It’s a smartphone, but is it smart enough to mix you a drink?

Booze-centric apps can be fun and useful.

Is there anything quite as intelligent as a phone that allows you to ask it questions, surf the Web, talk, and play a rousing game of Fruit Ninja — all at the same time? Equally as intelligent are the hundreds of thousands of apps that are available for download with the push of a button. Naturally, our favorite apps are the ones that have anything to do with boozing, and thankfully the purveyors of smartphone apps are happy to deliver.

Whether you have an Android, iPhone, or iPad, these apps are at your willing and thirsty fingertips any time. Want to impress guests at your next party? Whip out an app for quick recipe tips and recommendations on beer and cocktails, and have your guests thinking you’re a walking boozy whiz kid.

Fair warning: these apps are all recent, but as we know, a new app or update is as common as breathing, so don’t be alarmed if by the time you check out these apps for your phone, there is already an update to it to make it bigger and better than before. As Beyoncé would suggest, ain’t nothing wrong with an upgrade.

Read on for some of the newest booze-centric apps for smartphones. Whether you’re on the hunt for cocktail recipes, cool new beers and spirits, or a way to document your drunken antics, these apps are sure to give whole new value to your smartphone. Cheers, and happy app-ing!

Cook Hands-Free with Food Network’s In the Kitchen App

You’ve just transferred some juicy tomatoes into the pot for a beautiful fresh pasta sauce and go to your phone to see the next step of the recipe, but your hands are covered in tomato juice. Time to stop and wipe off your hands to make sure you keep your phone clean.

Messy hands, meet Cook with Me, a collection of voice-activated recipes in Food Network’s In the Kitchen app where you can command Sage, the recipe assistant, to walk you through each step. There are also instructional videos along the way to make sure you’re on track to a delicious, fail-proof meal.

“We are always looking to solve our customers’ most common cooking problems when we think about making new updates to all of our Food Network products,” said Al Ming, director of product, apps and emerging technologies at Scripps Lifestyle Studios, which handles Food Network’s digital operations. “The Cook with Me hands-free feature is an essential tool for modern cooking experiences, and we are excited to bring this update to the In the Kitchen app.”

Open up the In the Kitchen app on your iPhone or iPad (available for download in the App Store). The Cook with Me collection is located under Top Picks – the first category you’ll see when you open the app. Choose one of the featured recipes and hit the button that says “Cook Hands-Free.” From there you’ll get a quick tutorial on how to use the voice commands and then you’re ready to cook — without the worry of smudging your phone with messy hands.

Right now there are nine popular, easy-to-make recipes available for hands-free cooking, and over time the list will grow to include more seasonal recipes from Food Network Kitchen’s chefs.

The kitchen is one place you should be getting your hands dirty! With help from Food Network’s In the Kitchen app, you don’t have to worry about ruining your tech while you work.

The Best iPhone Apps November 2011

The end of the month is here, and that means it's time to do a little housekeeping on our list of the absolute best iPhone apps . Who will be inducted?

The Best iPhone Apps

There's an ocean of apps out there. Whether you just got your iPhone and are feeling adrift or…

Sprd the Note : Share song with your friends directly from your iPhone. Import the track your want to share from your iPhone/iPod touch's music library in Sprd the Note and you'll have the option to share via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or email.

Is it Ready Yet? : Undercooked meat is not only gross, it's potentially dangerous. And overcooked meat? That's just wrong. Is It Ready? has 23 beef, pork, and poultry variations to help determine the proper amount of time you should keep your meat in the oven.

AirCassette for iPhone : It's a music player for your iPhone that transforms CoverFlow and iTunes and mp3s into a faux cassette player. You can relive the 80s, but without the bad hair and day-glo clothing. If you're so inclined you can make a mix tape for that special someone.

Astrid To-Do for iPhone : It's a full featured task manager that doesn't make you want to rip your eyeballs out. Set up individual or group projects from the app quickly and easily. Email integration includes the ability to complete tasks by email. Oh, and it's free.

Go : GO is an easy-to-use and beautiful app that lets users post photos, videos and messages onto their network (no cheating with backdated photos!). What's great about GO is that it offers an anonymous option so you can feel free to post whatever you want without attaching your handle to it.

NBC Sports Talk : NBC Sports Talk is an app that keeps track of NBC Sports' wonderful sports blog network, namely ProFootballTalk with the ahead of the curve news and incisive commentary. But you also get news about all the other sports too (baseball, basketball, college football, etc.). It's the place to be during sports' seasons.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition : The iPhone version is simply a Minecraft Eden, a place to build and dig. And it works fairly well. The game comes with 36 different blocks to work with, the ability to save your work on the iPhone or iPad and support for multiplayer worlds over a local Wifi connection.

Square Card Case : With the Square Card Case app, you don't have to pull out your wallet or your phone to pay for anything-you pay invisibly. It's like being a 'regular' and having a tab somewhere. Walk in, grab your stuff, walk out. How does it work? Cleverly, with GPS. The Square Card Case app automatically establishes a connection with their approved merchant once you're within 100 feet of the merchant's business (user opt-in, of course). Once you purchase your things, you just tell the merchant your name and they'll charge your account tied to the Square Card Case.

