I received the Perfect Drink® in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Holiday gatherings or casual nights at home sometimes call for drinks. I know very little about drinks or their composition. I know I like adult drinks. I really like frozen, tropical drinks. I’m getting savvier and experiencing drinks like never before thanks to Perfect Drink®.
It might be the best app on my phone! Perfect Drink® and Perfect Drink® App (downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play) turn me into a professional bartender.
I can go from the ho-hum, “let’s order pizza,” and I’ll serve beer to the hostess taking drink orders and serving more grown-up food.
There is no second-guessing.
No trying to remember if it’s 1:4.
No trying to manage multiple alcohols or trying to remember if it’s rum or tequila.
The Perfect Drink® with the Perfect Drink® App does all the hard work.
You just have to pour.
I found the scale and app easy to use.
I downloaded the Perfect Drink® App to my iPhone and connected it to the Perfect Drink® “smart” scale.
I do wish the scale had a backlit display–or a longer cord, so my phone wasn’t right in the mix, but once the fun started, I lost interest in the negatives of these because it’s awesome!
The Perfect Drink® Scale comes with the scale as well as a 750ml stainless steel drink shaker.
Perfect Drink® includes:
Stainless steel cocktail shaker
Free interactive recipe app
More than 300 recipes (and more to come)
I watched the demonstration and then tried it myself. The app tells you everything–including what type of glass to use.
There’s a large selection of drink recipes.
Watch as I make my first Tequila Sunrise:
I placed the glass on the scale and started the app. It calibrates the weight of the glass. Then I poured in each ingredient while viewing its weight “fill” up a virtual glass on my iPhone’s screen.
Once the liquid reached the fill line, it beeps and signals for me to move to the next ingredient.
Remember it’s a computer and therefore, it’s smart.
If you over-pour the ingredients, the app will readjust the measurements and show you how to correct for it.
There is a “cabinet” in the app where you can tell the app what liquor and mixers you have on hand.
It can then show you what can be made using what you have.
There are small blue bars under the recipes that show how much of the ingredients you have to make the drink….click on the recipe and the items in your “cabinet” are check-marked so you know what you need.
The Perfect Drink® and Perfect Drink® App are my new obsession.
This weekend I have used it to make three Ensenada Coladas, three Rum and Coke, a Mai Tai, Tequila Sunrise, and Alabama Slammer.
I’d have kept going, but all things in moderation.
The Perfect Drink® App-Controlled Smart Bartending is the perfect gift for those who want a drink that looks and tastes as it should.
It’s available does what it has to in order to make a drink that both looks and tastes correct.
Take $49.99, add a mobile device, and you can say “Cheers” with the best of them.
