Barkeeper takes the guesswork out of making cocktails at home. Save your favorite recipes and track the alcohol and other ingredients you have on hand. When you’re ready to make some cocktails, Barkeeper will tell you which cocktails you can make with what you have on hand, and tell you which ingredients you're missing and let you save them to your shopping list. Click 'make', and your inventory is updated to reflect the amount of each ingredient you just used.
