Cocktail Mixer

Did you know that there is a Cocktail Mixer app for the Kindle?  No more flipping through cumbersome books to find cocktail recipes!  I am especially excited about this one.  It includes both alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.  So, it is a real treat for all ages.  Not to mention, it is cheap!

There are 350 drinks to choose from.  I’m sure bartenders would laugh at me for being so in awe at the size of the collection. From an amateur’s point of view, that is quite a selection to choose from.  Now that it is finally Fall, the Apple Strudel and Apple Cider slider sound especially good.  There are cocktails for every season.  Check out the Cocktail Browser section for cocktails by theme or occasion.

Of course, when you first enter the program, it reminds you to drink responsibly.  There are coffees and other sweet non alcoholic mixed drinks available for kids or non drinkers.

You can search Cocktail Mixer’s database in several ways.  Search by cocktail name or by the alphabetical index.  You can also search by cocktail ingredient.  Do you have random ingredients sitting in your kitchen that you don’t know quite what to do with?  There might be a cocktail in Cocktail Mixer’s database that can use those ingredients.

You can also enter up to three ingredients and come up with available drinks that use them.  There are drinks for every occasion.  From casual to formal, breakfast to nightcap, Cocktail Mixer has it covered.

Cocktail Mixer is very easy to navigate with the Kindle’s toggle button.  Use it to switch through the selections, and use the keyboard to search for drinks you may already have in mind by typing in the first letter.  The quick searching and easy to read recipes make this Kindle app a great reference guide.

The recipes are easy to follow and don’t require much preperation effort.  I can’t wait to try some more of the drink flavors out.  In addition to the apple flavored drinks, the coffees and mint flavored drinks sound delicious.

Maybe HandyX or another Kindle developer can create a recipe database for food and desserts.  I think it would be awesome to have an “quick cooking” recipe guide.

I am eager to hear how others like Cocktail Mixer, and their experiences with trying different recipes.  I am always amazed at the ideas developers come up with for the Kindle, and this one is quite creative.
