Cocktail Party

Finally — an app that shows you all the tasty drinks you can make from the stuff you’ve got.

You know the story:

You just spent an hour Googling for one flippin’ recipe you can actually make – something easy, something good, nothing blue.

But you’ve got bupkis, because you don’t have kumquat juice or balsamic-infused peach hair or whatever all these damn Pinterest recipes require, and so here you are, slurping halfheartedly on your consolation White Russian.*

White Russian cocktail ingredients - coffee liqueur, vodka, cream
*We ain’t hatin’ – we love White Russians.

Cheer up, buttercup.

Cocktail Party’s got this. Just tell it what you’ve got, and it’ll tell you what you can make. There aren’t any ads, there’s no obnoxious social sharing, and entering your stuff is quick and painless.

It’s just you, your booze, and page after page of solid cocktail recipes you can actually make, right this very instant.

Frequently-Asked Questions

Why should I pay for Cocktail Party when there are so many free apps?

There are a lot of wonderful free cocktail apps – as long as you like sour mix and ice cream in your drinks. They tend to boast a lot more drink recipes than Cocktail Party, too.

But here’s the deal – you won’t know if any of those drinks are good until you try ’em. And by the time you’re pouring that Razzmatazz Blueberry Redhead on the Beach down your gullet maybe you’re thinking, “Gosh, I’d pay a few bucks just to know that my app has only the most delicious, drinkable kitchen-tested drinks. If only such a thing were possible.”

We’re here to tell you that it is possible – for less than the cost of a pocket-sized bottle of gas-station vodka, you can have the best drinks ever devised by humanity’s finest mixologists, right in the palm of your hand.

Cocktail Party for iPad is $3.99 for iOS or Android, and it’s the best investment you’ll ever make in your cocktail adventures, this side of a good citrus juicer.

Do I have to pay to get more drinks?

No! We think in-app purchases are highway robbery.

You buy Cocktail Party once for iOS or Android, you get updates and new drinks, forever.

What drinks are you planning to add in the future?

Our goal is for Cocktail Party to somehow, impossibly, contain every single good drink recipe ever invented. A lofty goal, sure – but noble, we think!

We’ll add few dozen new recipes, each one tested and perfected by the willing test subjects down at the Cocktail Party Labs.

We test drinks from a variety of sources: cocktail recipe books, newspapers and magazines, respected blogs, industry message boards and social media, and wherever else we can find genuinely solid drink recipes.

Are we missing a drink you love? Let us know on our support form. We’ll add it to our test queue!

I'm not in America. Will Cocktail Party work for me?

Cocktail Party works wherever you are. Choose from imperial or metric measurements, and search for ingredients by their regional names.

We’re constantly adding new drinks and ingredients from all over the world.

Are we missing your local spirit, mixer, or cocktail? Let us know!

Why don't you hacks call for correct glassware?

Fancy glassware is great, and generally we try to specify the traditional glass a drink is served in.

That said, we’ve served Old Fashioneds in Big Gulp cups in the middle of a midnight dust storm at Burning Man, so we’re not ones to stand on tradition. The drinks you’ll make with Cocktail Party are so delicious, you won’t care if you’re drinking them out of crystal goblets or plastic buckets.

How many therbligs will the app require me to perform?

You will experience at least six (6) therbligs in the process of creating a drink with Cocktail Party:

Better Lychee Cocktails: Alternatives to the Lychee Martini

Better Lychee Cocktails: Alternatives to the Lychee Martini

The lychee is a queen among fruit: delicate, floral, etherial, delicious. So it's a shame that that the most popular lychee cocktail is the Lychee Martini - an acrid, dated drink with none of the charm of the real fruit.

We've drunk our way through nearly every lychee cocktail recipe under the sun, and we've found 7 solid lychee cocktails good enough to make the cut to get into the Cocktail Party app.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
