    A great collection of many of the most classic tiki drinks of the mid century, uncovered and rediscovered by the preeminent tiki cocktail authority, Jeff "Beachbum" Berry. This app includes all of the best recipes from at least four of Berry's books, so at $9.99 this app is really a great deal. In addition to the wealth of tiki drink 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, a particularly useful feature on this app, which can be a little overwhelming if you just start scrolling through the recipes alphabetically. 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. 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 favorite drinks and drinks you've been meaning to try. You can make custom lists of recipes and journal notes on each recipe, which is particularly helpful in this app as some of the vintage recipes will require a bit of tweaking to the modern pallet, and you'll want to notate those changes for future use. 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. There are some truly magnificent drinks included. My personal favorite is the Jet Pilot from Steve Crane of the Luau in Beverly Hills. Be sure to try that one. It's unique in its complex flavor profile, and always gets the job done. Links for much further reading on both tiki drinks as well as tiki style are included, as well as sources for barware, bar tools, and many of the specialized tiki drinkware which Beachbum Berry has partnered with Cocktail Kingdom on to bring back to life. I am having a hard time imagining how this app could be improved upon, unless it could also mix the drink for me, but then where would be the fun in that?

    Thank you to Jeff Berry for doing the legwork for those of us that love these "tiki" drinks! This app has all the genuine original recipes for most of the worlds best drinks. Love the fact you can add your own notes. Especially love the option to have separate lists for different occasions/parties/etc... Thanks again Jeff!!!

    One of the most expensive apps I've bought but worth every penny. Has every feature I've wanted, all in a beautiful interface with tons of info. Intelligent ingredient substitutes, categories, photos. A polished app.

    $10 is worth it! All of BBB's knowledge in one app. Photos and histories for EVERY drink. You can list your "inventory" and it will list which drinks you can make. Also it will actively sub in what you have, for what you dont. Even more handy, it gives you a "bio" for many of the ingredients and which you should buy and why. Much of the stuff in stores today is fake mass produced stuff without quality. This app will steer you towards the tried and true to stock your bar. Effing brilliant!

    This app would be a bargain at twice the price. Having the ability to reference Jeff Berry's recipes at any time - in the home bar or on the go - is a luxury. Great features for filtering, searching, and syncing, as well as keeping track of your ingredient inventory. Highly recommended.
  • Simply awesome.

  • Best all-around tiki drink app

    Not only a great drink recipe app, but also a tremendous resource of historical information. You can put in the drink ingredients you have on hand, and the app will tell you what you can make. For recipes, the app will show variations and the year the drink was invented. Clicking on an ingredient (like a type of rum) pulls up a database providing a little information about the ingredient, and some examples of the ingredient. Makes it very easy to enjoy high-quality recipes and to help stock your home bar.

  • Important feature missing!

    I love anything that Jeff Berry publishes, this app included. It's very well designed and I love the updated ingredient/brand recommendations. One important feature missing from this version is a "notes" feature. Jeff Berry's previous app (Tiki +) allowed me to make notes underneath a recipe just as I would do in a real book. If this feature returns, I'd would be an indispensable app.
  • The best!

    The ability to maintain your bar ingredients makes this so, so convenient. Also the ingredient suggestions and detailed info on some drinks really helps you understand the origins behind some of these excellent cocktails. Highly recommended alongside their other cocktail app.
