All Hail iPhone….
Created by the same wizards at CocktailDB (everyone, say hi to Martin Doudoroff) the Cocktail App is like the website, but on steroids. Not only does the App have all the recipes from the original website, they’ve also added recipes from Harry Johnson’s Bartender Manual, Gary Regan’s The Joy of Mixology, Ted Haigh’s Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails, The Savoy and more. Extra recipe modules will also be added in the future.
One can easily navigate the over 1500 recipes alphabetically, by base, type, flavor, ingredient or the Search bar. It gives you variations of recipes, each one color-coded depending upon how old the source is (the older the recipe source, the older the background “parchment”, and yes, that means that he has included his source for the recipe). You are able to choose your favorite recipes as well, by touching a star that will be placed in the background of the ingredient list, and you are able to search just through your favorites if you so desire. Apparently you can even share recipes with friends through email or twitter, and change the units of measurement from imperial to metric.
And the best part for me? I no longer have to wait for CocktailDB to load via the web as the App is downloaded onto my iPhone.
UPDATE: I was just informed that the iPhone App’s recipes are completely different than those on the web site. Looks like I’ll have to put that shortcut back on my phone!
Glory, glory, glory days!!
