I’d like to start by saying that this is a well-designed app, and it allows you to visualize your liquor/mixers/etc. all at a glance. My biggest concern at the moment is that there are simply not enough recipes included yet. I’ve bought the $9.99 package with hopes that I’d find many cocktail recipes. I realize that more will likely be added, but it’s annoying to know that I have over a dozen liquors and only four recipes show up as possibilities. There are a lot of widely known cocktails that aren’t included, and that’s disappointing to see.

On the plus side, the quality of the recipes seems to be good from what I’ve seen so far. The descriptions are also nice to have as well. I’m hopeful that the recipe selection will expand soon.

You should be seeing way more recipes than that. The premium pack has over 1000 and should have almost all the widely known ones. Maybe you have some filters enabled, or your phone didn't download them like it should have. Try restarting the app, and keep us updated. Thanks for your comments and let us know if there are some recipes we should add!

I want to love this app, but I hate it, but I still use it


The functionality is great, but please use modern graphics. The novelty of the 8-bit digital wears off in about 23 milliseconds. This app hurts my eyes. I love the functionality, but I hate looking at this app. The moment another app comes out that duplicates this functionality (as well as depth of recipe database), I will drop Mixel and move to something that doesn’t cause me to lose my vision. In the mean time, I’m begrudgingly using Mixel.

Edit: Per the developer’s recommendation, I tried out Lush cocktails on the App Store. The recommendation was spot on as Lush is a much better executed app. It sounds like Mixel made a poor design choice early on and now they are stuck with it. Either way, I’m getting great cocktail recipes from Lush and it doesn’t hurt my eyes to look at!!

Developer Response

Thanks for the review! Glad you hear you like the functionality, although specifically the art style is one we settled on early and simply isn’t something we can change I apologize. We are actually quite happy with it, but I understand it’s not for everyone. I would recommend Lush Cocktails if you need another cocktail app to provide recipes, very solid work they’ve done. Cheers!

Well Designed, Fun, and Helpful!


Whether you only need to consult the app for an eggnog recipe once a year at the holidays, or you need an everyday companion, this app is perfect.

What if I told you that there was a way to tell you phone what is in your Bar and refrigerator, and it would store that information and show you drinks you can make currently, as well as drinks you might be able to make with a few more ingredients? Until Mixel, there wasn’t an elegant solution.

Mixel takes old school art and mixes it with helpful information to take you from a regular guy or gal to a top notch at-home (or full-time) bartender.
