PDT Cocktails for Positive User Reviews

All these apps are awesomeI have purchase most of these apps at this point. Rating this one, but they are all good. I’ve discovered a bunch of new cocktails I really like. The ingredient inventory feature is what makes these apps so useful. It syncs across all the apps making it even better. I use the “Increase Your Options” list at the liquor store all the time. One suggestion, it would be great if the “Increase Your Options” list synced across all the apps you own. I find myself toggling between apps when I’m shopping to figure out everything I need. Favorites and Flags sync, this should too. I think I also found a bug on created lists. I have a list I created called “Want to Try”. I add recipes to it across all the apps to collect things to try next. I’ve noticed that when I remove something from the list after I’ve tried it the drink ends up coming back. I’m guessing it’s resyncing from the other apps, but that’s just a guess. This doesn’t happen with Favorites or Flagged list items. Overall, I recommend these apps to anyone looking to up their cocktail game. I’ve recommended them to all of my friends..Version: 1.2.7

It's the Substitutions, Silly.A digital cocktail guide with the care to tell you when you have an appropriate substitue for a specific property on hand, or are missing only one or two ingredients. Perfect for planning, and perfect for plotting that next expansion bottle..Version: 1.2.3

Excellent. Don't be discouraged.An excellent companion to the book. Don't be discouraged if the initial assessment shows you can only make a small amount of the recipes - many of the "missing" ingredients may be things you've already got around the house, especially if you're making cocktails at home: sugar, water, lemons, limes, etc. And if you've got sugar and water you can make simple syrup, so add that one to your list too. Additionally, the app offers basic substitutions to make it easier to increase the number of recipes available to you. Example: you can substitute generic "bourbon" if you don't have "Buffalo Trace", "rye" if you don't have "Old Overholt", and so on. I love how easy it is to add your ingredients, how it shows how many recipes include each ingredient, the description of each ingredient and examples for each category, how your ingredients sync across other apps from the same developer (the "Easy Cocktails" app, Wondrich's app, etc), and how it's easy to see recipes for which you are missing only one or two ingredients. The only feedback I would provide is it would be nice to have the ability to rate each cocktail for personal preference (I don't care to see others' ratings though). Also, the ability to add ingredients to a Wish List or Shopping List would be beneficial. Now if we can only get an app for other books too, like Speakeasy, Death & Co, any of Dale DeGroff's books, etc. One final note, if you find these recipes too complicated, or requiring too many obscure or homemade ingredients, try the Easy Cocktails app from the same developer. Keep in mind, PDT is a world-class cocktail bar that pushed the envelope. You can't reasonably expect the casual home bar to have all these ingredients on hand, or the casual home bartender to have the desire to seek out all the ingredients. Just because you buy "The French Laundry" or "El Bulli" cookbooks doesn't mean you're going to be cooking like Keller or Adrià at home any time soon. Check your expectations..Version: 1.1.3

It’s a great app but it’s missing some key features for a home barI haven’t been to PDT the speakeasy, but I assume everything on the app is pretty much what is offered. And I can understand that is part of a branding thing. And I love so many of the cocktail recipes. But an app for the home bartender needs to allow people to edit the recipes, add their own recipes, and add their own ingredients. I can understand if y’all wanna make another app for this sort of thing though..Version: 1.2.7

Fantastic. The BEST cocktail app.Ok to start with, I have a PDT cocktail book so let's set aside the fact that I knew I'd love the recipe content. This is a fantastic effing app. Entering the contents of my home bar was a matter of switching toggles and, when done, I found that I could make 207 of 400 cocktails. I could quickly make a few infusions and syrups per the included recipes and up that number. I LOVE that the recipes tell me what my substitutions would be. It's so clever to show me a list of recipes that I'm 1 or 2 ingredients away from making. Often the missing ingredient is something easy to acquire like orange juice or raspberry jam or something I sub in. Normally I balk at paying over $1.99 for an app but this is my favorite new app and worth every bit of the price. I'm so glad I bought it. I guarantee that, much as I love my cocktail books, I will use this app more frequently than my library of books. Well done PDT!.Version: 1.1.3

GreatAlways loved the PDT book and this is perfect because it lists what you can make with the ingredients you have. Well done!.Version: 1.0

