With Christmas and New Years freshly over, I think it is safe to say that many Americans consumed their fair share of alcohol. I can say for sure that I am one of them.

While walking around the liqour store with friends, we kept asking each other, “what do we want to drink?” After several empty handed trips around the store, I pulled out my phone and downloaded the Bartender app. I then quickly scrolled through the hundreds of drinks.

Playing with the app, I quickly saw that you could narrow down your mixed drink search by ingredients, ratings, or by alphabetical order. We then grabbed a few bottles of our favorite alcohol, and decided we could come up with tons of great concoctions to try.

Admittedly, I have not heard of a fraction of the hundreds of drinks listed on the Bartender app. That’s not to say I didn’t try to familiarize myself with a few on New Year’s eve. After scrolling through several times, I could see that many of the basic drinks are listed, though I am sure there are some that have been left out. I really liked the fact that you could create a favorites list, because honesty after a few drinks I really don’t remember what I was drinking.

After using this app several times, I have never experienced a force close. Bartender has always opened and functioned very quickly and smoothly. I don’t care for the fact that there are ads on the bottom of the page, but that is to be expected with most free apps. No perfect, but a great, quick, reference that is pretty well organized. After a few drinks, does it really matter that much anyways?
