There is a great new iOS cocktail app out there, Craft Cocktail. It is free and being released in chapters. The first chapter is available now and rumor has it that the second one will be ready any day. There are a lot of cocktail apps out there, what makes this one so special?
First up, the gorgeous photography. Doesn't it make you want to reach out and lift that glass to your lips?
The drinks are new, not your run of the mill Screwdrivers or Side Cars.
But it is the page layout and companion information that really stand out here.
Click on the "concept" and get an idea of where the drink came from as well as a fun, appropriate quote. For the Thyme Lord cocktail it is only right that the quote should be from Doctor Who.
This section also contqins Grimoire. Grimoire is all about the latin names, medicinal qualities, and any folklore about a specific botanical ingredient.
The recipe button gives you a very well written, easy to understand recipe.
Maybe you are not familiar with some of the ingredients used? Click on the bottle icon and have them explained.
If there is an ingredient that you need to make yourself, such as the Thyme Syrup, a click on the leaf will provide instructions.
Beautiful and inspiring. Full of great information. Not just a smaller version of what you can do on a webpage. This is what an app is suppose to be.