Jamie Oliver Is Everywhere: The Chef's New Android App

Jamie Oliver is at it again. Celebrity chef and the host of TV&aposs award winning "Food Revolution" has just brought his "Jamie&aposs 20 Minute Meals" app to Android mobile devices everywhere.

With 60 recipes to choose from, Oliver presents them to his tech-savvy users one step at a time along with photos to boot. There&aposs even a shopping list featuring all the necessary ingredients sorted by grocery aisle. Plus, Oliver has included 21 videos exclusively shot for the app showing Oliver in the kitchen using tips, tricks and basic kitchen skills to aid fans in their culinary explorations.

While iPhone users have had access to "Jamie&aposs 20 Minute Meals" for some time, now there are new menu items to choose from in his free "Jamie&aposs Recipes" iPhone app released in January. "Jamie&aposs Recipes" offers different pack upgrades so you can sort by dietary preferences. No word when it will be available on Android.

The mobile phone app world is a common ingredient for chefs wanting to be accessible to their audiences when they&aposre shopping at the supermarket and while in the kitchen. And this might not be more important to any chef right now than Jamie Oliver who has been in a struggle with the Los Angeles Unified School District over his attempts to film season two of "The Food Revolution" at various area schools. With consistent rejections by the school board to allow Oliver and his camera crew in schools, he&aposs pulled publicity stunts, opened a teaching kitchen in Brentwood and most recently hit the streets in his massive 18-wheeler mobile kitchen.

The best baby naming apps for moms who just can’t decide

Naming your baby is hands-down one of the most simultaneously exciting and nerve-wracking tasks you’ll face as an expectant parent. Luckily, in a world where your phone does everything from monitoring your home security to making hilarious fart noises, there’s definitely an app for that.

Since technology has taken over practically every aspect of pregnancy &mdash from making sure the time is right to conceive all the way up to tracking your baby’s growth in the womb &mdash it should come as no surprise that baby naming has found a nice little niche in the world of apps. A quick warning, though: Fiddling around on these can become a little bit addictive as you’re working to create a short list of the best possible names for baby.

1. Baby Names Genius by Health and Parenting Ltd. (Free, Google Play)

This pretty little app has a “genius” feature that learns what your favorites are and offers suggestions based on a number of parameters, including what you’ve liked in the past, parent name similarity and how you set up your profile. There’s even a community voting feature, but forewarned is fore-armed: People can get really weird when it comes to baby names.

2. Baby Names by Nametrix ($2, iTunes/Google Play)

Name nerds rejoice! This app is well worth the two bucks you’ll fork over for it, because it is by far the coolest little widget you could hope to have in your arsenal when you’re looking for names. It is more thorough than any other naming app by a mile or two, even compiling data on what names are most popular among doctors &mdash and strippers &mdash so you can search by something as random as possible future career or even political affiliation if the inclination grabs you. And it will.

3. Baby Names by Winkpass Creations (Free, iTunes)

Good old Winkpass has always been there for you with their pregnancy and period apps, so why not give their baby name app for iPhone a try? It’s a pretty simple-to-use app that doesn’t spam you with too many obtrusive ads, which makes it easy for name noobs to get started on the task.

4. Baby Names!! by Sevenlogics (Free, iTunes/Google Play)

This baby name app has a neat feature called the Genie that guesses which names go best with mom and dad’s name, and it also has an interactive quality to it: You can add your own names if you don’t see them and allow them to be ranked and favorited by others.

5. Baby Names by Schatzisoft (Free, iTunes)

This app has a massive aggregation of names that is fairly easy to sift through, which is probably why it’s had its share of turns at the top of the most popular baby-naming apps list. It even lists last names, which is fun to fool around with and also makes it easy to pair up favorite monikers to see how they look together.

6. Baby Names and Meanings by Mobile Mom/Rebellion Media (Free, iTunes/Google Play)

Consider this app your standard baby book, with a searchable database of names that include meanings, popularity, origin, preferred initials and separate lists for “popular” and “unique” names to let you find the perfect baby name.

7. Numerology Name Finder by Bliss by Numbers ($4, iTunes)

Looking for something a little more mystical? If you’re interested in name numerology, which uses an alphanumeric system to assign and predict character traits and “life path” information in a name, this might be the app you’re looking for. It even has a reverse search function that allows you to start with what you hope the outcome will be and generates names from there.

8. Baby Name Generator by AppHouse Software ($1, Google Play)

Don’t know where to start? Put your baby to work! What’s cute about this app is that it allows you to place the phone on your belly and let the baby pound on the screen, randomly generating a name. Obviously, you have final veto power, but it’s an interesting alternative to scrolling through hundreds of names.

