"The magic of Top Shelf is that it thinks the way most of us do."

"Top Shelf should win a prize for the most refined cocktail application for the iPhone and iPod touch."


If you like to mix cocktails (or you want to order something more interesting than a gin and tonic), you just found yourself one fine reference tool. Top Shelf features thousands of amazingly high quality drink recipes. Whether youre a professional bartender or amateur mixologist, youll find everything you need in one lightning-fast, super-polished app.



Top Shelf includes thousands of carefully selected and edited recipes, ranging from classic cocktails to popular contemporary shooters. There are no filler recipes that youd never want to drink.

All of the recipes have been organized into handy categories. Feeling nostalgic? Top Shelf has all the classics. On a mission? Top Shelf has hundreds of shots and shooters. There are even several flaming drinks for the daredevils.

This innovative feature allows you to maintain a list of spirits (and mixers) you have and shows you what you can make with them.

All of the included recipes are completely editable, and you can add all of your own concoctions. If you just want to leave yourself a note, theres a place for that too.

Find any drink by name, either within a specific category or across the whole database. Browse combinations of ingredients using a fun and intuitive drill-down interface.

When you find a recipe you like, mark it as a favorite for easy future access or email it to your friends.

Feeling indecisive? Let Top Shelf pick a random recipe for you. You can get a random drink from the entire database, a specific category, your favorites, search results, or the liquor cabinet.

Top Shelf will try to auto-detect whether you pour in ounces or centiliters, but you can always specify your preference in the iPhone Settings application.

Top Shelf is designed from top to bottom to be beautiful, usable, and snappy. Since the recipes are stored on your device, you dont have to wait for anything to download from the Internet, and there are no ads to get in your way.

Pros and cons of Top Shelf Drinks app for iPhone and iPad

Top Shelf Drinks app good for

die a ist wirklich gut, auch mit der favoriten-funktion. wenn man viele trinkt und ausprobiert wird es aber unübersichtlich, daher wäre es toll wenn man cocktails auf eine art vormerken liste einfügen könnte und getrunkene cocktails bewerten(zb skala 1-10) könnte! ich freu mich auf ein update. very good app but some ideas to improve this app, a list with drinks i wanna drink in the future would be nice, and also the possibility to rate the cocktails is important for a better handling
Nice big database with everything I knew and did not know! :) This app will help the party bartender in me! ;) A feature that could be cool in a next version would be to be able to search with multiple ingredients, just like, I have Vodka and Rhum, what can I do with both? Or only this as my alcohol? And maybe a "calculator" if we want to make more than one drink in a shaker.
Well thought out interface that is both easy to use and powerful. Ill never be left thinking of what to order again!
Great app easy to use, simple drinks to make for my next party... But I didnt find my favorite drinks (2) .. Theres the app COCKTAIL with more specials drink that r taken from books.. I have both of them and Ill keep both for different occation
Its a very nice app, but i would like to be abble to learn about the ingredient when i click on, cause some are mysterious to me.
Really good app. I like the "Snow Drop" -- You change the unit of measure settings throught the Iphone / Itouch settings menu, it is NOT in the actual app.

Some bad moments

Nice work!! But still waiting for the update and see if youll add some more fruit liqueurs on the list...lots missing... Keep doing good work and you will get 5 star
Some crashes Several ingredients missing Probably one of the best app atm. For bartenders more than mixologists
Im dissapointed that it did not have recepie to various shooters nor sangarias. Even some newer drinks are not available. Big database but kinda basic.
This is a great app and Ive used it many times... but unfortunately, since Ive updated to iOS4, it stopped working. The program loads, but as soon as I try to do something (i.e. pick an ingredient), it crashes. This is just wrong for a paid app! Please keep your software updated.
Aug 14, 2015 The age of the app is showing. Unfortunately it seems to have been abandoned. Multiple attempt to contact the developer have gone unanswered. It would be best to avoid this app until it is resuscitated. Dec 30, 2013 I have tried several drink recipe apps and this is by far the most versatile and easy to use. The cabinet feature alone is fantastic. No app has ALL the recipes out there, but this one has LOTS, plus you can easily add those that arent in there.
Missing popular drinks. Outdated. Interface looks old. Would not recommend.
