Whether you serve drinks for a living, daiquiris for friends, or just want a delicious martini at the end of a hard day, the perfect spirit is only an app away. Fill in the information below, and you’ll be entered to win one of two free downloads of the Mr. Boston Official Bartender’s Guide for iPhone and iPod Touch, courtesy of Wiley.
Mr. Boston is the go-to resource for professional mix masters everywhere, but it’s just as good (maybe even better) for personal entertaining. Created by top bartenders around the country and compiled by the trusted experts at Mr. Boston, this new app makes cocktail knowledge and inspiration portable, interactive, and fun. The app features:
- Full library of 1,400 expert-tested Mr. Boston recipes
- Bar Basics section covering essential techniques, equipment, and ingredients
- Powerful search capabilities, allowing easy retrieval of cocktails by name or ingredient
- Categories such as Classic Cocktails, Shooters, Frozen Drinks, Eggnogs and Punches, and more
- Customization features, such as a Favorites folder and the ability to add personal notes and photos
- Pop-up illustrations of must-have equipment and glassware, with links to online sources
- Measurement conversions (U.S. to metric)
- Ability to share your favorite recipes with friends or colleagues
And if cocktail-party math intimidates you, the Mr. Boston app has a solution for that, too. Use the interactive spinner wheels to input the number of guests, type of function (dinner, cocktails, etc.), and other factors, and the app does the rest, estimating how many drinks you’ll need and how many bottles to buy for any type of event. Problem solved. Cheers!
