I made a drink database I did that for a luau we had for the holidays. It's in filemaker pro 7 therefore you need filemaker 7 or 8 to open it. The database is good for any platform (as long as you have the application).

Everything is straight forward, how to enter a new drink, how to manage your inventory, if you click on recipes it will give you drinks you can do with what you actually have in your bar inventory. If you click a Tiki God anywhere in the database you will get a random recipe.

I am supplying you the database I did as is. I am willing to answer any questions about it I am not sure I can find the time to make changes if there are requested but I can try.

I hope you enjoy it.

here's a screenshot of the recipe page

If you don't have filemaker but still want to check it our you can have a 30 days trial of filemaker

edit: added filemaker trial link
edit2: added the zip file

The only reason I could not make it for version earlier than 7 it's really because they are really 3 differents databases with portals, and since 7 you can all make them into one single filemaker file (which is easier to manage honestly).

I used shag images from book I bought to make the database "tikier". Thanks for the layout compliment I hope some people will find it useful.

I agree, that databse looks great.

I also have made a Filemaker Pro database to keep track of all my drink recpies, but you can't download the entire thing because it it too big (I store a picture of each drink so the database is huge).

I use my database to get all the drinks I like from all my barguides and scraps of paper. It organizes them and outputs them as a tiki bar barguide, which is just a printout of the database in a barguide format, with a cover that I made.

Here is a PDF file of my Tiki bar guide
Bar Guide Cover and Bar Guide Pages for you to check out.

My data base has some extra features too. I have a listing of my bar inventory in one field, when you look at the drink recipie a check box next to each ingrediant tells you if you have it in your bar or not. If not, you can click another button and add it to your shopping list. You can also print the inventory and/or shopping lists also. Here is a screenshot of my database's main screen: Click here

If you would like a copy of the entire database I will send it to you on a CD-ROM if you PayPal me $1 to cover postage.

Great idea marika!
It seems that there is a problem with your link to the dbase file... I tried opening it and FM tells me its damaged. Do you think you could .zip it so it can be downloaded as an archive?
Aloha,
