all of the unmatched functionality and features of the MixologyTech suite of apps. The most important functionality is the inventory feature, which lets you enter your inventory on hand in the app. It then shows you which recipes you can make with your ingredients. With each ingredient an explanation is given of what it is, and all ingredients are provided as links so you can pick an ingredient in a recipe for example and then see which other recipes call for that ingredient. Substitutions are recommended for like ingredients when you are missing a specific ingredient but have a good alternative on hand. That's a particularly important feature in this app since recipes call for specific brands of spirits, and if you don't have that brand on hand another will be recommended as a substitute. A sync feature that takes about 30 seconds to set up will sync all of your ingredients across all seven MixologyTech apps and across multiple devices. This is particularly handy if you use the app both on an iPhone and iPad. It also means that any time you delete and reinstall one of the apps you can just set up the sync again and all of your ingredients are repopulated immediately. Favorites and flags make it easy to find your stand by drinks and drinks you've been meaning to try. You can make custom lists of recipes and journal notes on each recipe, which is helpful if you want to make a drink again but it was just a little too sweet, not sweet enough, too strong, etc. Recipes can be searched and filtered by various criteria including base spirit, method of preparation, drink type, provenance, and more. Another great feature, if like me you're always looking to expand the inventory and possibilities of your home bar, is the recommendation of ingredients to acquire. Near the bottom of the home screen you'll see a count of your ingredients, and what percentage of recipes you can make from the app. It then recommends the next ingredients that would most increase the number of drinks you'd be able to make if you added them to your inventory. This app provides a great all around group of cocktail recipes made to the high standards of one of the top cocktail bars in the world. For something a little more geared towards beginners I'd recommend the Shaken & Stirred app, and for the more serious cocktail übernerd I'd recommend Martin's Index of Cocktails which includes an exhaustive list of recipes from the mid nineteenth through mid twentieth century.
  • It's the Substitutions, Silly.

    A digital cocktail guide with the care to tell you when you have an appropriate substitue for a specific property on hand, or are missing only one or two ingredients. Perfect for planning, and perfect for plotting that next expansion bottle.
