Like many of us I have the Tiki+ app, but I'd like to get suggestions for a classic cocktail app, to fill in the gaps, so to speak. Unfortunately the flipside of Tiki+ (Cocktail+), is unavailable in the States. Thanks in advance!

What's the deal with Cocktails+?? I bought the the app several years ago when I first got Tiki+ and it is great. Hundreds of classic cocktails, multiple versions from different eras and different authors and bartenders, etc. The app had gone wonky on my phone and I deleted it intending to re-download it only to find out it is no longer available even though I have previously purchased it. I still have it on my iPad and it is still the best classic cocktails app I have used.

This sounds like an opportunity for someone out there to resurrect an old product, or to develop (and maintain!) another product. Even Tiki+ would benefit from an update given all the new research Jeff Berry has done since the original app was released. But maybe these apps don't earn the publishers enough revenue to keep them updated?

I still rely on a pretty large selection of cocktail books at home. Books can be relatively cumbersome and time-consuming when you're researching something - there is something to be said in favor of propping up an electronic device while you are trying to look stuff up while also working at your bar.

Hell I'd just love an Android version of Tiki+.

I use Mixology a bit. It is free and decent.

Thanks for the tip - Mixology it is, for the moment anyways.

I have a cocktail/bar inventory app that does 10x what the other apps there do. I'm looking for beta testers. It runs on Android/desktop right now with an iPhone/iPad version by the end of the year (hopefully). Contact me if you are interested.

I thought I would resurrect this thread because a friend of mine and fellow Disney fan just showed me an awesome cocktail app. It is called Highball (iTunes link). The reason I love it is because you can share drinks so easily. The app generates a QR code so if you want to share something on Facebook or Twitter or something, all someone has to do to get the full recipe is scan the code in the app. Plus, you can customize the image of the drink yourself. Here is one that my friend made from a Disney recipe:

Pretty neat, though that recipe is horrendous.

Cocktails in the Disney parks are either horrendous or surprisingly great. There is no middle ground. I just thought people should know about the app.

(My comment excludes Trader Sams's of course in that I said "in" a park, not the hotels.)

Tiki+ is no longer updated, sold, or supported. It has been replaced by Total Tiki and the publisher is Doudoroff LLC. They currently sell and support at least five apps:

Beachbum Berry's Total Tiki.
PDT Cocktails.
Martin's Index of Cocktails.
Bar Ingredients.
Gaz Regan's 101 Best New Cocktails.

Subscribe to the non-tiki ones only if you want to have your mind blown by a myriad of influences from top bartenders around the world. You must also have big $$$ to build more shelves and stock them with esoteric spirits. But you'll have a blast doing it even though you'll have to sell everything you own.

Remember that each of these apps will also be retired in the future (just like Tiki+) when the world switches to newer Warp Core processors which allow mobile computing at speeds where electrons are allowed to exceed the speed of light.

I have used the Total Tiki app since shortly after it first came out and love it but there are times its focus on tiki drinks does show limitations.
Anyone else who has it not been able to get it working the last week or two? Ever since the last update mine just crashes whenever I try to open it. Or is it just me?

Total Tiki would be a perfect app if only you could annotate and add your own recipes.

I think that's a good idea. My workaround is to have a handful of cocktail recipes saved in my phone in the "notes" area. This, at least, allows me to keep them portable and also email or text my special recipes.

I still just have Tiki+. Is there any real reason to spend $10 more on the Tiki Total app? Does anyone have both or know what the differences are?
