Editors' review

The trial version of this promising bartender's guide features 100 cocktails that range from the refreshing Cuba Libre to the creamy Grasshopper. Kalua Cocktails classifies drinks by category (longdrink, cooler) and flavor (fruity, strong). The cocktail assistant asks you what kind of event, drink, and alcohol content you want, but the results are restricted. You can search by flavor, but once you try to search by category, which is trial-restricted, you'll have to restart the program to reactivate flavor searches.

The Barman's Dictionary defines all the ingredients and equipment, adding helpful suggestions about the garnishes. The program can calculate the quantities of each ingredient you'll need to make any amount of the selected drink. The BAC Assistant estimates blood alcohol level based on the number of specific drinks, your weight, and the time elapsed; the trial version will run it once.

The interface lets you change color schemes and mute the loud music. You can print preview, but not print. Some of the ingredients are too specific (Bailey's Irish Cream), while some are too generic (Vodka, Bourbon), and we longed for a way to add ingredients. Despite the restrictions, bon vivants and merry hostesses will appreciate Kalua Cocktails.

    Version: Kalua Cocktails 1.23

    Summary

    Would like to see mills measurment as well as oz but i can work with oz. Appart from that its great. I can edit recipies to suit my prefrences, rate them, add drinks that arnt listed like frangelico, add my own cocktails.... theres heaps. I've spent like 10 minutes going through it and feel like i know it front to back, its sooo easy to use and anything that might not seam obvious at first is spelt out in the help files. Very happy with this :)

    Summary

    Amazing. I never gave any comments on Download.com but I could not stop myself when I downloaded Kalua Cocktail 1.1. It is like a Bartender sittining besides you for 24/7.
    We have many folkd who don't go to bars and like to drink alone or in the company of limited number of people, they can benifit themselves with this great software.
    I future it must provide some products link so people like me can buy the ingredients from easily.
