A view of the various ‘Collections’ available!
While it is rare that you will find me without my iPhone within arm’s reach, the extent of my apps does not stray too far from, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Solitaire (such a classic!). It’s not that I don’t enjoy them; I just never know what to look for in the overwhelming App Store. But, my difficulty searching has made discovering an app that I love all the more exciting, and I have found an app today that I’m so excited about, I have to share!
Today, ABSOLUT Vodka launched a new version of its Drinkspiration iPhone App, which is pretty much a miniature bartender you can keep with you at all times. If you enjoy making cocktails, learning about making cocktails, or drinking cocktails (and who doesn’t), you need to download this FREE app!
Similar to my problem deciding on what apps to download, I often have trouble deciding on what cocktails I want to drink. Countless times I have sat staring at the spirit bottle on my table, trying to decide what fun cocktails I can make using the ingredients I already have in my house. With the new Drinkspiration App I can now use the Search feature to generate drink results based on the ingredients I have, making the “what to mix” decision much, much easier!
There are over 500 drink recipes to explore on the app, and they are all easy to navigate, sorted by number of ingredients and the taste of the cocktail. Each cocktail recipe has how-to instructions as well as video clips demonstrating various mixing techniques. You can add your favorite recipes to your ‘Collection’ by simply double clicking on a drink you like, resulting in your own personal cocktail book, or you can search the premade collections based on the spirit or the type of cocktail you’re looking for.
Different drink recommendations are provided based on which direction you scroll.
There are so many more features that I haven’t even mentioned, partly because I haven’t had a chance to fully explore yet, but I know I will be reaching for the Drinkspiration App this weekend when my friends and I are planning our Halloween festivities. This app is interactive, easy to use and overall a helpful tool in so many ways. I highly recommend you checking it out (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/drinkspiration-by-absolut/id320379903?mt=8), but just a warning, it’s very easy to lose track of time exploring through all the drink recipes and collections!
Enjoy and happy drink exploring!
