ShoutingMan!'s Review of Ibartender Cocktail RecipesReviewed on 9/6/18 2:50 PM
My current favorite cocktail recipe app is abandonware so I’m looking for a new one. This one looked intriguing, with a small but enthusiastic set of reviews, and possibly robust set of recipes and custom user recipes. Unfortunately, as another reviewer noted, the recipes weren’t what I expected. And easy example: Lemon Drop. I expect it to use Absolute Citron or other lemon-infused vodka, some lemon juice, simple syrup and maybe an orange liqueur. The recipe here was straight v**** and a lot of lemon juice. From a previous developer response, they state they’re using classic, long accepted recipes. I believe them. That’s fine. But I’m looking for recipes that are generally similar to what’s broadly used in 2018. This discrepancy between what I expect and the library was across my favorite drinks. Additionally, the UI design is not attractive, to me. It’s not bad, but it’s not a delight. Especially compared to the old app I’m replacing, which is elegant and way to use. I decided that for me a kinda clunky app that I’d have to write all my core recipes anew wasn’t what I wanted. If this got tuned up, the recipes expanded to include contemporary approaches, and a UI refresh of the UI (see the sadly abandoned Old Sport for inspiration), I’d gladly pay a few bucks for it. This app is a good option to compare to the other freemium apps, which have their own pluses and minuses.

It’s ok but most cocktails are in bad taste. There are few good balanced cocktails but they are hard to find. I wouldn’t waste your time, there are better cocktail apps out there. But if you like making Everclear more palatable then maybe this is for you.

Seriously. This app is that good. I now have most likely a little over a thousand drinks installed under Kevin’s app and would be devastated if support was dropped for it. Being a home bartender I’ve also found useful at out local bar for introducing custom drinks. The things that really make this app shine is the ability to know which drinks you can make based on ingredients on hand and the fact you can add custom ingredients in order to add new drinks all the time. I have the app installed on both iPad and iPhone. Of all my apps, this is the one I treasure most as I have tons of hours (and fun) pouring over drinks on the web and adding them and the ingredients to this app. Oh, the new backup feature is a God send too! Perhaps the only thing I can think of is a print feature. And I think the only time I could see this really coming into play is if, and only if, support was dropped at least all the work put into adding custom drinks wouldn’t be lost. Anyways, super app and HIGHLY recommended.

I would like to be able to enter a particular ingredient that is not on the list. I cannot create my own cocktail list if I have an item that is not in the drop down. It’s great that you can select the type of glass and the measurements but your stuck with items on the drop down list.

Overall, I really like this ap. there are a lot of different and popular drink recipes, how to make them and some have pics of what they look like. Recipes are fast and easy to look up.

This is a great app. The support is outstanding. You will be able to easily add custom drinks. You are also able to search for drinks based on what you have available. That is a really handy feature. There is a huge list of very tasty drinks which can easily be searched based on various criteria. In my opinion, this is the only bartender app you'll need. The author of the app is also always making improvements and adding new drinks to the list. Why download another drink app when this one has it all.
