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 the 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, 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, you get updates and new drinks, forever.

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:

9 Purple Cocktails that Don't Suck

9 Purple Cocktails that Don't Suck

We confess that we usually avoid brightly-colored colored blue, pink and purple cocktails; those candy-like hues have long been the chief indicator that a cocktail would be a syrupy, saccharine confection not worth drinking. On the other hand, there's no denying how lovely it is to see a violet drink in a glass – it looks like something magical, like a mana potion or the juice of some otherworldly fruit.

We've found nine solid purple cocktails that were actually good enough to make it in the Cocktail Party app. Out of the dozens of purple drinks we tested, these cocktails are the most balanced and drinkable – and none of them will turn your tongue purple!

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
