I have been bartending for years so I know the power of having an arsenal of crazy cool cocktails at your disposal come holidays, parties or friendly get together. It seems that I'm always the one left answering "what can we make with this" time after time. You too can share in the glory of being in the cocktail know just by having the right app on your BlackBerry.

Nice. I downloaded the Bartenders Bible the other day. Great collection of cocktail recipes. I'll check out the others. Thanks! :-)

Sent from my sexy white hot Z10 in Sin City ;-)

Thanks for the article, I bought but I didn't know there was a Bartenders Bible available. In my bartending days (pre-Katrina) there was a book called Coast's Cocktails that was a standard along the MS/AL coast. I wore that book out and I hope they put an app up for it.

Thanks for the write up, Adam. Not much of a drinker but always wanted to learn mixology. In your opinion, what's the best way to learn? Are the online courses worth it?

Posted via CB10 on my white Z10 & lovin' it!

Nice article. Didn't even know apps like these were available. Sweet.

Any bartenders here that care to rate the BB10 apps? I noticed that the Bible one for BBOS got some bad reviews including one from a bartender. The BB10 apps don't have many reviews at all.

So you were the one who answered the ad "Blackberry enthusiast needed to assist and blog for CrackBerry. Must be available for international travel, extended time away from home. Bartending skills required. Ask for Kevin."

Working in a cocktail bar means I get a lot of random requests for drinks I've never heard of(or some I've heard of buy never actually made), so these will definitely come in handy. Glad they are on bb10. Probably gonna download them all.

Do any of these apps allow you to enter in a list of liquors and mixes that you have at home, and provide back a list of drinks you can make with them? I've been wondering if something like this exists...