Awesome drinks recipe appThis app includes all of the recipes of the PDT book, plus more, and continues to receive periodic updates from time to time, so at $9.99 this app is really a great deal compared to the book version. In addition to the sheer number of recipes available, you get all of the unmatched functionality and features of the MixologyTech suite of apps. The most important functionality is the inventory feature, which lets you enter your inventory on hand in the app. It then shows you which recipes you can make with your ingredients. With each ingredient an explanation is given of what it is, and all ingredients are provided as links so you can pick an ingredient in a recipe for example and then see which other recipes call for that ingredient. Substitutions are recommended for like ingredients when you are missing a specific ingredient but have a good alternative on hand. That's a particularly important feature in this app since recipes call for specific brands of spirits, and if you don't have that brand on hand another will be recommended as a substitute. A sync feature that takes about 30 seconds to set up will sync all of your ingredients across all seven MixologyTech apps and across multiple devices. This is particularly handy if you use the app both on an iPhone and iPad. It also means that any time you delete and reinstall one of the apps you can just set up the sync again and all of your ingredients are repopulated immediately. Favorites and flags make it easy to find your stand by drinks and drinks you've been meaning to try. You can make custom lists of recipes and journal notes on each recipe, which is helpful if you want to make a drink again but it was just a little too sweet, not sweet enough, too strong, etc. Recipes can be searched and filtered by various criteria including base spirit, method of preparation, drink type, provenance, and more. Another great feature, if like me you're always looking to expand the inventory and possibilities of your home bar, is the recommendation of ingredients to acquire. Near the bottom of the home screen you'll see a count of your ingredients, and what percentage of recipes you can make from the app. It then recommends the next ingredients that would most increase the number of drinks you'd be able to make if you added them to your inventory. This app provides a great all around group of cocktail recipes made to the high standards of one of the top cocktail bars in the world. For something a little more geared towards beginners I'd recommend the Shaken & Stirred app, and for the more serious cocktail übernerd I'd recommend Martin's Index of Cocktails which includes an exhaustive list of recipes from the mid nineteenth through mid twentieth century..Version: 1.2.3

Been waiting a year for thisAwesome to have PDT recipes on my phone! It's missing a couple of my favorites from the book, but does have some additional recipes. The entire family of cocktail apps from this company are fantastic, I look forward to seeing them updated..Version: 1.0

Great appGreat app, worth the money. The list of ingredients is amazing. Only 4 stars though because there is no option to add custom cocktails or missing classics..Version: 1.2.6

Close to perfectionEvery time I think this app can't get any better, you go and make it better. The *only* thing this app was missing was a way to take notes on drinks I've made. Now it has that. Love the creative recipes, love the inventory features. Favorite cocktail app..Version: 1.2

The best cocktail appThis is what I've been missing from my bar. Having loved the PDT book for years this is the perfect replacement. Load up your ingredients into the app and it tells you what cocktails you can make including substations for certain ingredients..Version: 1.1.3

Game-chaning app, great developer supportWhen I was in college I had a dream to make my friends any drink they wanted and drive a flying car. This was a fantasy, not the least of reasons because organizing a bar is difficult, and because flying cars do not exist. However, this app has allowed me to realize the dream in the most convenient way imaginable. This app makes the connections behind the recipes for you, helps you pick most useful things to buy, manage your inventory. Simply log your bar inventory. It then knows what you can make, what you cannot make, and helps you figure out 'spirits of opportunity' to discover what to buy next to optimize the number of drinks you can make. It shows you which you are one or two ingredients away from making. Did I mention it does all that while featuring an incredible collection of well-curated recipes? It does that. I have not mixed a drink I did not enjoy. The developer supports the app like no other. I have never found such a kind, considerate, communicative developer who was so truly interested in understanding and assisting in supporting the app, despite the fact that I was running an older release of iOS. Some reviewers complain about the price. They are fools. For twice the price considering the curation, more efficient ingredient purchases because of the app's analytics, and the curation, this app is a bargain. The money I save in purcahses alone because the app optimizes those ingredients with which I can make the most drinks (I can discern and choose based on my individual taste from the sample it recommends). Then consider the curation: you are getting an almost mechanically intelligent version of a book that costs with shipping approximately $20. To this, add that you get great support and you carry the information everywhere because the developer has made it an app..Version: 1.2.1

Unlocked my mixing brain.I had been in a cocktail rut, just making the same things because I couldn’t find new ways to combine what I had and I couldn’t go by every bottle in the store. These apps opened up my cabinet to literally—yes, literally—hundreds of new possibilities. The interface is as brilliant and elegant and classy as a Vieux Carré. Do it. You’ll love it..Version: 1.2.6

Solid. Great UI.I've got about 100-150 different cocktail ingredients at home, but sometimes I struggle with creative ways to combine them. You add your inventory of ingredients and it easily guides you to cocktails you can make either entirely or partially. A great resource for a home bartender. My wife has also taken a liking to it since I'm not always home, yet she would still like to be able to make drinks for herself based on what's in the cabinet..Version: 1.0

Much better than the bookEvery cocktail lover should have the PDT book (aka the Bible), but they should only pull it out to read or flip through while relaxing on the couch (hopefully with a perfectly balanced cocktail). For all other occasions, just pull out the app and find exactly what you're looking for much faster. The design of this suite of apps is perfectly suited to the at-home cocktail enthusiast. Input your ingredients once, sync to all other apps (easily authenticating via 1Password support), flag recipes, and drink lovely cocktails. I'm a particular fan of flagging recipes I want to try because the list of flagged recipes shows you results from all installed apps in the suite. Very easy to find a good one to try (likewise with favorites)..Version: 1.2.3
