Customer Reviews

Efficient and essential simulation

This game is an amazing simulation game for bartending training. Because it was fun, a challenge, and put slight pressure on me with a time limit for making the drinks I had a lot of the recipes drilled into my mind in such a short amount of time. The game will truly help you with learning these recipes if you practice a little bit from the recipe book each day and take shots at the survival mode.

Hands Down the BEST bar simulator available!!!

I have received a bartender's license before purchasing the game and I have to say it is the next best thing to mixing actual drinks. It also gave me a greater understanding of certain drinks and helped me memorize many recipes that I had trouble with. Definately a must have app for every bartender out there!

Good game, but glitchy

This is a great game to practice how to recall recipes and make drinks BUT it needs to be longer and have more recipes added. Also the recipes have to be corrected. There are a few glitches such as the "Bee's Knee's" drink calling for lime juice when it should be lemon juice and the "scotch fizz" calling for rum when it should be scotch. etc
