It’s New Years Eve! Many of you are getting ready to welcome in the new year at events throughout the country. Brandishing glasses, you will toast 2016 surrounded by the people you know and love. But whilst champagne is an obvious choice, have you considered knocking up some delicious cocktails for your party guests too?
There are hundreds of flavours on offer, such as Long Island Ice Tea, Mojito’s and Margarita’s to name but a few. But if you are not a seasoned cocktail drinker, some pointers are handy. Thankfully, there are several cocktail apps available to download on the iOS App Store. These apps offer easy to follow cocktail recipes. Whether you are looking to create alcoholic or virgin cocktails, this collection of apps we have tried, tested and approve of below will get you on the right track.
8,500+ Drink & Cocktail Recipes
If you ever found yourself in need of some variety in your drink repertoire, then fear not. This app packs more than 8,500 cocktail recipes for you to peruse and try. This app allows users to add favourite drinks to their favourites list so they are easy to find at a later date, a comprehensive search function, specially divided drinks categories and a randomiser button that offers a completely random drink in one click.
Recently redesigned, Cocktail Flow offers a wide range of drinks recipes to try with illustrative, step-by-step instructions. Grouped into collections and themes, you’ll be able to finish off a special occasion in style. Other features include options to share and save cocktail recipes, recipes in 9 languages and three measurement units are also available.
With over 8,000 drink recipes available, Mixology offers plenty of choice. This app comes complete with a handy ‘Liquor Cabinet’ section. This lets you enter all the liquor and mixer types you have on hand, which will then be used to offer you suitable cocktails to make with them. This is perfect if you already have enough booze and would prefer to use this up rather than purchasing more. Other features include a random drinks section, users can switch between imperial and metric units, a bar or alcohol store locator. Users can also rate and comment on cocktails, as well as sharing cocktails with friends via email and social media.
Like the others in this list, Cocktail Kit also offers a plethora of recipes. Including over a thousand recipes, this app features all of the most popular cocktails, including Woo Woo, Sex on the Beach, Manhattan, Martini, Black Russian and a Strawberry Daiquiri, as well as offering brand new variations. The useful keyword search feature allows users to search by type or ingredient, so themed cocktails made with your favourite tipple of choice is only a click away.
The Apple Service Centre wish you all a fantastic New Years Eve celebration, and wish you all the best for 2016!
