Cool & Creative.

Very inventive, I don’t need the other apps I downloaded to test out - this will do fine.
This app gives you all the freedom in the world to stock, learn, create and explore. It’s digital theme, sound effects and the ability to customize not only your digital bar but the little things like the font style, sound, and even the apps color options add a great touch - the little things add up. A great amount info and overall style, I love how we can build a collection of our own creations.
I really don’t drink much, but it’s very interesting to try new drinks and experiment here and there ...wether we’re good at that or not. Doesn't stop me from taste testing. The app makes it more fun.
And lastly this app was free but I see myself visiting their Mixel Shop soon to see what other ingredients are out there.

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!!

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.