9. 50,000 Baby Names by Pregniful Solutions Ltd. (Free, iTunes)

This one has tons of names to choose from (hence the name) and their tagline is “If you can’t find the perfect name with Baby Names it doesn’t exist!” You can search through tons of names by origin and keyword and get similar names if you need some extra inspiration, plus you can view name data by popularity and meaning. It is free, but there are a number of restrictions, including the number of names you can view or favorite per day. Those restrictions can be lifted with a “pay what you want” in-app purchase, though.

10. Baby Names U.S. by Niels Van Hove (Free, Google Play)

Looking for something a little more commonplace? This app is perfect. It has a simple UI and a simple premise: It sorts data from the U.S. Social Security Administration to give you the 3,000 most popular names, ensuring no future trouble on your child’s resume.

6 Easy Cocktail Recipes for your next Backcountry Hut Trip

Earning your turns in the backcountry requires sacrificing some luxuries. But, something that you don’t need to sacrifice is a spectacular après cocktail to cap your amazing day. Leave the Kool-Aid drink mix, Country Time Lemonade powder, and Crystal Light squeeze bottles at home. Instead, think ‘elevated cocktail experience’ and pack ingredients like a mini bottle of bitters for an Old Fashioned or cinnamon sticks for a hot smoked cider. Breck Distillery’s Liquid Chef Billie Keithley created 6 easy cocktails to take your drinking experience to new ‘elevations.’

When it comes to packing for après, keep it simple. Using fruit rinds, dehydrated fruits from trail mix, or snow can reduce the amount of ingredients you need to haul in. Read more below about how to efficiently pack your booze and ingredients.

Snowball Old Fashioned

Snowball Old Fashioned
2 oz Breckenridge Bourbon
1/4 oz maple syrup
*3 drops of bitters
*Orange zest
*Dehydrated cherries
Chill with a snowball
Combine all ingredients and stir. Add Snowball to your cocktail.

Optional: Smoke using a fire log

*Pack a mini bottle of bitters. Recycle your orange peels and use berries from your trail mix.

TIP: To make a smoked cocktail, use a smoking log from your fire. Safely remove the log, turn the glass upside down over the smoke, wait a few minutes and add the cocktail mixture to the glass. Swirl it around to get that smokey flavor. Do the same thing with a cinnamon stick to add a cinnamon kick to your cocktails. See the Hot Smoked Cider below.

Backcountry Tea

Backcountry Tea
1 oz Breckenridge Vodka
6 oz hot water
Teakoe Tea – Try it with the Berry Bodacious or the Nirvana Limòn Teas
Honey stick, clip one end and put open end down
Add a squeeze of lemon for added flavor

TIP: once the honey stick is empty, snip the other end of the honey stick and reuse it as a straw.

Cabin Tea

1.5 oz Breckenridge Bourbon
.5 oz maple syrup
Top with hot tea
Serve with a slice of bacon

Hot Smoked Cider

Hot Smoked Cider
1.5 oz Breckenridge Spiced Whiskey
Apple cider packet
6 oz hot water
*Smoke using a cinnamon stick

*Ignite cinnamon stick and smoke the glass while preparing cocktail. Pour cocktail into smoked glass.

TIP: Cinnamon sticks are flammable. Use them to help start your fire, as a potpourri for the hut, or as the perfect garnish or added flavor to your cocktail.

Elevation Remedy

1 oz Breckenridge Vodka
1 packet Emergen-C
1 jelly packet
6 oz water

*Shake all ingredients in water bottle.

Tips for packing your booze and ingredients

Purchase a Breck Distillery Backcountry Cocktail Kit. These Backcountry Cocktail Kits make the Snowball Old Fashioned, Backcountry Tea and the Hot Smoked Cider. Our kits come with a 1000ml Breck Distillery water bottle | $30.

Part of the popular pandemic food art, fruit sandos have made a sensation in the Instagram world due to their cutesy looks. The bread and fluffy whipped cream here is used as a canvas whilst fruit with vibrant hues like strawberry, orange, and kiwi are used as vivid paints. Not only do these sandos look good, but the sweetness from the cream and brightness from the fruit also complement each other so well, creating refreshing contrast flavours which make it perfect as a dessert – or even just a snack.

The back-up plan

If you can&rsquot make it to the store and your wine supply is running dangerously low, you still have options that don&rsquot include sending out a relative who might go rogue and pick up an atrocious bottle. A new crop of on-demand alcohol apps have popped up in certain major metropolitan areas and might be the answer to all your problems.

Saucey, Drizly, and Minibar are among the apps that have launched in the last year to bring you wine, beer, and liquor with just a few taps on your iPhone. Drizly is in more markets than Minibar and Saucey, covering nine metro areas including Austin, Boston, NYC, Los Angeles, D.C., and Denver. Each app offers free delivery, but some have delivery minimums. Now, I haven&rsquot tested these apps (yet!) so I can&rsquot go so far as to recommend them. But if you&rsquore in a big city and need alcohol in a pinch, the Uber-for-wine tactic might be your best move this holiday season.
