You can use any variety of lime you like – key limes are welcome anywhere a Mexican lime is.

Don’t even bother with the pre-squeezed juice that comes in the little plastic bottles. The stuff they use to keep it fresh-ish imparts a bitter, chemical flavor that’ll kill your drinks dead.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

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!
