"The gold medal winner of our best drinking apps battle…" —Gizmodo.com

The #1 cocktail recipe app for the iPhone has received a much-anticipated upgrade, just in time for the holidays. Whether you’re a bartender or a bar-goer, Mixology™ helps you lookup your favorite drink recipes and discover new ones.
Over the past three years, fans and critics alike have written reviews about Mixology™ Drink Recipes, asking its developers to improve some aspects of the app, such as the Liquor Cabinet, Browse By Ingredient, and Find Liquor Stores & Bars features.
The new & improved Liquor Cabinet feature allows for expanding and collapsing of ingredient categories and the selection of individual ingredients, rather than just broad ingredient categories, which creates more fine-tuned cocktail search results.
The Browse By Ingredient feature was completely revamped with the ability to browse by multiple ingredients—instead of just browsing by one ingredient at a time. As more ingredients are added to the search criteria, the list of remaining options to consider shrinks so that only compatible ingredients are presented. Another improvement allows both general ingredients and specific brand names to be selected. For example, selecting a general ingredient like Vodka will include all brand names of vodka in the search results.
The Find Liquor Store & Bars feature is much more powerful in Mixology™ 3.0. New location pins are dropped as the map is moved. A search bar has also been added for searching other locations, not just what's nearby.
Mixology™ 3.0 is much more interactive than its predecessors, letting its users rate and comment on each recipe, with the option of sharing recipes and comments on Facebook. In addition to sharing recipes with friends via email, Facebook, and Twitter, sharing via SMS text messages is now an option. The top rated drinks from all users, across multiple platforms, is updated every 30 minutes and may be accessed from the Home tab.
Other improvements include a new layout, improved searching, cocktail photos, and new recipe categories.
Mixology™ is a free iOS app that’s ad-supported.
For $0.99, you can buy the paid version, Mixologist™, which is ad-free and has more bells and whistles, including the ability to add custom cocktail creations to the database.
