Toronto, Canada – With Halloween season approaching, and a myriad of mixology apps available, digital nomad Jones APR thinks its fine time to spotlight a few choice cocktail apps designed to bring out the ghoul in your guests.
Pocket Cocktails – (iPhone/Android)
Pictures ARE worth a thousand words, and Pocket Cocktails has got boatloads of them, in fact every cocktail in this app has an accompanying photo. So when preparing a Bloody Brain or Eyeball Martini there’s a handy pic to help illustrate what the drink should look as its prepared. The Random Mode turns the phone into a shaker complete with sound effects, a great conversation starter. (99 cents, iTunes/Android Market)
Cocktails HD (iPad)
Hosting a big party? The bold, beautiful Cocktails HD is your ticket. Taking full advantage of the iPad’s giant display area, Cocktails HD delivers with mouth watering drink images and recipes along with everything needed to make your soiree a night to remember. Cocktails HD also includes a full bartending guide detailing how to prepare and garnish the libations. The latest update has 20 new high def Halloween recipes including the Bayou Slime, Draculade and if you dare, the Bloody-Tini ($2.99, iTunes)
Cocktails Deeva (iPhone)
Halloween out with the girlfriends? Dee Brun’s Cocktail Deeva is a fun app that’s one part mixologist and one part humorist. Combining cocktail recipes with hilarious and sometimes outrageous themes (i.e. The Don’t Let me go Home with him Daiquiri and & I Always Get the Ugly Friend Shooter), A night out with the girlies can be lifted to epic status with the irreverent Brun’s signature cocktail humor. This app is definitely “ladies only” ($1.99, iTunes)
