Mr. Beard’s Citrus Cooler

Leave it to the foodies at the James Beard Foundation to come up with a lovely summer punch recipes that extracts maximum flavor from the simplest ingredients. It couldn’t be easier to make – which is good news, since we’ve been serving them up all summer!

We’ve reworked the original recipe so you can serve up a single glass. Multiply the recipe by X and build it all up in a large pitcher if you’re making it for a crowd.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
