The Perfect Drink app has a much better design, especially on tablets. First, you'll want to fill your "Cabinet," a feature that tells the app all of the ingredients you have at your disposal.

Pick your poison

From there, the app can organize different drink recipes from its database by category, or by the ingredients you have on hand. Pick your concoction of choice, or try something new.
