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.

A super-accurate smart scale is the key to the Perfect Drink's cocktail-making genius.
The smart scale is accurate to within 1 gram and records 30 measurements per second. 

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!

If you over pour an ingredient, the Perfect Drink automatically adjusts the recipe.

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.

The cabinet feature of the Perfect Drink helps isolate what delicious cocktails you can make with your readily-available ingredients.
Simply enter your readily-available ingredients and The Perfect Drink tells you what cocktails you can make!

Answer: They are a retailer. But they also make stuff. The Perfect Drink is one of their creations and we thought it was incredibly curiously awesome. They liked the video we had done with their Sånd, so we decided to work with them on another one. We hope you enjoy it because The Perfect Drink is darned cool.

Answer: The app is updated monthly with new features and recipes.

Answer: Yes! You can even add your own pictures for each step.
