There are plenty of apps that tell you how to mix drinks, but none that do it quite as stylishly as What Cocktail?
What is it?
What Cocktail?, $2, iPhone. A handsome app that lets you tap in a few variables—what mood you're in; what hemisphere you're in—and spits out a drink suggestion. Then it gives you directions on how to make one. That way, the app's to blame for your hangover, not you.
Who's it good for?
Why's it better than alternatives?
It's nicely designed enough that you can pull it out at the bar without feeling like a dweeb.
How could it be even better?
It'd be nice if you could just browse the drinks from a list instead of getting a random one each time. And though it is nicely designed, $2 is maybe one dollar too many?
We're always looking for cool apps—for iOS, Android, Windows Phone or whatever else—to feature as App of the Day. If you come across one you think we should take a look at, please let us know.
