Mix delicious drinks using your mobile device
The Perfect Drink combines an instructive app (a free download) with an intelligent scale to help you pour the perfect mixed drink.
Simply connect the cable from the scale to your mobile device's headphone jack, launch the app, and commence bartending like a pro!
Perfectly proportioned drinks every time!
"A splash of this, a splash of that" may go unnoticed by someone already inebriated. But we sincerely doubt your awesome friends will appreciate that lazy swirl of gut rot at your next party.
With The Perfect Drink, you can effortlessly pour perfectly mixed drinks. As you pour, the app's virtual glass fills up in real time and dings to tell you when to stop. It automatically moves to the next ingredient or action (such as shaking and straining) all the while providing helpful and instructive bartending tips.
High quality scale = smart bartending
Just like baking, mixing cocktails requires precise measurements of each ingredient.
To ensure great-tasting libations, The Perfect Drink includes a highly accurate scale with 1 gram precision. The included app reads those measurements 30 times per second for a real-time display of your pour.
Furthermore, The Perfect Drink knows the densities of every ingredient so as to ensure just-right proportions.
Automatically fixes accidental overpours
If you accidentally pour 1.2 ounces instead of 1 ounce, no big deal! The Perfect Drink automatically adjusts the amounts of every other ingredient so the ratios remain the same. As we found out during our extensive testing (tough job, right?), you may be surprised just how great your favorite drinks taste when created in perfect proportion.
Because The Perfect Drink does all of the math for you, it's also great for filling pitchers! Simply select the serving size and then place a carafe, jug, jar, urn, or Das Horn on the scale, and start pouring!
Expand your horizons with the "Cabinet" feature
We love the Perfect Drink's cabinet feature. Tell the app what ingredients you have on hand and it'll give you a list of cocktails you can create. You may be pleasantly surprised at how many new drinks you can create with the liquor you have lying around.
Start mixing right away!
The Perfect Drink includes just about everything you need to start creating flawless cocktails. In addition to the smart scale, you'll receive the phone/tablet stand, two (2) drink pouring spots, and a stainless steel 750mL cocktail shaker.
In order to get up and running, simply download the free app to your iOS or Android device.
