Okay, so that review title may be a little bit hyperbolic, as we all know that delicious tiki is, by nature, pretty complex. Layers of exotic flavorings and spirits meld together to make an ethereal, boozy experience, but they also usually make for an expensive and hard-to-find shopping list. This is exactly where the strength of Total Tiki lies. First off, finding a single anthology with this much authentic tiki is all but impossible. Just try. Second, this app makes it so that there is no more thumbing through lengthy books, aimlessly searching for something you think you can make with what’s on hand. Total Tiki takes the digging and guess work out of finding the perfect cocktail for your tropical evening. Simply selecting the ingredients you have filters down results to the available recipes you can make right then and there. Even better is the feature that auto-applies substitutions based upon your inventory selections. This just further widens your available tiki drink options without requiring you to spend another penny. It’s honestly like having a professional mixologist on standby, catering to your every budget-minded whim. Back to my original point: tiki isn’t simple. Hasn’t ever been, and never will be (at least not without sacrificing a lot of flavor). However, it doesn’t have to be frustratingly complicated or expensive... and Total Tiki proves it! Take a sip and slide into your Polynesian pjs, this app is worth the snag.
Honestly the fact that this app is so well thought out made me write this review. Not only that, but I’ve been on this tiki craze lately and now I have 288 drink recipes that I can make!! I’ve made about 5 so far and have fallen in love with 1 but didn’t dislike the others. Believe me, I’ll be trying out many more! Hopefully by the end of the year I will have tried at least 50 more. Will update by then 😂 update: I now have 25 favorite cocktails and I know it will only continue to grow from here on out. What a wonderful app. I also got smugglers cove cocktail book but I still use the app more! Waaay more if I’m being honest
If you tiki then this app is a necessity.
As an amateur mixologist I’ve used a ton of drink recipe apps but this one is by far the best, particularly when it comes to Tiki drinks. Loads of amazing features and incredible recipes on an easy to use interface.
Jeff Berry has to be one of the most (if not the most) important people in the modern Tiki bar scene. This app is amazing; just spend the time to plug in the ingredients you have and away you go. Fully recommend for anyone wishing many days with an amazing drink in hand!
This is the first app I’ve ever spent more than $2.99 on and I would’ve payed double. Really wish we’d get an update with some new recipes though!
I use this app constantly! It is great if you are into cocktails , a MUST is you are into tiki. You get all of the Beachbum Berry books and his glorious research , all in one app. The only thing I think they could possibly add is a random feature, where the app picks a random drink for you to make based off your available ingredients. Even still, this is hands down the best value in all of app-dom!
After scouring websites and bookmarking recipes, I stumbled upon this app which is exactly what I hoped it would be! A comprehensive, encyclopedia-like listing of tiki recipes, along with a bit of history on each drink and ingredient. I LOVE that you can check off what ingredients you have, and it will list what drinks you can make, (as well as what you could make if you went out and bought just one more ingredient). This has been extremely helpful in getting our home bar set up by allowing us to narrow down ingredients without breaking the bank all at once. Highly recommend this gem of an app! If you love tiki drinks and want to learn more about them, you won’t be disappointed.
This app is amazing. The fact that I can load in what I have on the shelves and it spits out what I can make or what I just need a few more things for is fantastic. This and Smugglers Cove are my two must haves!
Warning: out of app purchases. You will end up buying a couple (OK, several) more bottles after trying out these recipes. But it will be worth it. This is not only the definitive list of tiki recipes, it is a great reference for all manner of runs and other ingredients, and always gives you a range of options of preferred, commonly available, and substitute choices.
